A Day in the Life of a Brooklyn Driver

Sorry for the lack of updates this week. On Monday afternoon I was on my way to a wake for a good friend's father. About a mile from my house I was in a car crash and I'm in quite a bit of pain right now. My daughter's got some pictures and we'll get them posted up on line soon, but my little red Suzuki is no more.

As I was waiting at a red light, a woman in a US Post Office uniform crashed into the rear of my car. The force of the impact knocked me into a Toyota in front of me and pinned my car into a school bus on the left.

After totaling my car and causing a four car collision, this woman got out of her Lincoln Navigator, with her "diva" and "chocolate divas" stickers all over the Navigator, looked around and left. I don't know why but while I was on the phone with 911, I had enough sense to get her license plate. Something told me she was going to bolt.

What kind of person causes a four car accident, involving school children and an elderly driver of the Toyota, leaves the scene?

Now I hear that the registered owner of the car is denying being the driver. I don't know for sure, since the driver didn't speak to anyone before leaving the scene of the accident, but the registered owner is a woman who's name matches the ethnicity of presumed driver. I hope I get to do a police lineup. I can identify her. I saw her.

To this driver whomever she is, I just hope she's having as a many sleepless nights as I am since the accident. Not from the physical pain as I am, but from the pain of a guilty conscience.

Accidents happen baby. Leaving the scene is unforgivable and criminal.

Holy crap !!!

Keep us updated mang, am most interested to know the outcome. I wasn't involved and am getting pissed off.

How'd your xrays turn out? Demerol? Oh, juicy demerol, how I love you. Or dilaudid, that's even better.

That sucks! People who run away and hide from their mistakes are the worst kind of person.

I hope you feel better.

Unbelievable! Hope you're feeling better and that they tracked down that other driver!

I'm thinking drunk driver, they're usually the ones who leave. Hope you're much better now. What a shitty thing to do.
