What a SHOCK!

What a shocker! I log on to our local news online to check the weather forecast and what do I see on the headline news??? There was a terrible accident on US 23 involving a coal truck and a pickup, so I click on it only to realize that the pick up belonged to my UNCLE. I'm watching this video and then I realize that the coal truck that he hit belongs to the company that my hubby worked for right before he was laid off. The coal truck driver is one of hubby's best friends. My uncle, after hitting the coal truck in the butt, spins and hits another big truck.

Watch the video of the accident scene, it doesn't show anything terrible only the truck and the helicopter, but can you believe that he has been released from the hospital with 6 staples in his head and a few scratches!!!

Richard talked to his friend and he wasn't sure exactly why my uncle hit him, but he was pretty upset about the whole thing too.

What a scare!I think that's the most frightening thing about the internet....you get all kinds of news so quick!

So glad no one was really badly hurt, though!

Have a quiet and calm weekend!

I guess God was definitely with your uncle today, huh? It could have been so much worse. Praise God he's ok. You would never have been able to decide that looking at his truck!
be blessed,
