Car Wreck; It\'s a neighborhood event I see this car wreck over by my mom's friend's house as I'm leaving to go somewhere. So I stop by (like half the people in the neighborhood crowded around) to see. I see a new SUV totaled by a late '70s lifted Chevy shortbed which wasn't looking too straight either. The SUV was right up against our friend's fence, but no damage to their yard, cops were there, fire truck, ambulance... so I go on my way. I get a call later, only to find out that the new Toyota SUV was my mom's friend who lived there who got hit in front of her own house by the shortbed which was speeding (about 80mph). The drunk driver of the truck and one passenger ran off on foot away from the scene, and cops were searching all around our neighborhood for them. Dumb me didn't even stay long enough to realize it was her that got hit, cause she was still in her car in shock. I talked with her husband even, and walked in their yard, and he didn't even know it was her that got hit when I was there. Why is it always that the brand new rigs get totaled? My mom and her and others went to the hopital and she checked out ok. I was also eyeing the shortbed for parts when I saw it... thinking, I wonder if the cops would let me tow it off if I said I was the towing company. Then, there was the mystery car, also wrecked, 2 blocks north from the scene, that cops were around also. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif Nothing like another night of action in my neighborhood. Sorry, no pics. It was dark, and by the time I got back from the valley picking up a tranny/T-case from Fordeater, everything was towed off and cleared.
