Angela watched as the car slammed into the back of a pick-up truck on the opposite side of the street. The next moment, the truck was airborne.
“I had this red zinger tea, so it was red all inside the car. I said, ‘No, it’s not blood. It’s just tea. It’s not blood. Someone get me out of this car.’”

Never Caving In

The 2005 C240 Sedan was designed with an exceptionally rigid body shell containing High-Strength/Low-Alloy steel in critical areas throughout -- including the A-pillars that supported the front of the roof. It also featured multi-chambered window curtain air bags and adaptive dual-stage front air bags that helped protect Angela during the collision. Today, she and Erik own a 2010 ML350 SUV and a 2008 R350 Crossover.

According to Erik, the proud parents talked about old TV shows they used to watch as kids in an attempt to keep Angela distracted during labor.
