MR2 Related Deaths
The reality of driving
Over the years I have always preached how safe the MR2's are - particulary for their size ... I still hold to that as truth. But gone are the days when I would proudly state that with all of my years in the MR2 community I was only aware of one fatality in an MR2 accident.
Recently one of our owners perished in his MR2. Unfortunately I did not have the opportunity to know him, but like many others I share the grief and the pain of a senseless loss of life.
His story has inspired this page. The startling reality of his passing inspired me to research MR2 related deaths ... I was shocked by what I found, and I share it with you here.
I share it to remind you ... to remind you that our cars are safe, but our cars are not bullet proof ...
... and our cars can kill others.
Take some time and read these articles below ... Think about how you drive ... think about how close you are to joining these people.
These MR2 drivers were not all guilty, but their lives are all different.
Please be safe.
In memory Adrian Cummings, 1981-2003 and Logan Friedrich, 1983-2003.
