 My poor car got creamed Sunday morning. I and the other driver walked away unhurt. To make a long story short, I'm on an off ramp and this other car is coming towards me and the door I'm next to. She hits me just front of the front tire, pushes my front end into a cement embankment (with a drop on the other side). And she ends up with the nose of her car embedded in the middle of the side of my car.
To add insult to injury, she asks me if I hit her.

R front bumper, fender & door
Does her reasoning leave something to be desired? Especially when the front of her car is imbedded in the side of my car and I'm going the right direction on the off ramp.
She started out going the right direction on the ramp, but texting while driving sometimes causes problems for others. She spun out. This could have been so much worse.

Look closely at this picture. Any idea of what kind of car hit me? The only damage to her car was that it was scratched up across the nose.
I don't know what is going to happen with this; I don't know what she told the HP and it will take up to eight weeks to get the report.

I am, however, very thankful that neither of us was hurt.
Please don't use your phone or text while driving.
Thank you for coming by. Take care

OMWord! I'm glad you're OK but the nerve of the other driver to ask you if you hit her? She was obviously not paying attention at all. I hope you're not sore or anything....Be Blessed!!!

I'm so glad you're alright, Joyce. I can't believe people can even try texting while driving....but, I can't text and walk. I hope you get this all settled as soon as possible, and that she accepts responsibility for her recklessness.
