While I was driving on U.S. 278 the other day, traffic began slowing down. Then, bang -- my car was hit from behind by a truck. I got out of my car. The driver of the truck finally got out and said he was sorry.
When I asked him to call the police, he remarked that we had to get off the road. When I told him I would pull over onto the grass, he said I should go over to a road that would have been impossible to get to as the two lanes to the right of me were moving too fast. I eventually pulled into the Walgreens parking lot and motioned for him to follow me. Instead, he drove away.
The police department considers it a hit and run. Only a low life would take off and not stay to accept any responsibility for a crash. I gave the best description of the truck and the person I could and hope he will be caught for leaving the scene of an accident.
Just what is wrong with people?
Thank you to all of the Walgreens employees who helped me.
