No, This Is Not A Joe-k

Jaws of Life to the Joe-kster’s rescue



I was driving down the road, approaching an intersection with a green light
when a driver in a pickup truck drives through a red light and
hits my 2012 Honda Civic...
the Joe-kster's car after being hit by a red-light driver

“Jaws of Life” to the rescue - a big thanks to the Abbotsford, B.C.
firemen, police and paramedic rescue crews

Could have been much worse - ended up with only a fractured rib

Hydraulic rescue tools are used by emergency rescue personnel to assist vehicle extrication of crash victims, as well as other rescues from small spaces. These tools include cutters, spreaders, and rams. They are popularly referred to in the English-speaking Commonwealth nations and the U.S. as the “Jaws of Life”, a trademark of Hurst Performance Inc. The “Jaws of Life” were first used in 1963 as a tool to free race car drivers from their vehicles after crashes.
