Eli & I saw a car accident on our way to the grocery-a delivery truck hit an SUV and rolled it. It was very scary and if we had been 20 seconds earlier on our way to the grocery that delivery truck would have hit us. Right on the side where Jesse and Eli sit. After I got off the phone with 911 I had to just sit a minute and regain myself. I mean, what if something happened to my boys? I start to cry just thinking about it. We said a prayer for everyone in the accident and went on. There were no serious injuries-the delivery driver jumped out right away and ran over to the SUV and the guy in the SUV crawled out the passenger side window with a bloody nose. It could have been so, so much worse!
We only saw the accident from after the impact so we weren't good witnesses and there were 2 other cars stopped that had seen the whole thing so they stayed. What I did realize though is that while I reacted quickly (I was going for my phone almost instantly) I would be a terrible witness. I think the SUV rolled, but I really don't know, and I saw it, I know I did. Eli said it rolled, he said he saw it too. Based on the damage I'm sure it did, we went back that way after we got groceries and they were just hooking it up to the tow truck. The roof was smashed in and it would have rolled to have that kind of damage.
Eli was also very impressed that I called 911. I told him, "Well, it was an emergency!" He said it was a good thing I had gotten my phone. I had been charging it and went back for it before we left "just in case we need it". Maybe that took about an extra 20 seconds. God is good my friends, God is good!
