I Just Witnessed an Interstate Accident!
After an extremely long day, I was headed home from the radio station and witnessed an accident on I-20/59!
What had happened was...
I was in the right lane between mile markers 73 and 76. Now, those who know me know I don't drive slow. However, after one speeding ticket and a fender bender, my insurance rates can't handle another infraction. Sooooo..... I was doing a bit over 45 mph but not by much.
A car was on my butt SUPER tight! Of course, I had to have a conversation with the other driver, whether he could hear me or not.
"Sir, get off my tail! That is NOT going to make me drive faster!"
Just as soon as I passed the truck, it started veering to the right. Apparently, the other car was so close to me, the driver in the truck only saw one vehicle. I heard a big BOOM and then saw the car that was behind me begin to swerve all across the northbound lanes!
I put the pedal to the metal, baby!
That was the scariest close encounter I've ever had. I hope everything is ok for both drivers and any passengers.
