Car Accident

John was involved in an automobile accident just before noon.  A woman ran a red light & slammed into the front end of our car.  The phone rang & it was the police.  They told me he had been in an accident & could I come pick him up as our car was not able to be driven.  He was having some issues & so they called the fire department & the paramedics.  He declined to go to the hospital. The car was towed ... an adjuster will look at it in the next day or two.  John has a bit of pain in his back & is shaken up but otherwise seems okay. He promised me that he will let me know if the pain gets worse.

God was watching out for him.  If he had entered into the intersection a second sooner ... or the other driver had gone through the red light a second later ... things could have been much worse.

Poor John, he must be very shaken up. He really should have been checked out by the hospital, if only for the insurance!
I hope he is OK.

Oh, Shirley! That phone call is among the most frightening things in life. Thank God for that one spare second. Please let us know how John (and you, when your heart moves back into your chest) is doing. You'll both be in my prayers.

Oh my, very scary. We were slammed into last year and the first week of recovery was rough even though we were "okay". I hope he is able to rest a lot! Thank God he is okay, with nothing broken or worse. I will be praying!
