...made a left in front of me on my way to work fifteen years ago a little after 5am. I was doing around 30mph. The car was totaled, and because i wasn't sitting back far enough, my right knee hit the lower dashboard. The shoulder belt fractured my sternum, which took eight weeks to heal, and i got operated on for torn cartilage in my right knee. It taught me to sit as far back as i comfortably and safely can when i drive as well as when i'm just a passenger.
