my light was green.
before i could think i saw his face, took my foot off the gas pedal, and thought of nola.
our cars slammed together with a crunch i saw my airbag come out in slow motion as i was thrust forward into my steering wheel and i heard her cry.
everything stopped, i smelled oil and smoke.
i got out of the car as fast as i could and ran to my baby.
she smiled when she saw me.
everything was ok.
on the way to pick up arabella from preschool today i got in a car accident. i was driving east on agoura rd and the car i ran into was turning to their left across my lane. they were supposed to yield to me, instead they turned when i was almost already in the intersection and then stopped in front of me.
i had a witness, thank god, a sweet lady who knew my light was green and knew they stopped in front of me, she called the police for me. the police were very sweet and took care of everything. they gave him a citation and called the fire department to make sure nola was ok.
our car is most likely totalled, but we will see.
luckily it was the other persons fault but whether they deem it theirs or ours we have a small deductible and gap insurance.
i'm so so so thankful that nola is ok. my nose, neck and back hurt but i'm great.
our car... sad.
