Husband was in a head on crash this morning
A driver coming opposite my husband this morning fell asleep at the wheel and crossed the yellow line. He hit my husband just about head on causing the airbags to deploy. My husbands car spun hitting a telephone pole. The sleeping driver also hit the truck behind my husband causing it to flip over. All cars were totaled but thankfully only minor injuries. It was a scary phonecall from my husband at 6am saying he'd been in a head on crash and to come down there. My neighbor and friend came right over to sit with my kids. This is Brian's car, it's a 1995 mirage with 175,000. My boys were convinced it was a transformer and the fact that my husband walked out of that car with only minor injuries just solidifies that belief. The transformer saved their dad. I took tons of pictures of the crash site. It had one of the main roads closed down for hours. Driving up to the scene was really scary even knowing that Brian was okay. With all the lights and just the sight of all the cars and the shape they were in I'm shocked that no one was seriously hurt and I thank god that Brian didn't drive his motorcycle this morning because the outcome would have been horribly different. Brians back tire and axel were ripped off the car and thrown more than 60 feet into the woods behind him slicing a small tree in half in the process. The back end of the car is in the back seat and part of the back seat is in the front seat. The car filled with smoke but Brian was able to force the door open and get out.
