My husband and I decided to go out for breakfast/lunch today. As we were pulling up to the Cheesecake Factory, my husband asked me to go ahead and jump out, he'd go get a parking spot. I'm halfway out of the car when we saw and heard a crunch of a car hitting another, right next to us. She pulled up, stopped, the guy in front of her started yelling, as she is taking off my husband said "she isn't going to just take off is she" yep, there she goes, peeling out (the streets were really wet, in California, that is not a good thing) he yells at me, GET OUT...as he does a u turn to follow her. She was driving so fast, Dean got on the phone to call 911, as he turned the corner he spotter her, then there was a big bellow of smoke. She ran a stop sign and slammed into the side of another car. It was a brand new Mercedes, no plates yet...then he saw a baby in the back seat with blood, he was still on the phone with 911 and said to bring an ambulance. The lady that was driving erratic, pulled back and went around the car trying to take off, but all the airbags had deployed, and there was no front end, it was totally crushed...a new BMW. Dean was able to give a statement. after lunch we drove over (just a block away) to see the cars, the police told us they hauled her off to jail, she also had a baby in the car. So sad, none of this would of happened if she had taken the time to do the right thing and tell the people (in the Lexis ) that she hit their car, there was no damage.
We had a beautiful thunder and lightning storm this evening. What fun!
