    People were ejected seriously hurt there’s no need to be negative just be gracious u got to work safe. If u could see the pain and fear in the victims eyes maybe u would b more appreciative of not having broken bones, internal bleeding, pain so severe u can hardly stand it, as well as no car or the inability to work and possibly provide for ur family and or urself.
