    Just a short note to let everyone know that DEJ/FL and Pharoah had a close call last night on the way home. They dropped me off and then proceeded to drop Jim off and on their way to drop Pharoah off they had an accident. They were stopped at a red light and a lady in a new 4 Runner ran through the intersection and hit them head on and then left the scene. She is now in Jail. DEJ/FL and Pharoah are both okay, no serious injury but pretty shook up. Dan told me on the phone last night that the new Star Ship may be a total loss. She hit them so hard that it pushed them back into the car behind them all sitting at the red light.

    Just wanted to let all our friends know and keep them in our thoughts. These days you just never know what the next seconds of life may bring.

    Oh My Gosh!!!!

    And Dan and I were saying over the weekend that you never know what is in store for you.

    Thank God no one was hurt, vehicles can be replaced. People can't.

    Thanks for the info, Don.

    Thank goodness they did not get seriously injured. Thoughts and prayers are with you both. I am sure you guys will be sore after an impact like that.

    Sure am thankful that y'all are OK. As I've learned, life can throw you a curve in a split-second. Material things don't matter NEAR as much as they used to! Thank GOD y'all are alright!! Tony & Donna.

    Latest update.

    The lady that hit them was DRUNK and was stopped by the police several blocks away after she hit them for blasting through a stop sign. The cop who got her then recieved the info that she had also been in an accident and left the scene.

    Dan and Pete are working on the insurance claim and all that plus taking some pictures. We will probably get more updates.

    So far what I heard is that she is in jail for

    1. Leaving the scene of an accident.
    2. DUI.
    3. Evading the police.

    I hope they tack on a few more for good measure.

    Sounds like God's hand was on them yesterday.

    Glad no one was seriously injured.

    I talked to both of them and they both are fine. I don't think Pete wanted anything else replaced. Sorry you were unable to make the Orlando match, Hope to see you at Ft. Bennings.

    I am thankful nobody was injured. Like others have said, material things can be replaced. It is scary to hear of these things knowing that anyone of our good freinds could be injured, maimed or worse at any given time. Thankfully that wasn't the case!!!

    Dan & Pete, I am sure you guys are a bit sore today. Take care of yourselves and we will hopefully see you at Ft. Benning.

    Thanks to all my GT and GSSF friends for your kind words, thoughs and prayers! Pete and I do have a lot to be thankful for! We are still a bit out of sorts almost 20+ hours later! Thank You OnStar! The response time for the police and parameditics was really FAST!:shocked:
    I hope I never have to find out again.
    As soon as I can, I will post some picture of what is left of the "Star Ship Enterprise".
    I cannot express how I feel about the out pouring of concern from all my friends here! It makes me feel that there is hope for modern mankind! :supergrin:

    Thank you God! Thank you to everyone at the accident, all the people who came to our aid. Those folks where all really great. I have not seen anything like that in my life. Like what Dan said there is really hope for civilization. Thank you everone here on GT! I really think with everyone's love and prayers here the Good LORD helps keep us all save. I pray I never have to go through that again. Last night was a rough nite trying to sleep. Every time I started to fall a sleep I would wake in a gasp. I hope tonight is better. I still can not thank everyone enough.

    I'm glad you guys are all right. It seems that drunk drivers always hit the nicest people. I'm glad no one on either side was hurt. I hope she legally gets a trial and what she deserves and maybe she'll quit drinking and or never be allowed to drive again. I don't know if she's been stopped for this before, but whatever, it'll probably be her last. I'm just glad the people I know are safe and sound, a little stunned, but safe!

    Dan,

    I'll bet you are glad that you drive a civilian tank. I'm also relieved that neither you nor Peter were injured. Hope to see y'all again, real soon.

    Specifically ditto what Danny said. I'm soooooooo glad you guys weren't in some guilt-ridden little enviro-scooter with an 8" wheelbase. God was definitely lookin' out for ya.

    +1 to what Kaye said about the liniment. And get to the chiro anyway. :thumbsup:
