so, I'm going up the interstate..on my way to a dreaded dental appt..
about 50 feet in front of me, an 18-wheeler in the left lane, a little passengar car in the right. The 18 wheeler swerves to the right a bit and then APPEARS to see the car, and just as I start to let my foot off the brake that I was preparing to press as he began to swerve (am I spelling
that right??), he plows back to the right. Sent the car off the road, across a ditch and up a huge imbankment..then out of sight. I am in instant horror. I notice the truck never hit his brakes after the impact, so I go through a quick debate..do i get the tag # or stop? I rationalize that he's probably going to the next exit to turn around and there is likely injuries in the car, so I stop. A 17 yr old child emerges at the top of the imbankment about the time I reach the bottom. Her first reaction..I will forever remember..she threw her arms and hands to the sky..and thanked God. Then she stumbled down the embankment and collapsed in my arms crying. Her worst visable injury was a hematoma to her forearm. She even, against my advice, climbed back up the embankment to get her cell phone. Her car was probably totalled (a very nice Mazda btw), her progress was stopped when she hit a row of small trees. I still can't believe her car didn't flip as it went through the ditch.
I still can't believe the bas#$@* RAN!!! I sooooooo wish I had gone after him.
