A hit and run!

Yes, as the title indicates I was a victim of a hit and run crime this evening. Being the good student I am, I attended my Organic Chemistry class for the first time this week. Steph and I carpooled today, and it was my turn to drive. After being let out late after the most ridiculous chemistry lecture ever (the professor kept messing up the reaction sequence for vitamin D) we were heading home in the usual stop and go traffic on Foothill. As I was sitting stopped in the traffic just south of Wakara Way, I happened to glance in my rear view mirror and noticed a white Lincoln driving unusually fast heading straight for us, At the last moment the Lincoln swerved, but not in time. According to Steph I uttered a bad word just moments before she smashed into the back of my car. ( I promised Preston that I wouldn't write what it was) I pulled into the median in the road and the Lincoln came up next to us and I stared into the face of an older woman. 93 to be exact. Who after speaking with the cop this evening apparently shares my birthday, aside from the fact that she was born in 1914! She pulled into the median in front of us. However, instead of stopping she drove forward at snails pace, until she was out of site. As I was on the phone with my dad, I looked up to see her gone! I had been a victim of a hit and run. Steph smarter than I am had taken down the license plate number. I reported it to 911, and they dispatched an officer to go to the alleged womans house to see if they could find her car with the damage that I had mentioned they would find. To top it off they dispatched a crime scene investigation vehicle to take pictures of my car and the accident. An hour and a half later, I was finally able to head home. So much for going to class huh? I had forgotten that Steph had never been in car accident before, I am just glad that her first was a hit and run :-)

OMGosh! Wow! I'm glad you're both ok. Did they ever catch the old lady? How much damage did it do to your car? I've never been in a hit and run, but I have been hit by a drunk driver! Car accidents suck. But at least you're ok!
