Too Close To Home…Literally!

Way to start your Monday morning…

It’s about 1:00AM.  My hubby and I are sitting in the living room, he’s playing video games and I am being all crafty when all of the sudden we hear a loud CRASH!  We both drop everything and run to the front window that looks out to the street but couldn’t really see anything until we went outside.  That’s when we saw a bunch of broken pieces of a car, truck and another car.

Some assclown decided it would be fun to drink his face off and do a bunch of donuts down the street.  This said driver, after doing a couple of donuts then booked it down the street as fast as he could and along the way, he hit two cars parked on the road minding their own business.  He damaged the back driver side of the neighbors car that lives two houses down and wrote that car off (bent the rear wheel 45 degrees inward), but the most damage was done to our next door neighbors truck.  His rear drivers side was totaled.  The impact was so hard that it even cracked the front windshield!  The drunk’s car was totaled too as the front end was smashed in.

Had those vehicles not been parked where they were, with the direction this buttpie was going, he would have driven up into our front yard and plowed into our cars parked in the driveway, maybe even our garage.

Apparently, the drunk’s friends and possibly his dad were all outside watching him be a clown and saw the whole thing happen as the lot of them showed up seconds after impact.  Part of me felt bad for the drunk’s dad as he just looked like he didn’t know what to do with himself.  He was obviously concerned for his son, looked pissed off at what he did and extremely embarrassed for this whole thing happened in his neighborhood right in front of his neighbors.  The other part of me isn’t sure how to feel towards the dad as I’m unsure if he was also one of those watching him burn donuts drunk. 

Thankfully, the only one injured was the driver himself.  I am unsure of his injuries, but there was no blood at the scene to say that it was major.  His trusty airbag and alcohol consumption saved his sorry ass and after coming to he tried to get up a few times, but people kept telling him to stay put and not move.  He even tried to get up after the EMS had him strapped down on the gurney.

Needless to say, our next door neighbor is LIVID over this whole thing as he very well should be.

I was thinking of taking my camera out to snap a few pictures of the damage, but then thought against it as that wouldn’t have been very tactful of me.  I also didn’t see this as something “news worthy” to run and grab my camera for.

I’m just glad no one else was in the car with him and no one else was hurt.
