Last night as we set out for a nice dinner we were involved in a hit and run! The car that hit us had first come straight across where we were when he was originally sitting in a turn lane…I saw him pull up next to us which blocked our line of vision to merge into the traffic so my husband said he was just going to let the guy go first….all of a sudden I looked over and said “he’s going to hit us” and about that time he plowed into my side of the car…BAM! I was scrambling over to my husband’s side (driver) as it appeared the car was going to keep coming into my side of the car. When it all ended my husband got out and I could hear shouting coming from the other car….these days you don’t know what anyone might do so I begged my husband to not say anything but just see about the damage. I tried calling 911 but was so shook up I couldn’t so I handed my cell phone to my husband and we called the police. About that time, the driver of other car said he was going to “turn around” and sped off, then made a U-turn and took off down the street where he had just come from! We got a partial tag number, description of the car and the driver and his passenger….I have never been involved in anything like this! Thankfully no one was hurt but I’m a little sore today and sitting with a heating pad on my shoulders. The police think they may be able to track down the owner of the car with the partial tag and description of the car….I hope they do! The guy probably didn’t have insurance or possibly didn’t have a license…he may even have some warrants out for him….why would he run?
We’ll be taking the car for an estimate tomorrow and getting in touch with our agent so we can start the process of getting our car fixed. We had just talked on Friday night about taking a little vacation next month so hopefully the body shop can get our car fixed before then.
So…how was YOUR weekend?
