Truck got rear-ended Sunday

My wife was in a pretty big auto accident yesterday. She got rear-ended by some old lady who wasn’t paying attention to what she was doing. How do you miss the line of stopped cars at a stoplight when the street is only a block long? Not only was she acting weird, driving without identification or insurance paperwork, but she also lied to the police a couple of times. The police had to wait on DMV results because they thought she was misleading them with who she was. Unfortunately she passed a breathalyzer test so the cop couldn’t arrest her. He did say she seemed like she was on something, but he could tell what so he couldn’t arrest her.

The scariest part of all this is that my wife is only 17 weeks pregnant. Those seatbelts against the stomach can be very dangerous for pregnant women. We ended up spending 5 or 6 hours in the hospital while they ran a series of tests. What a nightmare.

My truck seems pretty toast to me, but hopefully they’ll be able to just replace the bed of it and go from there. But the whole rear and left side are packed in, dented, scraped, and just all around jacked up. Even though it bent the pipe where the gas goes in, no gas leaked (thank god).

Was not a fun Sunday afternoon. 🙁
