Frustrating!

The accident scene. We were traveling in the direction of the blue car and the other car was turning left!
Our poor hood! The grill was cracked!


Their car!

Last night Tyler and I were going out to dinner to celebrate our 4 year anniversary. We wanted to celebrate this week because Tyler will be in school on our real anniversary! So we dropped Makenna off at his mom's house and we headed out to dinner. Unfortunately someone decided to put a dent in our evening....literally!
We were driving on a 3 lane road in the center lane going south. The left lane got backed up because soemone was trying to turn left. There was a man and a woman driving north and trying to turn left as well. Because our left lane was backed up the couple did not see us coming. We were only going about 35mph because that was the speed limit. But that car pulled right out in front of us and there was nothing we could do but hang on. We totally t-boned them. It scared me to death. I started screaming and then started crying. Our reservations for dinner were at 5:00 and the accident happened at 4:50. Everyone involved in the accident was okay. I am a little sore today though. I was so shaken up I didn't even want to get out of the car to see the damage. I saw the damage to the other car and was like. "oh great...what does our car look like?" I was happen to discover that our car was in much better shape...at least looks wise. We will see what the mechanic says! Now we just have to deal with the insurance people.
This was my first real car accident and I can definitely say that I am scared to death to get in a car now.

jeni that is the same thing that happened to me in my senior year. i know that totally sucks. luckily everyone is ok and your car dosen't have too much obvious damage. at least it wasn't your fault, that's always good.

I'm so glad you guys are all ok! It looks like your car made it out a lot better than theirs too. It's always so scary to be in a car accident, whether it's a fender-bender or something huge. I'll bet you're glad Makenna wasn't with you, too. Good luck with all the insurance stuff.
