Car Wreck

I got one of those phone calls you never want to get yesterday afternoon.  Keisha called, crying and very upset.  She was in a car accident.  It was her first wreck.  She pulled out of the high school (where she’s currently student teaching) and looked down for a second to adjust the volume of the radio.  When she looked up, she slammed on her brakes, but she collided with another vehicle that was stopped at a red light.  This vehicle hit another car, and that one slid into another car.  So four cars were involved, and at least two were totaled, Keisha’s and the car in front of her.  Thankfully, nobody was injured.  Keisha’s got a big purple bruise from her seat-belt, but other than that she’s just emotionally shaken up.

My blogging may be absent for the next few days as life is now very, very busy.  I’ll also very likely be traveling on a work trip next week and will likely be away from a computer, but I won’t find out for sure until later this week.  I’ll try to have up something again soon, but I make no promises.

Wish us luck.  Thanks for reading.

Take care, Logan and Keisha!

A car wreck can be a very jarring experience but luckily it sounds like no one got seriously injured.

Oof, car wrecks are always such horribly memorable experiences. I'm glad that no one was injured.

Yuck...that sucks. I fortunately was never behind the wheel for any bad accidents. I was in the passenger seat a time or two. It's never any fun.

Best of luck with everything.

@Everybody: Thanks for the kind wishes. Keisha looks like an abused wife now, but she's getting better.

My how this brings back memories. My daughter is almost 18 now, but her first few months of being 16 seemed filled with auto accidents. She was hit twice in the parking lot of her college within her first few weeks of driving, and a month or so later was in a fender bender that was her fault. Thankfully no one was hurt too bad, except her car. It did shake her up enough that her driving is much, much better.

I hope all is well now and that she has gotten all accidents out of her system forever.

@Carl: I hope they're all out of her system, too. She's confessed to being a much more alert driver since the accident, so let's hope so!
