On the afternoon of June 23, we encountered a dust storm on Interstate 10 in Western New Mexico. The visibility went to zero in seconds, and we struck a van stopped in our driving lane. Fortunately we had slowed to about 35 mph, but still had a crash. The air bags deployed and within seconds an OnStar representative was on the line and inquired if we were injured and if we needed assistance. We did not suffer serious injuries, and an Border Patrol Officer who had witnessed the accident had already called for help. The OnStar representative was very calming and reassuring, especially for my wife who was very frightened and in some pain. She stayed on the line for a long time, keeping in touch with everything that was happening. We do not want to be without OnStar every again.
