Dinner and a….Wreck?!

 

car accident

 

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?

Judy-
This is so sad, but I am glad you and your husband are alright. I hope they catch the "creep" who did this to y'all. Enough with the bad luck in 2013! xo

I hate to hear about this! That is terrible. I'm glad you're not hurt worse than you are though. There obviously must've been something going on with that guy if he ran like that. I hope they catch him and give him his just reward!

Glad to hear you we're not seriously hurt. Anymore it seems like people are acting out in desperation and it is very scary out there.

I'm so glad the two of you are okay. I hope they catch the other guy so he can pay for all the damage. What a scary night.....

I'm so sorry that happened to you and your husband, Judy. I know that was so upsetting ... and scary! You just never know how people are going to react in a situation like that and I think you and your husband were wise not to confront the guy. Obviously, he had a problem and could have already been in trouble with the police.

I hope you feel better soon and can get your car fixed in time for your vacation next month.

Your title sounds like a movie and so does your story. Bad ending and all.
Let us know if they catch the guy.

Hope you will be able to enjoy your get away.

Judy, I was also hit by a hit and run driver and I was seriously injured. He didn't even stop and was never caught! I am glad you and your husband are okay.
xx, Sherry

So scary! How are you feeling tonight? I sure hope they are able to locate the driver. And...that he has insurance. I'm just happy neither you nor your husband was badly injured.

Big hugs,
Kat
