Crash...

A little after 7:00 Monday night Dave headed to Fricano's to meet Mark and Evan for pizza. He doesn't go nearly as often as he used to, nor does he see the guys as much so I know he enjoys catching up with them. By 7:20 my phone was ringing and he asked how I was doing and I found that a little strange...he had just left! Then he said "we're going to need to make an insurance claim". I asked if he had been in an accident and he conformed he had. I quickly asked if everyone was alright and thankfully they were. He was just about to the parking lot off 7th Street when a car pulled out in front of him from Central. Most of the damage is to the front corner, bumper and grill of his truck but there are a lot of little things that are going to need to be fixed. Thank goodness for insurance. Dave feels awful for the poor kid that hit him. He had only turned 16 the day before and it was his FIRST time driving without his parents! The kid was so nervous and shaken up when it happened that he forgot to put his car is gear causing it to move foward and hit the back end of Dave's truck after they had both come to a stop. It's just a truck and it can be fixed, we're just glad nobody was hurt!

OH MY WORD!!! I DIDNT KNOW THAT!!! Poor kid. I mean the 16 year old. That sucks! As does it suck for Dave and all being his baby. Oh well. At least everyone was ok! I do recall a month after getting my license getting pulled over for doing 87 in a 70. Whoops! Poor guy! I know how he feels!

Rotten luck for the young guy. Glad nothing worse happened. All's well that ends well, I guess!With this crazy weather it could happen to anyone!
