Wreck on the way home :-(

Not me, but it was still scary to look at.

I'm glad I took the long way home after picking Karina (my 8 year old) up from school. Apparently, someone wasn't paying enough attention, and tried to beat traffic into the turn lane directly in front of our entrance to the complex. Well, obviously, they didn't make it. By the looks of it, the SUV only made it halfway into the lane before a small car hit the entire back end.

I came home "around the block" (pretty much around one entire neighborhood, lol), as it's the only way i don't need to cross traffic to get home. Good thing, too, since a fire truck and ambulance were blocking the turning lane and had the left side of my lane blocked with the car.

Paramedics were treating a few people just inside the apartments parking lot. It didn't seem as if anyone was seriously hurt, but the car was totaled. And people wonder why I'm such a paranoid and cautious driver. :-/

You are wise to be extra cautious!  I hope no one was seriously hurt. It was dangerously ice when we came home yesterday. We saw a pickup off the road, but there were several people trying to get it out, it didn't look as though anyone were hurt.

It's been drizzling/misting all day today, so the weather sucks. It really didn't look like anyone was hurt, but the front of the car was completely mangled. :-/

It seems like they were. The ambulance didn't take anyone.
