The Night I Heard “Thunder and Crashing Metal”

This is not a typical post but stay with me. 

Two nights ago while sitting in my living room, I heard what can only be described as thunder and crashing metal right outside my house.  After the loud sounds I heard a car horn and I knew something was wrong.  I ran outside and saw a truck partially in my front yard.  A young man stumbled out and I called 911.

The driver was fine but his truck was not.   I was informed by a neighbor had the first sounds we heard was the driver hitting my parked car.  I had parked on the street that day because we had friends and family over visiting and oohing and aahhing over the newest Dolive addition.  I had parked on the street dozens of times before without issue.

The impact was so great that my car was pushed up on to the curb, ripped off my side view mirror and tore up my front end.

While my car is more than likely totaled I can take comfort that no one was hurt.  Things can be replaced but people cannot.

Below are some pictures of the car, may they serve as a reminder of the damage that can happen due to drinking and driving.

 

In Christ,

Rev. Evan
