I went past there about 10:30am. Not a pretty sight. Most of the emergency vehicles had gone, but a silver car with most of its right side caved-in by a post or a tree (at least I assume from its position halfway onto the median) had been left in position, with police looking over it.

Someone’s life has been changed forever this morning.

I hope they didn’t just become another statistic.

Be careful out there.

Back in my 20s, when I didn’t have a car, I once asked an insurance guy if they gave discounts on life insurance to people who don’t drive, like they do for non-smokers. Apparently not.
