My First Auto Accident
This afternoon, Hannah and I were driving home from picking two 5 gallon buckets of apples out at my dad's when another vehicle struck the front left side of my Escape, which by the way is just barely 2 months old! I was in the middle turning lane, attempting to make the left onto the street that goes into my neighborhood. There was a car sitting on that street, attempting to make a left onto the main street. The driver had a stop sign. He turned, as I was turning, and smacked right in to the front end of my car. No airbags deployed, everyone was okay. Hannah immediately got a little upset, but I was able to calm her down in a matter of minutes. It was pretty scary for me. I immediately panicked, I thought I had done something wrong, something that was going to cost us a lot of money. Once David got there, I calmed down. He was able to tell me that the accident was not my fault. As far as damage goes, I'm pretty lucky; the other driver, not so much. The other car was a Ford Focus, so my Escape parked on their hood. I'm glad no one was hurt, it still sucks though! David managed to pop the bumper back out, all the way. And he also reattached it to the rest of the vehicle. Here's my pretty Escape, not looking so pretty right now!
