I’ve never been involved in an auto accident. In 37 years of driving.
Not that I shouldn’t have been. Truth is, in my late teens, the way I was driving, I was due…
But still, I’ve been spared. Until last night.
Taking the “fam” to an IMAX theater, I was stuck in traffic on I-95 South.
Left-lane, stopped. Totally.
Then, in the rear-view mirror, I saw the headlights, thinking, “There’s no way he can sto…”
Wham! Into me, and I following suit into a Volvo.
Apologetic, the 22 year old driver said, “I’m sorry. I wasn’t looking.”
Yes. Apparently not. At least, not at me, or the road.
Good thing we weren’t killed.
I too have taken my eyes off the road. You know, “but for the grace of God…”
Still, it is a gamble. Especially when you’re commandeering a 3ooo lb. projectile on wheels.
