It's Been Six Years...

My husband was on his way to work Wednesday night and another driver crossed  the center line and clipped his side mirror. They didn't even slow down. When he called to tell me, it was too dark to really assess the damage and I'm sure his adrenaline was racing.

To say that I'm mad doesn't even begin to cover it....

By the light of day, it's not as bad as it first seemed. The side mirror is toast, but it's a piece that can be unbolted and we can order a replacement online which will cost less than our insurance deductible. 

It could have been so much worse. 

But whoever hit him and kept going doesn't know that it wasn't worse. 

It's also a little spooky that it was six years almost to the day of his collision with the drunk driver, only a few miles down the same stretch of highway.

Don't drink and drive and for God's sake, if you hit another car on the highway, STOP. (I'm pretty sure I didn't have to tell any of you those two things.)

I feel for you and your husband. We were hit by a drunk driver once, totaled our new Dodge Caravan, but we were ok (although lying on our sides held in by seatbelts).
I am glad that your husband wasn't injured! Everyday I ask God for safety in my driving. Every. Day.

Praise God it was only the mirror! I went back and read what happened six years ago. Wow! Definitely don't drink or text and drive! There are so many distracted drivers these days. We're only a phone call away from our lives changing forever. Be safe.
