Car Accident

Tuesday, December 1, 2009

Well, that's not all that happened to us. We were in a car accident Tuesday, December 1, 2009 at 7:30 p.m. and it was Elder Maldonado’s fault. We were lost and realized we needed to not turn at the intersection, so Elder Maldonado decided to move out of the left turning lane back to the lane going straight ahead, he didn't see the car coming that close behind. The other driver was a young man about 26 years old, Sister Maldonado said that he came out of the blue and quite fast and hit them in the side rear passage door and fender, which stopped when it reached where she was sitting. We were watched over, because it could have been worse. The other car had a front driver’s side flat tire and dent on the vehicle above the tire. When Elder Maldonado approached the young man to see if he was okay, the young man was talking on the phone and saying that a stupid old man pulled out in front of him and hit his car, but he said he was fine to Elder Maldonado. Elder Maldonado said, well now, others know him as a stupid old man and he admits that he is a stupid old man. Elder Maldonado ended up getting a citation for an improper lane change. When the fire department and ambulance showed up, the man in the accident with us then began to complain of his arm hurting. Later Elder Maldonado found out that he was okay, nothing serious. Now, dealing with Insurances and getting a body shop and car rented will not be much fun, but we are blessed to be Okay. The Lord truly watches over us even if one of us is a stupid old man.
