David M's Experience

Experience description:   

While travelling in a car on a highway at approximately 90 kph we were hit head on by a transport truck travelling in excess of 90 kph.  The engine was forced through the fire wall and it hit me in the driver's seat and pushed me into the rear passenger's seat. My head hit the head restraint and I was knocked unconscious.  I had a number of other injuries such as broken ribs, broken jaw, broken left hand and broken left knee.   I was unconscious for about a month.  When I started to become conscious I explained to boss that I was in a Lancaster bomber crash.  I correctly described the instrument panel of a Lancaster bomber correctly.  My boss has flown as a navigator in Lancaster bombers in the Second World War.  I had never seen the inside of a Lancaster bomber.
