Drunk driver
Damn drunk hit my wife this evening on her way home from work. She saw the guy coming up behind her and swerving all over the interstate. She tried to get over and out of his way, but he got the rear end of the vehicle on the passenger side. My wife was able to follow him for a short distance before he pulled over and she (being a nurse) went to check on him and he fell out of the passenger side. He was trashed and could not even stand up. He is now in jail, but he tried to say he wasn't the driver and that the driver got out and ran. My wife and a witness both told the police that no one got out and ran and that he was the only one in the vehicle. At least my wife was unhurt. They figure that by him hitting her the way he did, it may have saved someone from being killed.

I have no patience or sympathy for any drunk driver hurt, killed etc. Problem is, they usually survive and the innocent persons family suffers with loss of a loved one. Seen it too many times.
Glad your wife was one of the lucky casualties.

I am really happy that your wife is OK! Selfish SOB that hit her, hope he rots in jail. You know, your wife sounds like a really nice person...she had the humanity to treat him after he could have seriously injured her or worse. Then the SOB lies about it...well, she is a better person then I am. Regardless, glad no one was hurt!

At least we got some good news today.

He has only had is auto insurance for 10 days and his insurance company I guess is very shady with claims, so my insurance company is taking care of everything upfront so we can get the car fixed without delay and they will take care of getting the money back from his insurance company.

I was concerned that my rates would go up if I used my insurance, but they have assured me that my policy or record will not be affected by this since it was not my wifes fault and the guy was trashed.

I will probably never find out what happens to the guy, but it would be nice to see.

The nice thing is, the insurance company will dog him for the rest of his life trying to get all the money back from the damage he caused.

And Bankrupsy court will not protect him from insurance costs.
Which is worse, ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care!

All is well now, just have to wait for the car repairs. Don't know how well things will work out for the other guy though. Hopefully this accident saved someone's life, interstates are not a great place to be with a drunk.

Thanks for the replies!

Glad to hear your wife's okay. Hopefully this'll put the guy in jail for awhile to think about his stupidity.
