Sometimes takes a few days for whiplash symptoms and whatnot to manifest themselves. Hope she's OK. You never know what lasting effects head, neck, and shoulder injuries might have. BTW, sounds like a pretty fancy car she was driving. Not that there is anything wrong with that...I hope!

Depends on the financial stability of the parents. But on the other hand, if you were driving a 10 year old Chevy Cavalier it would seem extremely fancy, don't you think?

Actually, a 2006 is an eight-year old car. I have one with 185,000 miles on it. Never thought of it as being fancy!

Got me! I drive a 2004 Chevy Malibu! It's paid for, runs good, and has only about 113k. When I saw "Lincoln" and "wreck" associated with a student-athlete, I spaced out for a second and jumped to an unwarranted conclusion.
