  • Long Night

    So I usually wake up around 1am to go to work. Well tonight around 11:30, I was awakened by the scream of locked up brakes. I think to myself, "self, somebody's gonna be in a world of hurt" It seems like the crash takes forever to come, but it does finally, and it's a doozy. But the problem is, it is accompanied by my bed shaking. Ohh Sh*t! I'm calling 911 as I hit the front door but as I open it, I see flashing lights and cops with guns out walking towards my yard. The car that was parked in my circle drive is up on my stoop, and someones caprice wagon is head-on into my house, next to the stoop. He had his brakes locked for at least 60 yards. And he lived for the ambulance ride. The police say they saw him blow a red light and turned to follow him (said they were up to 80 trying to catch up) but they weren't in a pursuit yet when my house got in the way. Floor is buckled in the hall, and some drywall is opened up in the basement, but really the damage isn't as bad as I thought. And the jeep was missed completely. I'd post up some pics but my brother messed with my computer and I lost my photobucket password, so that will have to wait until I find it.

              Wow.
              Glad you and your family is okay, and your Jeep is unhurt... it would be harder to steal good parts off it if it were all mangled!

                Hmmmmm. You know, I never really saw the responsible party. It could well have been a pack of thieving kimbies. Just to short to see over the dash to know when to stop. Guess I'll have to start sleeping w/ the potato gun loaded. (and who knew, Kimbies have to carry liability, too) Just got finished picking up most of the shards, but some of it is so small. I'll never be able to wander out barefoot for my paper again.

                  Man, that really sucks... that's one of life's little joys, too.
                  Hope everything gets back to as close to normal as possible soon.

                    Sorry to hear about it, good thing you weren't out sitting on your front porch at the time. Good luck with the clean-up/insurance.

                    That's not likely, and a lot of insurance companies won't pay out if you are doing something illegal ( at least not to the insured party, but maybe to a 3rd party?).

                        It is a simple thing.
                        If they were in pursuit then they would be responsible.
                        So if they say they were not in pursuit then they are not responsible.
                        I do not see where you cannot understand this. Are you form another country? Or government knows all, you should be aware of that by now.

                          They may have been just struggling to keep him in sight at 80 mph... did you ever consider he might have been doing over a hundred? Think about the long skid marks... any faster, and the FAA would have had to be involved!

                            Sorry to hear, glad to hear that the jeep was ok. I know what you were going through when you heard the skreeching tires, I went through the same thing a few months ago.

                            A kid flying down my street sad that someone pulled out in front of him, he lost control and slammed right into my 03' Malibu that was parked out front of my house.
                            On a good note, my 07' JK was parked out front the night before...

                              If a policeman breaks the speed limit he best be in pursuit. Otherwise he is nothing more than a person breaking the law.
