Default Hit by Car!

I've been real sick lately. That is why I haven't been posting. I was hit by a car that ran a redlight in downtown Mobile. I was walking across the street and he ran the red light and knocked me some distance. Broke leg and tore ligaments and other injuries.

I hope to be back soon. Thank God the young man has insurance.

I miss you ya'll. Hope eveyone had a Happy New year.

Good thing he had insurance. You'll be able to get the rehab you need to keep your mobility.
As one that recently went through rehab I'll tell you mine was not long and painful, but I do not wish to go through it again anytime soon.

Ouch! You live in Mobile? Just kidding! Hope you haven't lost your sense of humor.

Man that had to hurt! I can't even imagine it. I wince when I try to. Not only the insurance thing, thank God he didn't run. So many people would've.

Take care of yourself and get plenty of rest. :sleep: Hopefully the down time doesn't hurt your career. There are always so many things that insurance can't cover.

Good luck, hang in there! :thumbup:

Hope you get better soon Bama. Man, Bama has lived the craziest life. I remember some of the true-life tales he posted years ago. A car accident is just another page in the story.

I was actually almost hit a month ago. A guy screeched on the brakes, missed me by about... less than a foot I imagine. He looked out the window and said he was sorry. That was good enough for me.
