(Asshole school bus driver won't pull over for me. Other assholes clogging up the lanes. I drive on the right for another 20 yards. When I can see the cops' blue lights & the ambulance I give up & park. Get out of the car & start running towards the wreck.)
I’m one of the first on scene, cop cars flashing, ambulance flashing, car on its side. Rescue truck not there yet.
Jus as I realize what's up & say something like "Holy Jesus Fuck", Chief appears before me, impeding my progress, looking me in the eye like I'm some kind of felon.
The car’s my wife's car, and the person trapped inside is my 27 year old daughter.
That was kind of an upsetting development.
Chief is checking me out, making sure I'm cool before he allows me to approach rescue scene, my daughter trapped in a car on its side.
During the 15 minute rescue I held her hand (the car was up on its side) and told her she was OK. She was sobbing & terrified, afraid she had killed somebody.
Looks like she’s going to be OK. Just bruises. They’re overnighting her in the hospital to keep an eye on her.
My wife’s car is out of commission.
You can imagine all the emotional stuff that happened over the next two hours, my ride to the hospital, calling Dear Wife, etc, etc.
I'm not going to mention the severe & newly diagnosed medical condition that was, in all likelihood, a contributing factor to the accident. Younger Daughter has lost all memory of the time before & during the accident, so we'll likely never know.
Trauma today was all the fucking assholes on the Facebook group "Islanders Talk" speculating that the accident was cause by her texting (Wrong. Her phone was home on the kitchen counter when the accident occurred.) And that she got off with only a civil citation & not a criminal one because her father's a firefighter. Lucky him.
So that got her a bit upset.
But she knows assholes gonna be assholes.
It's late & I can't say any more now. She spent one night in MV hospital with concussive symptoms but is hone & getting better now.
