    Arrow A man lost control of his car & almost wiped me out!

    I was laying in bed this morning and my aide & I heard a loud banging noise and then smoke started coming in the doors & windows! She looked out & screamed there's been a wreck & the car's smoking! She started calling 911 & running out to give help. He almost ran into the bldg I live in! He wiped out a tree and started... rolling & was maybe 15' from my place! He had to be going 60-70 mph. He traveled a 50' before he stopped after wiping out the tree! My sister's bldg I live in is maybe 75' to 100' off the road. You'd think I'd be safe from cars hitting me.
    He got out with his head bleeding but refused the ambulance. I was praying! I was scared someone was hurt bad & the bldg. was going to catch fire.
    Not sure why but my aide said he had no driver's license & no insurance & got in no trouble.

    Bloody hell! That must have been terrifying, Mona!
    I'm so pleased you were physically unharmed!

    How did the driver get away with having no licence or insurance though? I'm baffled.

    You can never be far enough from the road when the vehicle is speeding. Wow Mona, I am glad you are okay and your home is okay.

    If he had no license or insurance, then he should be in trouble.

    Good Grief Mona!
    Remember when you said you felt like staying home a while after you were nearly in that accident?
    At least no one was hurt. I'd be shook up too.

    Thanks Keps, T, and Linda. I'm gonna call the police tomorrow & ask why he didn't get a ticket or anything.

    T. it's 65 mph in front of my place. So not sure he was speeding.

    The smoke had me freaked out the most.
    You know where I lived before. Don't want to go back.

    Linda I remember. I'm getting antsy. Not safe in the van or at home.

    I think you have the right to feel paranoid. I would also follow up on why te guy had no license or insurance and got no ticket. Something wrong there. Sometimes they give the ticket later if the address that he gave isw the correct one that is.
