    When a van ran a red light and creamed a cadillac that had just gotten to the intersection. That shit freaks you out. I walked across the street right after the Caddy went past me only to watch it happen about 10 feet from me. I jumped back another 5 feet and said "holy shit!" Grabbed my phone and called 911 for it.

    If the lady running the red light had been coming from the other way and creamed that caddy, it could have been pushed into me on the curb.

    No epiphanies from this, but I did notice that when you dial 911 it doesn't show up on your 'recent calls' call log on your cell phone.

    My cousin is a blonde brunette. I told her the caddy went through the green and the van ran the redlight, hit the caddy and scared the shit out of me... her response was "who's at fault?"

    ... seriously?? I didn't think it'd be too hard to comprehend that red = stop... I'm scared, I'm never riding with her again.

    Wow.

    Glad you're alright man.









    One time my uncle was on a curb and a car went by and hopped it and ran over both his feet. Broke them.

    That almost happened to me once when I was 17 or so. Walking down the street and some dude hopped the curb right behind me... I tend to walk further from the street now.
