    Bad Crash

    I've had a bad bad day.

    On my way to work this morning, in the rain, a car rear ended me on the interstate. He took off so it's a hit and run.

    My car was totaled (the trunk was in the back seat) ick.

    I spent most of 8 hours in the ER (when in Atlanta, don't go to Grady if you can avoid it. I couldn't). Good news is that, somehow, nothing was broken. I feel like I went one on one with Tyson in his prime.

    Only good news is I get to have a vicodin weekend.

    Glad to hear you're going to be okay. I assume you didn't get a license plate, etc?

    no, I'm not even sure what the make/model was. I THINK it was something like a light color land cruiser, but I dunno.

    I'm glad I'm with a good insurance company.

    Wow Phil. I'm glad you're OK. You're in my prayers. It's amazing a guy can rear end you, which totals your car, yet is able to drive away (escape).

    Was he driving one of these?

    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    Any witnesses stop? Gotta believe someone else on the highway saw it happen and might have seen the car. Also, some sections of highway are video monitored for traffic reports.

    Hopefully the police can get a lead on it. Glad you are ok.

    Really glad to hear you're ok.

    Having been in a bad car accident myself, I can relate and I feel your pain, literally and figuratively.

    I'm amazed his car was driveable after totalling your ride.

    Glad you're okay Raisor. Get plenty of rest and take it easy. Spend a quiet weekend at home, using your Sabremetric Jujitsu to educate your posse about the importance of SLG. and OBP.

    Sorry to hear of your misfortune, Phil, but glad you are allright. Feel like you just played in an NFL game?

    gah!

    Just did some figuring, and I'm going to be about a grand upside down on the car.

    I hope they find punk ass that did this to me.
