I went out to wash windows after the game today. I live on a rural road...35 mph speed limit.

It's a bit curvy, and I heard a truck coming...stomping on the gas after each corner. I'm off the road a bit but I turned to look to see who it was. I couldn't tell who it was, but I immediately heard a crash.

I put the dogs in and ran out to see if I could help. The driver side hit a large oak tree and basically disintegrated that side of the truck. I wanted to help this poor, young man...but there wasn't anything I could do.

His girlfriend/wife was fine. Well, she wasn't hurt anyhow. I went around and helped her get out and got her away from the truck, where a couple of the neighbor ladies took over.

I went back again to see if I could help...but I was powerless. I'm not a religious person, but I just asked to Lord to please help this man and I suppose that he did just that.

So yea...that was my day today.

But for the grace of God go I. Many of us were lucky to live through it. This young man didn't. Happens far too often.

I was in an accident like that as teenager completely my fault just a kid hot roddin with my buddy we hit a power pole going well over a hundred. By a some miracle we both walked away with just a couple of scratches. Ever since that day I've been accused of driving like a grandpa but I'm ok with that. Sad to lose young folks or anyone that way

unfortunately many people are in too much of a hurry when they are driving....so sad that the young man will never get to where he was going.

You guys were lucky for sure.
Had a good buddy wrap his dad's Ferrari around a telephone pole. His dad sent him to military school. He came back decided to ride his 4 wheeler while beyond wasted hit a tree and died.

Tough deal. I went through a similar experience. A guy crossed over the double yellow line on a turn and hit a tri-axel full of stone. Poor guy was stuck in the SUV steering wheel on his chest like a vise. He was alive for a few minutes, spoke briefly to him and got some responses to get him to hang on....we were powerless too.

Kre -

You stated you were not a religious man - but yet you knew who to turn to........I pray God continues to grow your faith. May you learn the Lord allows things in this life to get others attention. I pray God reveals more to you daily and you learn to grow your relationship with your creator. He is always there for us, with open arms, wanting to pour out His love upon us. Allow Him to enter and change your life. I will never be able to thank Jesus enough for what He has done for me and changing my life.
