Got a good fright today.
After waiting for the light to turn green at the intersection just outside my work... just as the car in front of me started to pull out... a Cadillac that should have stopped for the red light sails through the intersection at a pretty good speed and did a direct hit on an SUV pulling out in the opposite direction.
To top it off, the Caddy didn't stop. He sped off from the accident scene. Later the cops found him in the parking lot near the building where I work... apparently disoriented from the accident.
Luckily, the driver managed to avoid a direct t-bone hit by about two feet. So he destroyed the entire front end of the SUV he hit. Luckily, the lady he hit seemed to be OK, even though a bunch of airbags deployed.
I'm really amazed at this. This driver not only missed the red light, but he didn't take a cue from the dozens of cars that were already stopped at the light.
Sometimes I have to wonder who is driving these vehicles and -- even at 8:00 am -- what kind of shape they might be in.
