If you have followed this blog for awhile, you’ll recall that my youngest son had a hard time since his dad died last April. He’s been in and out of here ( living-wise ) and I had a lot of rearranging to do when he’d moved in as the spare room was my catch-all room, including sewing supplies.
Within the last two months he found an apartment and moved out and was doing well.
In between some of this :
On Christmas Eve, at a local Walmart-oriented shopping mall…an SUV had stopped suddenly ahead of him and his little car plowed in to it and it was totaled. ( SUV? No Damage )
After that he and his friends shopped around and found a great bargain….a 2002 Acura. ANOTHER little car, though.
This baby was loaded with ‘after market’ items….new transmission, engine, re-done interior, some fancy tablet thing that had a screen and controlled the heating …and on and on. We got it for a song.
St. Pat’s weekend….my son came over with Koopa to spend the night. He’d go to a local bar or party or whatever and leave Koopa here with me, and then crash on the couch under a couple of quilts when he came home.
Here’s Koopa taken with my cell phone ( still an iPhone 3 lol :)
And here’s Koopa after some DRUNK DRIVER ( 2x over the limit according to the police report ) plowed in to my son’s car on the highway.
Koopa and my son are ok but this was in the afternoon! When my son went to the local bar last night he was back here by 11:00…he said that people there were so drunk and loud he had to leave because they’d been “day drinking’ for St. Pat’s since the morning !
If this guy was 2x over the limit when he plowed into my son’s car in the afternoon, the next day, it is the same sort of situation.
At this point we don’t know if his insurance has full coverage or what yet ( the State police have all the info ) but my son will most likely never get the full worth of this car. In the end though, thank God that he and Koopa are ok.
It’s just surreal. A nice family relaxing weekend and then a car crash….one of those “you just never know”situations but I thank God that this was not worse. Hold your loved ones tightly! And don’t drink and drive!
