North Vancouver’s Clayton Faulconer is very blunt about his status in this world.
“I should be dead,” he says.
The North Vancouver resident has followed his passion for arm wrestling to multiple national titles and appearances at the World Armwrestling Federation world championships. That’s not what could have killed him though. It’s the car crashes that has him contemplating his very existence.
Faulconer has been involved in three serious car crashes in his life. The first happened in 1997, a head-on collision near Prince George (check the photo gallery above to see what his car looked like after that crash). The second was in 2006 when he was a passenger in a truck that smashed into a manure spreader near Mission B.C. Those crashes were bad. The third was worse.
