WW: Accident | PSA | New Car

A month ago I was in a car crash. I was driving my 13 year old Isaak to school. I was going the speed limit. Out of no where this car was driving all crazy like through a red light, when mine was very green. It was dark, airbags went off in my face. My car wouldn't do anything. The next thing I knew the car I hit just started driving away. 

The crazy thing...he left behind his in transit sticker along with some glass. So I have a name, 3 witnesses that were on my side, but the cops can't do anything because it's not enough to get a search warrant. He of course went into hiding. I looked the guy up online and he has tons of videos of him drinking hard alcohol and smoking pot, while driving. Get this he's a proud lover of Jesus Christ though. He wears a cross around his neck like it means something to him. 

We had taken our 16 year old car off accident insurance, so it was a loss. I actually was ready to buy a new car, but was waiting for the pandemic and shortages to come to a stop. Travis said it looked like I lost a baby or something when he came to get Isaak from the scene. It felt surreal sitting in a cop car in the middle of a busy intersection. I couldn't get out to take pictures, There was bars separating us like I was the one that did something wrong.  

I was lucky I was wearing my seatbelt, and the Isaak was in the backseat. My chest hurt for weeks. Then it itched inside for a few more weeks. My knee was really bruised up. 

I've tried to find the car that hit me, but the guy has like 4 addresses online. If I find it they can have a cop meet me, or do a search warrant. I wouldn't find him for me. He has no insurance. His car isn't even registered. It would be to get him off the streets. 

I spent a few weeks just with my husband's car. I drove him to work, Isaak to school, and repeated that at the end of the day.

My husband finally said, "No more." I said, "How do we do this with the pandemic?" We went to Subaru, and bought this Crosstrek. It's a brand new 2021. I guess it wasn't bought because people didn't like the color. I was just glad it wasn't ultramarine blue. There's nothing wrong with the color, but my Civic was that color, Travis' Outback is that color, and he had a truck that color. I was just done with that color for us. Green it is. 

It took a bit to get used to driving without putting a key in. I couldn't stand the engine shut off feature, so for now that's off. I felt odd driving after the accident for awhile. Isaak felt the same as a passenger. Switching insurance was a pain in the ass. I had to go to the DMV a few times because the one I used to go to isn't there anymore and the one I went to didn't have plates as a feature to get. DMV's are something! I'm glad I have a car that runs. 


  1. How awful. Why is it your responsibility to find the person that did a hit and run? Not following that very well.

    I'm glad you're okay, and yes those seat belts are a good thing to always have on.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. ♥

  2. @Sandee it was a busy spot. The cop said that in transit sticker could have been from my accident, or someone else's. :( Also the cop did go to his house and he hid. There wasn't enough to have a search warrant.

  3. Oh, that's awful! I'm so glad you're both okay. I don't know why the cops can't do anything. I'd think it was their job to keep crazies off the roads.

    Some people hide behind a false Christianity for different reasons. It's not a reflection of true Christianity.

    I'm sorry for the financial burden but glad you've got a new car. I think the color is hip! Do people say that anymore? lol :D

    Sending a prayer your way for your family,

  4. So glad you are ok, A.

    Thank God, you were wearing your seatbelt.

  5. OMG so glad your OK must had been awful thank god you had your seatbelt on

    I hope your feeling better now in yourself

    Have a newcartastic week Alissa

  6. Sorry to hear about this accident. Crazy people in the traffic.
    I'm glad you are both well.
    Be well and a fine week ahead!

  7. This is terrible. I can't believe the police can't do anything. Also isn't it illegal to drink while driving so can't the police at least charge him for the videos? How weird.
    As for the engine shut off, you get used to it and it's so much better for fuel efficiency - you'll save money! Give it an anoother go. I never even notice it now.

  8. So sad to hear about this incident. Hope you are much better now.
    Have a great day!

  9. Glad you are back, and glad you are OK!

  10. Glad that you are ok and it sounds like this guy needs to be off the road. It is so sad that the police can not do anything. He also needs to pay for what he did. Sad.

    Thanks for hosting and I hope that you have a wonderful week.

  11. What an awful thing to happen but so glad to hear you were both saved by your seat belts, it's quite shocking how little the police can do for you xxx

  12. Dang it, sounds like quite the accident! So glad you are okay.

  13. All in all, I'm glad you are both ok. That's a scary situation to be in. Sorry you had to take a loss because he ran away. That makes me so angry! Your new car is all kinds of cute. I actually love the color!
