It was not a great weekend for us.
Yesterday we were involved in an accident, a hit and run!
My car was not hit but granddaughter Jasmin was behind me in her car.
We were both stopped for a traffic light when a crazy driver came up behind her
at a high rate of speed, weaving, not braking, and crashed into her rear!
Thankfully she is apparently not hurt, and somehow her car missed hitting mine
by about 2 inches, so we are OK too! Her car is another matter and we are
hoping it can be repaired.
BUT. . . . . .here's the amazing part, this insane driver threw his vehicle into reverse
after hitting Jasmin, screeched backward across the road, turned and took off,
leaving part of his front grille, headlights and other debris in the road behind us!
Insurance - doubtful, and probably why he left the scene.
Inebriated or texting, possible.
It all happened in what seemed the blink of an eye.
We three stood for almost an hour in the rain awaiting the Police.
Later Bob and I drove around in hopes we'd find the damaged car parked
somewhere, but didn't.
Just thankful we have no visible injuries, especially Jasmin,
but our stress levels are definitely up.
Thinking how driving is no longer a pleasure within the city.
I'm thinking of staying home today where the most dangerous thing is a kitchen knife!
