Wife rear ended while parked at red light. Other car travelling 40-45 mph when it struck her car. The driver's seat broke on the right side, causing her ribs and soft tissues to be injured. Car has not yet been totalled by insurance, it is still being investigated. We wonder if this is a common occurence in these cars, a 2002 Honda Odyssey.
