I got home today after Church, determined to clean house. And that’s what I did. But in the late afternoon I heard something
that sounded like a bomb. I looked out
my windows, and saw neighbors running to the front of my house. I saw my poor Ford Taurus, crashed about 20
feet into my neighbor’s yard.
The rear half of my Taurus had been smashed to smithereens. Fortunately, the idiot who hit it … his car
was also disabled, so he could not “hit and run.”
I am deeply grateful for my neighbors. They had feared I was in the car when it was demolished. They were very kind and supportive. They were
onsite and calling 911 even before I could get out of my house.
The Police arrived promptly.
The wrecker also arrived promptly.
I can’t say how I felt, seeing my car being towed away.
I am grateful to the neighbors who helped me retrieve
belongings from the car before it was towed away.
But I don’t know what to do now. Since I was 16, I have always had a car. For the first time since I was 16, I don't have a car ... because mine was towed to the junkyard. I’m not sure what to do now.
Here are some images.
My poor car. Crashed up into the neighbor's yard.
The wrecker crew is shoveling all the glass, plastic, and metal off to the side of the street.
The tow-truck is trying to get by car up. They had a hard time of it. The frame was so badly bent, and the rear end was so damaged, that they had trouble getting it up on the truck.
Farewell, dear Taurus. You served me well. It breaks my heart to see the rear half of the car just decimmated by the idiot driver who crashed into you.
This was the 1st photo I took. I had parked my car with its rear end by the utility pole. You can see how far the marauding car hit it.
And here is the car that demolished my car. (The woman at left is just a kind neighbor helping him.) This yahoo has a 2012 model car. He totalled mine. And he had no proof of insurance at the scene of the assault. .. I wonder: Why does a stupid, recklesss 20-something-year-old afford a 2012 model car ... and I'm now without my 2002 car (which is all I can afford)? Neighbors reported that he was tossing baggies out of his car when it crashed. I guess drugs pay a lot more than my salary.
