    He was in a very bad car accident the other day (he's just a little banged up, thank goodness). His iPhone was ejected from the vehicle & the case just has a small scratch on it & the iPhone is still 100%. So glad I got him to buy that case!

    Note the "he's just a little banged up, thank goodness" part of my post. Of course I care more about my husband than his iPhone.

    No he wasn't using his phone. The accident was due to rain making his truck skid.

    Also, the accident was on Tuesday. I could see comments about me caring more about the phone if I posted this right away. My husband is totally fine aside from a few bruises & scratches. I am happy we do not have to replace a $500 phone that was purchased a week before the accident.

    nice to know both your husband and his phone made it out with just a few scratches.

    you should send otterbox a nice little testimonial on how durable their products can be

    Even if the phone would have gotten toasted, wouldn't your auto insurance have covered it?

    p.s. glad everyone/everything is OK. Hopefully the truck is easily fixable or totaled (who doesn't like a new truck? :) )
