I have no idea. I’ve never been in that position. Hopefully I never have to find out.

Would depend entirely on the circumstances.. drink/drug driver hell no! A legitimate accident where there was no wrong doing, then maybe. I pray I never have to be in that situation and my heart goes out to anyone who is ever in that situation

I would rather leave the forgiveness question to the family of the guy that did it - after I take him out.

To each their own. I think some people need to forgive so they can move on. Others may choose to remain angry. I'd like to think I could forgive but I pray I'll never be in that situation where I have to make such a decision

Not a chance.
