Today's Writing Prompt: Accident
Describe the circumstances of an accident you've been in. Car, plane, boat, bike - any kind.
The very first car accident I was ever involved in was coming home from a Cubs meeting one evening. Hal was driving our new pick up truck and fortunately it was cold so Greg was in the cab and not in the back. Hey, that was back in the day when we let people ride in the back of pick up trucks and no one thought anything of it. We were heading north on Fairview Ave at Wellington Street when a car turned right in front of us. Hal saw it and was able to swerve enough that he only hit only one corner of the truck. Turns out the kid had just got his license that day. No one was hurt thank goodness but because it was the first time I'd ever been in an accident I was pretty upset and so relieved we had Greg in the cab with us.
