This was the weekend for car accicents. I came across two, and hubby was involved in one, luckily a fairly minor one.

Saturday, as I was driving to Mom's, I came across one where a motorcyclist had either been hit or fallen off his bike. The person was lying in the road with other people gathered around. I called 911 and discovered they had already been notified. This morning, I came across another in which a pickup hit a car. It looked like everyone had gotten out of their vehicles, but a woman was lying in the grass on the shoulder. I called 911 again, this time they hadn't yet been notified.

Yesterday morning, hubby was called out at 5 to investigate a burglary. He was making a left turn on a two-lane road and the person behind him looked down for second, didn't see hubby, and rammed him at about 40 mph. Hard enough to push hubby's car across the road and into a ditch. Luckily hubby only bumped his head (which left a small knot) and pulled some back muscles...he checked out OK at the hospital. This morning he has a little bit of swelling above his eye and a wee shiner. The funny thing is the guy that hit him is pastor at a church where hubby has done traffic details. Hubby thinks God has a sense of humor because just a couple days ago he was noticing how one eye is a little bigger than the other and was wishing they were the same size. Now with the one eye swollen, it's about the same size as the other. As they say, God works in mysterious ways!
