Hit a Deer......totalled my car

Friday, July 10th left my house for work. 10 minutes down the road I hit a deer. I was going Northbound. The deer flew up in the air and hit a truck going Southbound. The air bags both exploded and I didn't know what happened. Very dazed I was able to find my cell. I called 911......guess what, no one came. After the 911 call I called my husband at work. He had to travel through 7 towns to get to me. He arrived first and he made another 911 call. I couldn't get out of my car....the door was jammed. Within minutes the fire truck and ambulance arrived.

I was very lucky. My blood pressure was high and I was bruised up and my left arm was swollen, but nothing was broken. What a scary thing when the air bags exploded! I thought my car was on fire and it smelled really bad. I am very sad to have to say goodbye to my car:(
So you think that would be enough......no.......some kids out shooting fireworks last night and the church next to us went up in flames. It started on an evergreen bush and just kept going.
I just want everything to go back to normal around here.

I am so glad you are o.k. So sad about your car... Hope everything gets back to "normal" for you!

OH MY! So sorry to hear about your accident. That's HORRIBLE that no one came when you dialed 911! Glad you're relatively OK. Sad news about the church as well. The parents of the children who were shooting the fireworks that caused the fire must feel awful.

I really just stopped by to thank you for the thoughtful comment you left for me. I do appreciate it very much.

Hope all will be well with you again very soon.

Warm regards,
Bill

Yikes, that is scary. Glad you're ok. My mom had a deer jump onto the hood of her car, luckily she wasn't in the car when it happened.

Oh my gosh, that is just terrible. I am glad that you are alright. I have never had my air bags go off, but I can imagine that it is very scary. Please take care....you have been through an upsetting experience for sure! Amy

O,my...I am so sorry about the accident. I was in one about a month ago when my hubby ran into the back of another pickup. The air bags exploded and, like you, I was so stunned, I didn't know what happened for just a bit. The cab filled up with that "stuff" until I could barely see and the smell...omigosh!! Those bags hit so dang hard, too.
So glad you are doing ok...you were blessed, indeed.
That's sad news to hear of the unattended 911 call. I can't believe they didn't come. So glad your hubby hurried and got there for you.

How scary! I'm glad you are okay. I came to read your scones recipe and also read about your wreck. Happy you're back to cooking.

Oh my gosh, was a scary thing to have happen to you! You are so lucky you weren't hurt more seriously. I can't believe you got no response from 911 for so long. That is scary too! I'm so sorry about your car.
