Wow, he is fortunate to be ok!
Yes, my FJ is pink, I'm all about Team Jacob, beer is not for the horses nor is whiskey for the men, they are both for me.

Wow, he's very, very fortunate to be ok.  His insurance company on the other isn't so fortunate.

Wow, what kind of a car was that?

Glad he's ok.
I went through that except with a cow elk not a big bull. Scary stuff!
My interpretation of the rules are open to interpretation.
Once I thought I was wrong but I was mistaken.

Glad to hear your friend is ok.
Looks like he may be able to salvage that drivers side tire.
The rest will be $300 worth of scrap metal.

Glad he's alright, but in the car vs. elk battle there was certainly no winner.
If you've ever had a wild game roast in your airport carry-on, you might be a redneck.

Happened on I90 near cle elum,  and the car was brand new Ford edge. I'm not a Ford fan, but it does prove ford tough, too early?..... Both occupants walked away with just soreness .
