This week has not started out well! DH and I got into a car accident this afternoon. He was getting ready to make a left hand turn onto the highway. He was over the line and the light was yellow, so he had to move or he'd be blocking traffic. The other driver was across the street and pulled out of a parking lot and got into the far lane. Then she made a lane change and kept on coming and plowed into us. DH hit the brakes and thank the Goddess he did, or else the other car would have hit the passenger side of our car, where I was sitting. The air bags didn't deploy and no one was injured. The police officer said that he believed that technically the other driver was at fault, but state law says that if a driver is making a left hand turn and is in an accident, then it's that driver's fault. So DH has a court date next month and if he pleads guilty some of the fines will be reduced.
The police officer saw that DH and I were stranded there so he offered us a ride and he took us to Enterprise so that we could rent a car, since DH needs to go to classes this week. After we rented the car we went to our insurance agent and got the paperwork filed. The insurance adjuster will call us within 24 hours. I really hope that the car can be fixed.
