Boom today. Not tomorrow.

Having grown up across the street from a factory’s outlet drive where car crashes were pretty common–I could tell from the sound of the crunch what make and model got hit–you’d think I wouldn’t be surprised by a screech and a boom.

Except this time, the screech was twenty feet away on the street, and the boom was ten feet away on my front porch. No one was hurt. The driver must have been drunk and/or stoned and/or intensely stupid. He just got out of the car, looked at it funny like he was sure this was his regular parking space, and wandered away.

A few (large) pictures are here, here, here, here (in this image, the window on the left right over the hood is where I was sitting), here, here and here.

      Nope. Startled half out of my chair is all. The street is a 25mph zone, and he definitely tried to stop (heard the tires squealing), and the bushes slowed him down, too. There’s a nice crumple in the front of his car, tho. The porch is brick and concrete. The car was old and cheap. Guess who won? :)

        Well. You be taking care of yourself. I know how tricksy those “car” things can be. *shudders at the bright headlights* ;)
