I believe there was only one Mazda Bongo in North Carolina, but even that one has gone now. Club member Butch Barksdale was minding his own business when he got broadsided by someone running a red light. Fortunately Butch sustained less damage than his vehicle.....

Oh no! That looks painful :-( Glad to hear that Butch isn't a write-off, lets hope the bruises subside quickly!

Glad the driver is ok. Bongo has a fairly long side to spread the impact along it seems, buckled from front to back. Put it this way he looked
to be in the better side of the van to be on, looking at the passenger seat. :( Very bad and scary to look at but main thing is driver ok.
