Yep. My brother and I were exiting the mcdonalds (ugh…) after lunch to go back to the jobsite to start on the prewiring. We were coming out of the parking lot and up to a left turn, there’s no light and cross traffic has the right of way. So were sitting there waiting, and jeremy could have gone had this old lady rushed across and made her left in the opening she had. But she didn’t.
So we’re waiting, she’s waiting, and waiting… and then she starts inching her car forward, next thing I hear is tires screeching.
“i’m thinking wtf” as I look up and watch as this old silver volvo slides right into this old lady’s Taurus, busting out his turn signal.
As we stare in awe, I start to kinda laugh and look over at this HOT chica in the SUV beside us and she’s smiling ear to ear just like I am as we look at each other.
Anyway, so the guy puts his car in park and just friggen sits there in his car, on the phone finishing up the call he was on as he was driving before the accident. The lady in the taurus sits there in her car flabberghasted that it just happened.
Now the accident occurred, and was the total fault of the old lady turning left. BUT, my question is this… could any blame be put onto the guy in the Volvo? He was on his phone, travelling too fast (prolly 40 in a 30), and obviously wasn’t paying attention.
Would that fall under a “cell phone accident” if he even bothered to tell the police that he was on his phone?
That was my excitement for the day.
