Driving Sucks When…

By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 8:06 pm

Driving sucks when you are minding your own business driving home (to church directly from work, actually) and an eighteen-wheeler attempts to occupy the same space as your Corolla, causing you to be spun across the left lane and into the median of a four-lane divided highway, which, by the Grace of God, was very muddy, and hence slowed my wayward Corolla sufficiently before I entered southbound traffic.

Yes, I would attest, that that is definitely when driving sucks.

And to make it extra-special sucky, the truck driver in question had been drinking (just “two beers” of course, causing one of the police officers to ponder to me at one point as to the size of said beverages). The trucker’s exact fate was unknown as he waited in the back of the patrol car after I had concluded my business at the scene.

And yes, I’m fine, thank the Lord. Although I suspect I will be quite sore in the morning.

And, ironically, we finally settled all the insurance issue on the van just yesterday. We have been married for 14.5 years and for the first 14+ no auto accidents, and now two (neither our fault) since October 1st.

    1. Glad you’re OK. Getting up close and personal with a big truck or the median is way un-fun. Getting up close and personal with both is even less so!

    2. Glad you’re ok. That the liability is clear is a bonus. Take some advil or tylenol tonight. It will help with tomorrow, believe me, I’ve been there. Take it easy the next couple of days, too.

    3. Jiminy Christmas – glad to hear you came out in one piece.

      I hope they took a blood test on the driver and yank his license (for a start).

    4. ugh. horrifying!!
      glad you’re ok.
      thank God.

    5. Two accidents, neither your fault, since October 1? Not to spread paranoia, but do you happen to have a political bumper sticker on your car(s)?

    6. That’s a little too close for comfort. Glad to hear that you’re okay!

      Comment by Greg — Wednesday, January 12, 2023 @ 11:30 pm

    7. Glad you’re safe. When will these silly drivers we share the road with ever learn that two objects should never occupy the same space at the same time?

    8. Yikes! I’ll loudly join the chorus of glad you’re okays.

      Comment by Jay — Thursday, January 13, 2023 @ 7:08 am

    9. Yikes. Glad to hear you’re alright. As you know, essentially the same thing happened to me a few years ago in my first Contour. No fun, indeed.

    10. Man, as someone who also drives a corolla, I shudder to think about that experience. Glad you’re okay and the Lord was watching out for you.

      A truck driver drinking! Man!

    11. Glad to know you’re safe. One of my co-workers and his wife were on the losing end of a truck on Christmas Eve. It was a sad Christmas for their families. I’ll be praying for justice, swift healing for you, and a quick resolution of your insurance dealings.
