My friend was driving me home from a doctor's appointment. She was making a left off the main road to another road coming to my house and as she started making the left a car two cars back tried to pass her. It was so quick, just BAMM and his car spun away. He pulled over to the side of the road we were turning on and looked at us like she had done something wrong. We all pulled into the fire house parking lot. She and I were both stunned, my heart was racing like crazy.
We all got out of the cars (my friend and I and the driver of the other car), they did not speak really except to ask if they were both ok. The EMT from the firehouse had come by on an errand she talked to us for a few minutes to see if we were all right and let me use her cell phone to call my Hubby and let him know what was going on. She also called the state police. Then this man walked over and was just standing there. I asked him if he was from around here. He said he was from WV, but was right behind us and saw the whole thing. Thank G-D! He said he would wait until the police came. I am from the city where alot of people never see anything. It's hard to believe there are actually people like this man around anymore. I just realized I didn't even ask him his name.
The state police came finally and interviewed my friend first. Then walked a little ways away and started to interview this man. I could not hear alot because I have a problem with background noise and there was a fair amount of traffic wizzing by, but I think that man told the officer that he had to avoid something my friend was doing which was dangerous and that is why he tried to pass her. Unbelievable! Finally he interviewed the really nice man who probably had places he had to be but stayed patiently waiting while all of this was going on.
The officer told the other driver "You know you are all fault" I know the other driver said something but could not hear what it was and the officer repeated himself. I asked the officer if he needed any information from me and he went into this long spiel about having a witness, da-da-da-da. That was ok by me because I haven't changed my license over yet. (Yes, I am a real gangster here!)
I have to tell you guys I am still pretty freaked out. My heart is still racing. Yes I took a chill pill. Earlier a large pickup passed us and as my friend put it almost got creamed by a tractor-trailor. Maybe it was a sign? I am praying my friend gets back to work ok. She was driving a company car so I hope she does not get into trouble. I should have asked her to call me when she got back. Hindsight is 20/20. She seemed really worried about that. Thank you to everyone who reads this for listening I feel a little better just writing it down.
