Before we will answer any of your questions we wanna know what a "freak powerline accident" consists of.......
so here's the story. full truth. even have the police report if you want to argue it... friday before break i traded cars with my youth leader brett. i needed a truck, and he needed to take his daughter to the doctors. so me, an avid cyclist leaves his bike ontop of his car sometimes...little did i know that when brett would drive down the same road that i had driven 3 times allready(in the past hour or so) it would get caught on a powerline, and riped from the top of the car.. racks and all. all to the side of the road.
