Anyways, we safely retrieved the paper and headed on our way to work. My husband and I clean vacation rentals and we only had one today, so we were taking our time this morning.
Naturally, my husband was driving closer to 50 in a 40 speed limit area in the left lane on a three lane road. Up ahead, was an RV pulling a car behind it, who was drifting from the right to the middle lane. Unbeknownst to us, this man planned to make a U-turn from the middle lane and didn't happen to register our existence in the left lane.
And so, by the time we realized what was happening and slammed the breaks, it was too late. We stopped in time, but he didn't and we were, unfortunately, inside his turning radius. We honked and honked and honked some more, but he didn't stop. He hit us, pushing us into the curb. This was pretty scary for me considering my two year old was in the car with us.
The end result was a tire popped off the rim and a pretty scrunched up front bumper on our beautiful Honda Ridgeline that we've owned for less than three months. My poor husband is devastated. But we are just thanking whoever is up there that we are all safe, especially our little princess.
