One place that I found that you almost died

    • Brian Lamb: One place that I found that you almost died.


    • Mitt Romney: Well, that’s true. When I was in France, I was driving a car that included the leader of our church in France, and a wonderful gentleman and his wife, and three people in the backseat.


And we were coming up a hill and around a corner going -- an area I knew well near Bordeaux, driving very slowly and carefully. And a drunk driver was passing a truck around a corner and suddenly as we rose above the hill and around the corner, there was a car in front of us going about 70 miles an hour.


It hit us head-on and I was knocked unconscious. The person sitting next to me was killed. Another individual was very seriously injured. But on my passport, because I was unconscious and removed from the vehicle with the Jaws of Life, the police, as they were sorting out the different individuals, the different injured folks, they took my passport and wrote on it, ”he is dead,” in French of course, il est mort.


And that word actually made it through the diplomatic channels to the United States embassy and it showed up in the news media in the United States that the governor’s son, Mitt Romney, had been killed in a tragic accident in France.


As it turned out, the rumors of my death were premature. And my parents were very pleased, as was my then-girlfriend very pleased that I was still among the living.
