Car Crash

I just witnessed a car get smoked by another less than 5 minutes ago.

I don't know quite how it happened, but a truck was turning left and a car was going straight (heading towards each other). I assume that the truck cut her (the car) off, because he ripped off the right front of her car. The windshield washer fluid tank was hanging like a florescent christmas ornament. The girl was okay, she was on her cell phone instantly. The guy (in the truck) pulled over. Traffic stopped in this major intersection just in front of the University and people started streaming to help.

That's one thing I have to commend about my little city: it's small enough that people help you on their lunch hour.

Since there was nothing I could do, I followed the 2 cars ahead of me and drove home (since there was room to make a right hand turn from the profile view I had). More than enough witnesses as well. And no one appeared hurt (and, like I said before, many people came running).

So, drilled into my head, yet again: Vehicles are dangerous things. Be careful out there.
