Our Friend Herb Hall, owes his life to his H1 Hummer. Check out his amazing story.
Herb was at a complete stop and was the first vehicle in line after exiting the freeway. As the light turned green, Herb processed just like anyone else would. Out the corner of his eye, he saw an 18 wheeler long haul truck heading toward him on the driver side. Herb explains “at that moment, everything happened in slow motion”, then WHAM!
The impact from the 18 wheeler rendered Herb unconscious for several moments. Coming back to consciousness he felt heat near his face. At first though, he believed his truck was on fire. What an intense way too come back to reality! With a sense of self preservation, Herb tried to get out of his now crushed H1 Hummer. A bystander rushed over to Herb and explained that his vehicle was not on fire and to remain in place until medical assistance arrived.
It turns out that the intense heat that Herb felt was coming from the radiator of the 18 wheeler. His Face was just inches away from the radiator!
The report determined that the 18 wheeler was going about 60 MPH when it ran the red light and slammed into Herb’s H1 with a full load. The 18 wheeler pushed the H1 20 yards before coming to a complete stop. Herbs Hummer 2003 Soft-Top was completely totaled but it saved his life. Herb walked away from this horrific accident with a little glass in his arm and extremely sore from head to toe.
“My hummer was my daily driver. I loved that truck and plan on having another as soon as I settle with the insurance company. Hummer H1 is the only way to drive!!!! “ – HerbRead more
