Today, Jim went golfing with a friend & on the way home, this is what happened :( He went to a Sunoco station to pick up a newspaper for me & as he was pulling out, a lady hit him right in the side. A truck was turning into the station & Jim saw that the traffic was clear & the lady that was behind the truck, decided to come around it instead of waiting for him to turn & nailed Jim's Jeep. The police officer gave Jim a ticket because he said that he had to issue one to someone, so he picked Jim! ARGH! What kind of crap is that??? But yep, we'll be fighting the ticket in court! Wish us luck cause it looks like we're going to need lots of it right now!
We won't find out until Tuesday whether or not the Jeep can be repaired. If they end up totalling it, I know that whatever they pay won't pay off the Jeep as we still owe too much on it :(
We're going to need lots & lots of prayers right now! Jim will be calling a lawyer tomorrow to see where we go from here. The lady that hit him told the witness that she was running late for work & the speed limit on this road is 40 mph, but from the looks of this damage, I would say she was going a LOT faster than that!
Both of the airbags in the Jeep deployed, which we thought was pretty strange. Why would the passenger side airbag go off if she hit him on the driver's side? Maybe more proof that she was going too fast?
Here is her car. I'm just thankful that no one was hurt in the accident! Jim's new glasses that he just got last week were bent from the airbag going off, but it could have been a LOT worse!
Thank-you God for watching over my husband!
