Car Accident

Hey guys...just wanted to let you know that I was in a pretty crappy car accident today. I'm OK. Some guy failed to yield to me and I hit the side of his huge truck head on with my Jeep Grand Cherokee. Thank God someone who saw the accident stopped and gave his story to the police, because the other driver was trying to act like it wasn't his fault!!! (The policeman verbalized that the other driver was "at fault" per my testimony and the eye-witness account...The other driver received a ticket) I was sitting at a red light and began to accelerate when it turned green! I mean, seriously??!! SO OBVIOUS!! What a joke!

Anywhoo...my neck and lower back are extremely sore. My poor Cherokee is probably totaled. The entire front bumper from tire to tire was pushed back into my engine area. Thank God for my grill guard...it took the biggest hit and kept the car from caving inward any further. Tons of yellowish fluid was streaming from the Jeep. (which the estimator told me was usually an indication of a totaled vehicle...awesome) We are months away from having it totally paid off! ughhh! We LOVE that Jeep and planned on riding it until the wheels fall off. (HA! I guess they almost did today!) Oh, and my ($200+) iPod that was in my car transistor thingy flew out of the electrical socket on impact and will not work at all...That just adds to my frustration. So, I guess please keep me and Joe in your prayers. I'll keep you updated.
