You Make the Call!

Was this woman, A - A battered housewife?
B - A mugging victim?
Or C - The loser/winner in a bar fight and this is her mug shot??

None of the above, this is my dear sister, Sara, who survived a freak accident and has lived to tell about it. They had just parked their motor home at the medical center in Omaha late one night and she was parking their Jeep, hear after to be referred to as 'Tank'.
Sara was exiting Tank, had the door open and just got out, heard a noise, looked up and car was coming right at her. She woke up, on the ground, pinned in the triangle of the mangled jeep door and the other car, bleeding profusely. Her husband, Max, who was still in the motor home, had the presence of mind to call 911. The paramedics had a short distance to come, slid under the door of Tank, slapped a cervical collar on Sara and slid her out onto a board.
This happened about 10:30 at night, they left the emergency room at 5:30 A.M., she said mostly because her injuries were minor compared to gun shot wounds, etc. which seem to be more prevalent  at night.
Sara said she came to hearing the other guy swearing profusely and she kept saying, "I'm still alive, I'm still alive!!" She also reiterates that she has no pain, just lost the feeling at the top of her head. More bruises show up but she and we know, she was extremely lucky. We are all very grateful for Tank protecting her.
Sara also said it is true about always wearing clean underwear, in case you are in an accident!
