I was on this expressway coming back from a job site. I stopped to get a slurpee and got back in the work van and on the expressway.
Well, the guy in front of me didn’t have either of his break lights working. So I turn my head for a second to drink some slurpee and when I look up, I’m in his rear end.
I was in this state of shock. I didn’t know what happened, I was so out of it. The front of the work van was completely smashed in.
The guy pulled over and came to my car and asked if I was allright. I said “yeah.” He asked for my license and insurance information. Man, I didn’t know what was going on. I was so out of it. I handed him those things and he went back to his car with them.
I was just sitting in the car, just shocked, I don’t know. He came back and gave me my cards back, asked if I was okay again, and then drove off.
I have no information on him. No idea who he was.
I don’t have any broken bones or anything, but I hurt everywhere. When my wife made me go to the ER, they gave me pills to take and man, am I hopped up on pain meds right now.
My direct boss sounded concerned when I called, but the company president is pissed I think. You have to get a doctor’s “okay” to go back on the job after an accident, so I think he doesn’t like the work stoppage.
I don’t know whether I’m out of it from the accident or from the pills. My wife’s glaring at me. She wants me to rest.
