Yesterday was an interesting day. And by that I mean... my former roomie and best friend Heather (the one who is leaving me shortly to travel the world) was in a car accident! Gah! She is ok, but boy is she incredibly lucky.
She was on her way to work yesterday morning and we have been having some really windy days. As you get closer to the mountains, the wind gets worse... and thats what caused one of those bright orange construction barrels to get blown out onto the road. Heather swerved to avoid it (yes, she should have hit it, but thats never your first reaction). Then she swerved back into her lane because she hadn't checked the middle lane before swerving... but all the swerving made her lose control of the car and it flipped! Holy shite! She ended up on the right shoulder of the road and got out of the car. The only injuries she suffered were a small cut on her head and a small cut on her thumb. Seriously. Lucky. Thankfully.
We went to clean out the car yesterday, since its most likely (I meant certainly) totaled. This is what I found:
The almost undamaged side of the car
the totally blown out back windshield and trunk that won't close
squished tire and Wall-E light (it sticks out :))
Scraped and squished driver's side
So, like I said, she is fine and totally lucky. She has a few staples in her head where she cut it. And thats it. I totally woke up a few times in the middle of the night to make sure she was still breathing (she is staying with me until she leaves). Obviously she was fine... stiff and sore this morning. Umm... yea, no more car accidents Heather!
