Talk about a week from hell!! It started this Wednesday when I was driving home for lunch. I was approaching an intersection where I had a red light, so of course I started to slow down, and well before I got to the intersection the light turned green so I sped back up. I was in the right hand land and there was a big utility truck in the left hand lane. Well as I passed the utility truck a pedestrian ran out in front of me and I hit him! He slid across my hood and landed in the windshield smashing it before he landed in the middle of the intersection. Oh course I ran to the guy a secured him and called 911. The guy was awake and coherent and followed my directions to lay still. He had a compound fracture though of the leg that was very obvious. As far as I know thought he's still okay, I haven't heard if he had any other injuries as of yet.
And luckily for me there were enough witnesses to give testimonies on what happened; it was during lunch hour downtown in the city. All the testimonies were the same and coincided with mine and the guy got sided for not following pedestrian traffic lights. Even thought he was sided it's still been a complete nightmare for me. I have to put up my deductible for my car insurance until they know how to go after the guy to collect for damages, which I have almost $2000 worth of damages to my car. I am just praying he has Home Owners insurance or even Car Insurance because my insurance company said they could go after those companies to collect the repair debt. UGH! What I mess!! Talk about a driver's nightmare come true, to actually hit a pedestrian!
But it's not done yet! Last night my father was in a car accident where he got rear ended by a guy going about 60mph. And get this, before the guy hit my father he was involved in 3-4 other hit and run accidents that night, one including a pedestrian. Even after he hit my father's car, with airbags diploid, he drove the car away from the accident and hit another person before actually stopping for good. My father got banged up pretty good, but it could have been a lot worse. He has a lot of bruising and has to wear a neck brace for the next 2 weeks. My fathers car got totaled in the accident.
So yeah it's been a really crazy and insane week for my family, I am ready for a better weekend... I HOPE! *fingers crossed*
