I was driving home after picking up Aidan from school when out of no where this car comes flying up the lane next to me, hits a pothole and then bounces off it into my car! It appears that her mirror is what scrapped my car. There doesn’t seem to be any other damage on her car, expect on her mirror. Thank goodness that it was just the mirror that hit my car. It could have been much worse. The kids didn’t even realize we had been hit and don’t seem to be at all fazed by it. I am a bit shaken up, but otherwise I’m fine.
The other driver was fairly young, I’m guessing in her early 20’s. I guess I should have noted the birthday on her driver’s license. She was all apologetic about the accident. She said she was sorry and that she her car took an unexpected bounce out of the hole. She also mentioned something about this being the last time she tries to run out for lunch during her break at work, so it appears that is why she was traveling so fast.
I was trying to think if there was anything at all I could have done to avoid having her hit me, but can’t come up with anything. I was in my lane, traveling at the speedlimit. She came up out of no where from behind me and bounced into my car before I even knew she was back there.
