Accidents happen as the saying goes. Everyone has heard this at least once or twice in their life and others have been warned against the dangers of driving distracted.
A regular weekday could have become a tragedy for the author. The car on top of the Corvette is mine. The van ahead of me was stopped at a yellow light turning red and I stopped once I saw the van. In the blink of an eye, I was pushed forward into the van by the Corvette and elevated at a 45 degree angle. The Corvette driver admitted they took their eyes off the road for a brief moment to retrieve something that had fallen on the floor of their car and before they knew it, their airbags had deployed and it was dark.
Everyone was fortunate to walk out of the accident in one piece. No one was younger than 26 in this accident – age has nothing to do with it. Regardless of age, no one should ever drive distracted.
