Car Wreck

Well, I'd been having fun in Atlanta. Now things have gotten interesting.

I was visiting my mom at her job close to downtown Atlanta today. For some reason she wanted to show me off. LOL I wanted to see where she worked. I left there just after 230. I ran down, grabbed 75S to 20W and was heading back to the house.

I was in the next to last left lane. The cars in the far left lane began to slow down quick. Traffic was there, but it wasn't horrible yet. Everyone was moving at a steady clip, so I knew something was up. The third car had to slam on their brakes to stop. I could see the smoke coming out from the car it was stopping so hard. (A lot of this happens so fast I'm amazed I can break it back down.) I could see they were having a hard time controlling the car. I looked back to see if I could move over to the right. There was a break and I started to change lanes. About that time the other car hit me.

Luckily, traffic wasn't too bad. The wreck ended up being just us two cars. It could have been a LOT worse. We were lucky. Neither of us were hurt. The damage to the car isn't too bad. It is still drivable. Thankfully! Especially since I am supposed to head back to Missouri tomorrow. My hubcap got ripped off. You can still see part of it hanging on to the tire.
