So, tonight I’m sitting on a couch at my friend’s apartment. We’re just skipping channels watching nothing at all (mostly just talking).
Imagine a crash through your kitchen. Well, that’s basically what happened.
A drunk driver ran a stop sign and ran straight into my friends apartment pushing the entire kitchen counter and dishes into the wall and floor.
I jumped up and first thing said, “Dude, someone just ran into your house,” which we later found out to be very true. So a drunk driver hit my friends house and I jumped up thinking it was going to hit me after it shook me nearly off the couch.
I ran to the back door, opened it and saw two headlights approximately 10 feet away. That alone was a sign that I shouldn’t attempt to assist the situation (yet).
As it turns out, the person that hit the house was an acquaintance and someone that I had recently met. While he is a great person and very friendly, he did a very stupid thing.
As I opened the door I see two headlights backing out and the vehicle hits a power source, …then the road. They take off speeding.
The damage done was, a kitchen sink, counter, garbage disposal, cabinets, glasses, dishes, etc… spread all over the floor.
Honestly, if anyone were in the kitchen at the time then they would have been in pain and probably more. Luckily, no one was hurt and everyone was alert.
We were all shook up and nervous, so when the police came and questioned us we all gave detailed descriptions.
Fortunately we all knew who the drunk was and we all wanted to prosecuted him for his stupidity and endangerment.
The current status is that he is still at large although his vehicle is still at his home and officers are waiting outside his home.
The police are at this minute waiting outside his home waiting for him to come out.
Without a sign of him being home they are not allowed to enter, but they are scoping the property for signs of someone there.
The deck was destroyed… railing was crushed, couch was crushed, foldout chairs were crushed….everything gone.
When the car hit, I was sitting on the sofa. The impact pushed me nearly off the couch. That’s when I knew something went terribly wrong.
The police have taken my information for now, but we’ll find out if I’m actually needed (I hope not). Here’s to staying sober and driving under the “uninfluence”.
Most people say drunk accidents will never happen to them (that’s me), but this honestly come out of nowhere. Be safe, drive sober or don’t drive at all. 😉
Now I have to open my schedule due to a stupid drunk driver. Let’s hope they catch him before they need me for jury duty!
