And if Floods Weren't Enough

Last Thursday, the day after the rains started (beautiful today though) my younger son was in a bit of a fender bender. Fortunately he is fine, sore, but fine and he wasn't at fault either. Remember, turning traffic never has the right away unless its a green arrow! The gentleman that hit Alex had his vision obscured by a car in the other turn lane, Alex was going straight through on the green. Based on the extent of the damage I don't think he even slowed down when he started the turn into Alex's lane.


Alex's car, the good side. The front bumper is in the backseat

The not so good side

And the driver's door still won't open


The bad car

I think this one is even more heavily damaged, definitely not a 15 mph collision,

    1. The cars definitely came out the worst in this collision, only bumps and bruises for the drivers.

    1. He has been very lucky so far, he has walked away from both. I am tired of car shopping though.

    1. I had originally thought that the other driver must have been stopped in his turn lane, then I saw the cars, no way was he stopped, he was gunning through to makes his left.
