Oh man. Yesterday was a doooozy. I was returning from Wawa near work and I slowed and stopped at a red light. Next thing you know a woman came screeching behind me and slams into the telephone pole right next to me! (That’s the actual telephone pole above. I can’t believe it wasn’t smashed in two) She was probably going about 40MPH. She must have been distracted and swerved so she wouldn’t hit me.
I look and I see the airbags. Her car is totaled.
I jump out and her face is covered with blood from the airbag. And she’s screaming and crying hysterically. Someone else at the Wawa saw it and called 911. It was pretty bad.
So I look in the back and there’s a baby in the back seat. His head was smooshed up and at first I thought maybe his neck was broken but it wasn’t. He was fine as far as I could tell. The woman is still screaming and appeared to be in shock. She’s saying, “My husband stole all my money and kicked me out of the house and I’m on my way to a woman’s shelter.” She repeated this about 10 times.
Then the baby started crying so I held the bottle through the window for the baby because I was afraid that if I picked the baby up I might hurt it.
A nurse must have seen what happened and ran across the street and was helping to calm the woman down.
When the police arrived I left. And then when I drove away I realized how surreal and crazy it was and my hands started shaking.
Yup. It was fuuuucked uuup!
Oh and in other car related news a deer jumped in front of my car this morning and I hit it’s foot. No damage.
I hope car related bad things don’t happen in threes.
