    I suffered through my first accident yesterday with my children in the car, a carbon-fiber sport utility on loan for an exercise in the Alps. We were hit by an oncoming vehicle and pushed off the road bed and went rolling down an embankment with a 45 degree incline, ultimately resting upside down. No injuries thank God with one child frightened and crying and the other laughing at the "bumper car" event. Myself, I was pretty damn shaken. The exterior panels on the SUV look like cracked glass from the abuse the paint and panels took. There are obvious issues but the road service was able to drive the thing back up the incline once righting it.

    I'm thankful and amazed.
