To complete my poor daughter's recent run of bad luck, yesterday some idiot ran into her from behind. She was heading through the crossroads in town, going for her and the baby's six week check, and she noticed to her right some incident being attended by fire-cars and police - a RTA of some kind - but she drove past ignoring it, and stopped a few yards further on for a red light. The woman behind however, chose to rubber neck, failed to see Donna - understandable perhaps, as she was only driving an enormous people carrier... and slammed into the back of her crunching up the rear so badly that she can't even open the boot to get the pram out!
The woman was driving a fiesta and her car had to be towed away - a complete write off.
Donna and Tildy are ok, but Don's very shaken, and pretty upset as the baby screamed blue murder and she was obviously terrified she'd been hurt. Fortunately the police came and assured Donz that the accident was entirely the other party's fault, but her car's a total mess, which she's gutted about, she's sore and stiff as hell from the whiplash... And worse than that, she's now haunted by the thought of what might have happened if anyone had still been on the crossing when she was pushed forward from the impact...
Poor kid.... it's just one thing after another for her lately. I really hope this is it now and she has a great Christmas, and a better new year.
But why can't people just be more careful on the roads? Eh?
