So first as a reference,
I was the driver of the clipped car that is referenced in those articles. I was just driving home from work when a car just came out of no where and it clipped me pretty good. Car went sailing into a parked car and then ended up into a tree. Got out of the car luckily unscathed, dialled 911, and ran towards the car to see if anyone needed any assistance (I work in the medical field so I know what I can do). Unfortunately I got to the scene and I could already see that there were no signs of life from the occupants.
Had I gone into that intersection 1 second sooner I would of been T boned and would have been in a lot worse shape or worse... dead.
I am doing well physically, but the whole incident has left me with a bad experience. I hope I will manage. Just thought I should share the story.
Fact of the matter is, reports were saying speed and alcohol were a factor, they ran a stop, clipped me, hit a parked car and then the tree.
I'm just thankful to be alive and kicking.
I'm also posting the picture of the aftermath of my car.
