Too Nervous to Do Much Today…. Still Shaking

I was only out of bed for about five minutes this morning when the phone rang at 6:45 am. 

It was Jeff.  He’d had a wreck on his way to work.

I called 911 for him and then the two younger ones and I got dressed and headed over there. 

The other vehicle had a wheel that looked like this too.  Her vehicle looked rather new.  It was banged up on both sides from spinning and playing pinball with the guard rail. 

It was dark at that time and there was a car in front of her that had its lights on.  Jeff never saw her until after she stopped spinning facing the back of his car.  Still no lights on.  He was kind of stunned I think because of that.  We don’t think there were any witnesses who stayed to talk to the police.  If only someone could corroborate his story. 

Neither Jeff nor the other driver required a trip in the ambulance.  The paramedics checked both of them out.  Her side airbag deployed but she said she was not hurt.  Jeff’s b/p was 150 over 110.  Imagine that.

Anyway, we are down to one operable vehicle since this one appears to be totaled.  It’s a 1993 and we bought it new.  It’s sad to see it leave us in this way but we are so blessed that no one was hurt.
