illustration Friday - immovable

This was several years ago. I totaled my Audi TT when a van plowed into me from behind doing about 60 on Woodall Rogers in Dallas during rush hour. I was at a complete stop. I plowed into the car in front of me, and it plowed into the car in front of them. Cars are not immovable by the way. And thank goodness for airbags.

  2. Nice picture of a bad traffic jam! I got backended in a tiny car once by a 32 ton truck. I'd stopped at a pedestrian crossing; the guy got out of his truck and said to a guy walking by, "I thought she would run the light". The guy was an off duty policeman. Some dumb truck driver.

  4. Too close to home Willie. My daughter was hit head-on by a drunk driver right after Thanksgiving last year. She broke most every bone from her pelvis to her toes. Still in a wheelchair. However the prognosis is good. I hope you are okay. Blessings brother.

    I just read your post again and see this happened a several years ago.

    BTW. Can't seem to go anywhere without meeting someone who knows you. Met Paul Black at Jeff Baker's birthday party last weekend which was in NJ about ten miles from Easton PA where we live.

  5. I had that happen to me 11 years ago. My car got shoved underneath the car in front of me and the Cadillac that hit me went underneath my car.. we looked like toppled dominos. To this day my heart stops beating when I see a car pulling up speedily behind me..
