A couple days ago I finally saw the police report for the accident I was recently in. Oyyyyyyy, someone is going to have a really bad Christmas. I will give the fella who caused the accident good points for honesty, because I think most people might have withheld some of the following information since nobody pulled over to be a witness.
The fella admitted to driving 70 mph on a two lane road, tailgating, crossing the double yellow lines, and worst of all to be talking on a cell phone when the accident happened. I have a strong hatred of people driving with one hand on the wheel and the other on a cell phone. If I could do a citizens arrest I would.
So beside the fellas car being totaled I imagine he will also loose his insurance because the costs of this accident keeps going up.
I feel no anger towards him. He behaved stupidly, but it wasn't with malicious intent. It was an accident and he owned up to it.
Now, this image may or may not have been an accident. Did someone finally break and say, "I'm tired of Mitchell parking his car in front of our house! I'll show him." And then did the man storm out of his house with the new chainsaw he got for Christmas?
