Whoa, glad that you are ok. Material things can be replaced.

Always go to the doctor after a crash, even if all seems fine. I had something similar, thought I was good, turned out, i had a featured plate in my back... which hasn't been an issue until the last couple of years.

Last night I was leaving a friends house heading back onto the island from bluffton on highway 278, a couple days ago one of my friends were telling me how the camaro has a 5 star safety rating in every category and I was impressed but I wasn't thinking anything of it.

I was just getting to the intersection at Buck Island Road and I was doing around 57 mph in the far right lane. I saw this car in the opposite direction making a left turn to turn down buck island road, and wasn't thinking anything of it.

I was assuming they were going to slow down, to check and make sure they were clear to go, next thing I know I look over and their just making the turn, in the middle of the intersection about to hit me head on. I swerved to try to avoid the impact but it was to late. They hit me doing at least 50 mph broad side in the drivers side door. I spun out for a little and landed about 400 ft. Away from the other car in the grass. After realizing what happened I patted myself down to see if anything was broken or anything and then checked on them.

The drivers side door caved in about a foot to two feet, the front tire blew and the whole drivers side was demolished. But I walked out of the car totally unharmed, the only thing is I'm a bit sore from the seat belt but nothing serious. The fire department EMTs arrived and thought they had to cut me out of the wreckage and everyone was amazed at how bad of a wreck it was, but how I was totally unharmed.

I just wanted to share this story with everyone at Chevrolet and everyone ay the camaro5 family, chevy has been in my families blood threw generations and I realized why, they make amazing, safe, gorgeous cars.

I just wanted to say "thank you will all my heart chevy" for your guys smart studying and determination to make a safe car it really paid off for me in my case, you guys saved my life and I can't thank you enough

Last week my friend passed away after loosing control of her BMW and clipped a tree, and I'm fortunate that I was in a camaro during that event if I was in anything else I could of been seriously injured.

Thank you all again, and thank you for your time.
Man 278 has and always will be a dangerous road. I grew up in the area (simmonsville rd)

Good to hear you are ok. Chevy should think about making a commercial around your story, highlighting how safe their cars can be, especially the Camaro.

So glad you are okay, Not sure that is a total, I'm assuming the passenger side is okay. looks like they may be able to fix that. If not it's going to have a lot of good salvage parts on it. One way or the other "the Bee will go on!!!"

Glad to see you are driving again. Nice to see the insurance company honoring their customer.

Did you have the old key or the new key? Did the air bags deploy?

I'm thinking they obviously did but they are telling me my air bags might not deploy if I don't change the key. But I like the key over what they want to give me to replace it.
