Hit and run

Charlene and the kids were rear-ended yesterday by a black Mercedes SUV. The driver took off instead of pulling over, which wasn’t a very smart move. Charlene got the license plate and we reported the collision to the police and our insurance company.

The plate matched an address not far from here. The officer rhymed off the charges that could be laid against this person – failure to remain, careless driving, failure to report an accident. I checked out the points and it’s enough for her license to be suspended. Would have been much less if she had remained at the scene.

When I picked Charlene up at the doctor’s today, I pulled in beside – a black Mercedes SUV. The same one. It’s a small world. Who knows when we’ll run into each other again. Maybe not as literally this time.
