Fo... Show morer everyone who didn't know I was in a car wreck on Tuesday. Here are some pics of the grand event.
I was dring up davis hill on my way to pick up my girl to run an errand. I've already had more then enough closcalls with the local kids in the area playing in the streets. Especially now that its nice and sunny out side. On this particular afternoon it was very sunny and in the high 70s. We were the only two
vehiclas on the road. I was about three car lengths behind this white 15 foot truck when he started to slow down next to the playground across an uncontrolled intersection. I couldn't see around him so I came to a full stop before the
intersection and treated it like a 4 way stop untill the truck infront of me decided what he was going to do. I guess he realized he'd gone the wrong way and bagan to back up into the intersection. I always drive with my lights on so I was sure this guy could see me and knew I was across the intersection from him as he began to backup toward me. Slowly he crept toward me so I figured he was going to back up around the corner either to my left or my right so I was in no hurry so waisted patiently for the guy to decide what he wanted to do. I don't know why he did it but he floored it in reverse and before a had a chance to do anything but honk my horn at him
and close my eyes and yell S#%@!!!.
As you can see from the pics my car was fused to the truck. It took 3 hours to try and separate them. 1st they tried to lift my car up into the air at a 45 degree angle and pull it free but no dice then they tried to twist and pull my car while still in midair off the truck but it only drug the truck back and forth a few feet. And when they tried from the truck's side to pull and separate the truck it merely dragged my car a few feet in the other direction. All you could hear was the
crunching and crackling of my front end being destroyed. It made me sick to my stomach I had to sit down. Finally they got a fork lift to lift up my car and twist it loose. I wish I
had a video camera with me.
And the sweet part wasn't even the accident. This contractor was pulled over in McChord AFB for reckless driving and his lisence was suspeneded last Saturday! And the only reason he got on post here was because he had a contractors ID.
