I got rear ended tonight.
My first knowledge of this was my head slamming against the headrest.
The driver decided to drive away.
I chased him around the apartment complex nearby, trying frantically to find my phone.
When I found the phone, I dialed 911, and then wondered why it wasn't ringing.
I hit 'send', and even before the 911 person finished saying 911, I said 'Take this number down' and gave her the plate number.
After that, I honked the horn, hoping the driver would stop.
I couldn't tell if it was a guy or a girl, but that caused them to speed up and jump a grass median.
I jumped the grass median, too.
In my car, of course.
I stayed with him for about 3 minutes longer, then he almost hit another car, which I decided not to do.
I lost him.
At this point, I lost my cool and the waterworks started for the next hour.
He might get away scott free, unless he fesses up to hitting me.

I'm fine, except my neck is sore. I'm going to soak it and use the heating pad and see if it's not just due to stress. Otherwise, I guess I'm going into the doctor tomorrow.

The car's fine too, mostly. The hardy Saturn bumper has two holes in it, but the glass on the bumper was all the other person's, and I saw his bumper was hanging down in the front.

This is not what I needed tonight.

Current Mood: ow.

O girl, I'm so sorry.

I also got hit by 2 cars tonight while I was walking! I was on a walk sign, going across in the rain, and 2 cars swooped around the corner and they both almost hit me, one left on green and the other right on red, and I felt the woosh! What the hell, I was so freaked.

Was it a night for assholes?!

I'm so sorry.

thank you, sweetie.

I'm sorry to hear about your asshole incident, too!

I'm more upset right now that the guy might get away with it, and he probably doesn't have insurance which is why he ran, so my insurance rates will go up dealing with this.

And the fact that he'll get off scot-free. sigh.

Although, I did want to go to sleep early, just not from crying my eyes out :)

Did 911 girlie get the plate, though??
maigrey From: maigrey Date: December 12th, 2001 06:57 pm (UTC) (Link)
yes, she did -- she repeated it back to me as I was continuing to follow the guy, then transferred me to the local police department, at which time I couldn't keep up with the guy (and decided not to hit the jeep in front of me), and lost him.

Then I doubt he'll get off without getting in trouble.

I'm sure they'll track him that way.

I like you lots. I'm glad you're OK. Karma will get the moron that drove away.
maigrey From: maigrey Date: December 12th, 2001 07:34 pm (UTC) (Link)

I like you lots too!

and yeah, I hope it'll all work out.

Re: I like you lots too!

Heh..I just noticed that my comment above rhymed. I rock. :)

yikes. i'm sorry!
glad you're all in one piece, though.
physically, anyway.

thank you!

You are a dear!

I hope your kitties didn't attack you too much; I could hear them on the phone! :)

Thanks for the hugs!

I'm so sorry this happened to you and that the rat brain driver decided to take off. Did the police take a police report or anything? Just take care of yourself -- I'm gonna send you an extra special soap with your card full of healing properties and smelly stuff. :)

You are the sweetest!

The police did take a partial police report -- my side, and when they find the guy; if they find the guy, they'll fill out his portion and then mail it to me.

If the guy fesses up, they'll mail me a summons for court and if I want to prosecute the guy, I go into court on that day.

I'm working on Christmas cards tonight -- I was going to do them yesterday, but, well. Anyway, look for yours soon!
apasionado From: apasionado Date: December 12th, 2001 08:42 pm (UTC) (Link)
ohhhhhh no.
i'm SO GLAD you are all right.
how yucky. i'm so sorry.

p.s. your christmas card goes out tomorrow, if it makes you any happier! :)
maigrey From: maigrey Date: December 13th, 2001 07:45 am (UTC) (Link)


I'm okay, but I think I'm going to the doctor today.

And I was going to do christmas cards last night, but, well...

I'll work on them tonight and then you should be getting yours soon as well.

Recovering from heart attack

I'm just glad you're okay. That phone call scared the shit outta me. :)

Hmmm, maybe you'll be getting help with that downpayment on the new hot rod.

Re: Recovering from heart attack

Sorry about the phone call -- I was in hysterical waterworks, but they were stress related rather than ill and injured. I still have to get you your cookie sheets...

See a doctor or something. A friend of mine got minorly rear-ended a few months ago. No biggie, highway traffic was stopped, he stopped, guy behind him stopped a little slower, pulled over, exchanged info, etc.

Two days later he couldn't stand up due to vertigo problems stemming from a concussion. He had blackouts and stuff for a few days. He's better now, but you should be careful...

Re: Yike.

Yeah, I'll probably see a doctor soon -- my neck is still sore, though it's the other side than what was sore last night.

Thanks for the advice, though!

Mmm, soothing tea and bubbles! I did take a bath, but it didn't do a whole lot of good.

My neck is still sore, so I'll probably make an appointment with the doctor after I call the insurance folks.

thanks so much for the kind thoughts, dear! And I like the new userpic!

oh my god, dearie.
I'm really glad your ok & I really hope they track down that idiot jerkish irresponsible asshole & please see a doctor to get everything checked out cause i don't want you rearending someone from you not being all in the right shape from this.
maigrey From: maigrey Date: December 13th, 2001 08:07 am (UTC) (Link)


Thanks, sweetie!

I'm fine, but my neck is sore, so I'll probably be going to the doctor as soon as this is straightened out.

And add me to your IM, woman!

Re: *hug*

I did! I did!
But you don't seem to be on right now (and I wasn't on much yesterday since I had people in my cube)
maigrey From: maigrey Date: December 13th, 2001 11:05 am (UTC) (Link)

Re: *hug*

I'm on now! :) I was having problems with my wireless connection, etc.
From: ladyfirebird Date: December 13th, 2001 05:46 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh my God! I'm glad to know you're (mostly) okay, but...oh, I'm soooooo sorry. *big hug*

I do agree though: if the stiffness doesn't go away sometime today, go ahead and go to a doctor. It can save a lot of grief later.

And we'll all be sending bad karma to the one who thinks he got away...
maigrey From: maigrey Date: December 13th, 2001 08:09 am (UTC) (Link)
It is the doctor for me! You should find me on ICQ when you get home -- I ended up paging CB in the midst of the accident and then called him later. Not a whole lot of juicy news, but it'll distract you from your knee all the same.

From: ladyfirebird Date: December 13th, 2001 01:52 pm (UTC) (Link)
Seeing as there has been a development for me, too...

...it's a date!

(Unless doc says otherwise.)
