Haven't been posting because I got into a car crash on Thursday. Didn't have my camera, or I would have blogged the damage.
For those who know the area, I was driving North on 441 from Tallulah Falls. Had a green light at the intersection with Wal-Mart. 3 cars traveling South from Clayton all HAD to get to WalMart immediately and turned left into my path even though they had no turn arrow. I was unable to miss the last car. Luckily there was a police officer right there who saw the whole thing.
It seems likely that my car will be totalled, still waiting on the final word.
I have a back injury that is painful. Have seen the doctor twice so far and been sent for xrays. Waiting for the results. Doctor wants me to get physical therapy, too.
What amazes me is that the other driver was not ticketed, even though the police report clearly shows him at fault. My car ran right into the passenger side rear door, where a teenage girl was sitting (she was OK). I am flabbergasted that the other driver can endanger lives with reckless driving, and receive no ticket. The driver was not the owner, or the insured. So he gets off scott free.
Meanwhile, I am in pain, missed work, and will have to shell out big bucks and time to get another vehicle. I had a paid off, dependable car.
When I asked at the Sheriff's office why someone can cause a crash involving injury and loss of property and get no ticket, all I got was a stare.
