In the midway somewhere he got a call on his cell phone. He picked up the call and within a fraction of second the car struck with another car. All the friends were lucky enough because all of them had minor injuries except the driver. The driver or my friend suffered major injuries and spent almost a month in the hospital before discharge from the hospital.
