This morning was a good one. The day started out great. I bought tickets to go see Alice Cooper in September at the York, Pennsylvania Fair. We have seats in the second row of Section 207.
The work day was busy as usual. I left work on time and decided to take the expressway 490 West going home. There’s usually a backup in the exit lane for 390 North. I got into the lane and stopped behind the cars lined up in front of me.
When I heard tires squealing, I knew someone had been rear ended behind me. I didn’t see it, but I could hear the accident. I wasn’t certain whether to move or where to go if I did.
Suddenly there was an SUV shooting past me on the shoulder to my right. It looked like he was going to go past me and miss me. Then he ricocheted off of the concrete wall and clipped the front end of my car. Damn it!
The twenty two year old kid in the Honda sedan that started the collision was going too fast. This is his car behind mine after he rear ended the Honda Pilot.
This is my poor car.
They towed her away. This is the second April in a row where I’ve had an accident because someone else wasn’t paying attention and I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Collateral damage.
It was snowing. It was cold. I ended up sitting in the back of the nice, handsome State Trooper’s car. He offered to drive me home.
I had my friend Doug from work pick me up instead. He was still at work and he lives just around the corner from me.
So now I have to get my car fixed. Again. I’m thinking next April? I’ll leave my car at home and take the bus.
