It’s amazing how fast adrenaline can pump. I just left the scene of an accident.
I pulled over on the side of the road to feed my baby and finished buckling her back in when a car in the opposite lane swerved, hit a guard rail and spun around. Overcorrection.
The truck went into gear and over the median and we were on the scene of the accident.
Two young girls. My husband triaged the situation before they made any big moves while I called 911.
It was time for hugs and holding. The driver was sobbing.
I was so grateful she was sobbing. She was alive.
There’s a lot we take for granted and life is usually one of them.
