Sometimes an entire story is told by only some images and a few words.

This is one of those stories.

Below you'll see a letter addressed to John Hughes, Chevrolet Volt Marketing & Promotions Manager.  The author of the letter if Dr. Kerry Johnson.  The video will let you in on who this Johnson guy is and why he wrote this letter.

Hi Mr. Hughes,

I got your name from my Volt Dealer here in Orange County, CA.

I bought a 2013 Volt in November 2012 for my 20 year old daughter Caroline and we all loved it.

I have a Porsche 911s and a BMW 740il. The Volt was our favorite car to drive.

On August 3rd, a drunk driver hit our Volt so hard it knocked the Volt off the road down a 15 foot embankment. Caroline in the Volt rolled several times down the embankment before hitting a tree. Caroline was taken by ambulance to a local hospital where she suffered only a black eye, arm lacerations and stiches to her left foot. Our Farmers insurance adjuster said he never saw a car that mangled without a fatality.

We are grateful to you and GM for making the Volt so safe. The fact that Caroline survived that crash was miracle from God and the 10 Volt airbags. I am in the middle of buying another Volt right now and thought you would like to share this story with anyone else at GM or with any potential Volt buyers.

Dr. Kerry Johnson

P.S. Attached are the photos of the accident. Feel free to call me for any more details.

The Chevy Volt is safe.  What more can we say?
