This picture says it all, but let’s elaborate nonetheless. Colorado Springs news station KOAA reported this horrific car accident via its Facebook page, which detailed the ordeal of a man halfway across the country. Way down in San Jose, Californiyay, a feller went for a casual drive to work on Friday morning. One thing led to another, and he followed too close behind another vehicle during rush-hour traffic.
Y’all know the worst vehicles to follow, right? The ones bearing signs that read, “If you can’t see my mirrors, I can’t see you.” No one sees those signs until it’s far too late with traffic at a standstill (and no way to escape). Perhaps a font size greater than “12” would help such plights, but regardless of the cause, this poor man followed too near to a truck carrying steal beams, which were not fastened properly to their host vehicle.
Believe it or not (and I don’t, not all the way), the occupant of this vehicle walked away with only the tiniest scratch upon his burly arm. There’s really no telling what happened below the belt, but the important matter in this case is that, yes, the man landed safely on the side of the road. Surely, no one’s insurance company was thrilled during this incident, but no one was severely hurt. And really, that’s the best we can ask for during rush hour. Small mercies, folks.
