crunch!

In my last post I discussed the worries of moms who have kids driving cars.
And... to prove my point my 16 year old son had a wreck on Monday. Poor kid!
A truck pulled out in front of him and then the driver FLED the scene! My son
actually chased this guy for 5 or 6 blocks, honking his horn until the guy pulled over.
Thankfully, the guy didn't shoot my son! He tried to talk Ian out of calling the police,
but Ian was too smart to fall for that. And really, my son (and the other driver) were
unhurt, so that is the main thing.
But poor Ian! That boy ADORES his car... works on it nearly every day.
The photo is a bit deceptive. His radiator is messed up. I'm afraid this is
more than cosmetic damage. But, he is taking it well.
It is a perilous world!

Poor kid. I hope something can be done about the other drive, but most likely not. I'm just glad your son and his friend were not hurt.

Glad that he is okay. I can see what you mean about how he adores his car. I think I would be able to see my reflection in the hood! Hopefully, it will be repaired in no time.
