Hi Mr. Hughes,
I got your name from my Volt Dealer here in Orange County, CA.
I bought a 2013 Volt in November 2012 for my 20 year old daughter Caroline and we all loved it.
I have a Porsche 911s and a BMW 740il. The Volt was our favorite car to drive.
On August 3rd, a drunk driver hit Caroline from the right rear traveling in the same direction.
The drunk driver hit our Volt so hard it knocked the Volt off the road down a 15 foot embankment.
Caroline in the Volt rolled several times down the embankment before hitting a tree.
Caroline was taken by ambulance to a local hospital where she suffered only a black eye, arm lacerations
and stitches to her left foot. Our Farmers insurance adjuster said he never saw a car that mangled without a fatality.
We are grateful to you and GM for making the Volt so safe. The fact that Caroline survived that crash
was a miracle from God and the 10 Volt airbags. I am in the middle of buying another Volt right now
and thought you would like to share this story with anyone else at GM or with any potential Volt buyers.
