RIP - Lilly
Originally she was in the wrong lane that she needed to go straight and ended up going around a block. She went around the block only to find the lane she needed was backed up by several blocks. Then to her relief someone let her in, unfortunately she forgot about the traffic still moving in the lane she had to cross. She was T-boned in the back door drivers side.
She called us right away, only thing was she was so upset I could hardly understand her and trying to figure out where she was, was next to impossible. Finally someone else took the phone from her and we were able to figure out where the accident took place.
We were only a few yards away from the accident when a squad car came through with their lights on and backed up traffic. I seriously thought about just getting out of the car and running the rest of the way. Then to our relief everyone got out of the lane we were in (that's where the patrol car parked) and we zoomed right up front.
They were just finishing checking her over and other then a few small cuts from fly glass and a bump on her head from hitting the side window, she was fine.
The other divers was fine, as for her car - I'm not thinking so much. It's not a good sign when you see a pile of kitty litter soaking something up that leaked out of her car.
I had already called her cheer coach to let her know Little K would not be at the game (Oh how I love cell phones). After everything was said and done Little K insisted on making an appearance at the game. Against my better judgment I took her to the game and she was able to talk to her coach and other friends about it. They too had a chance to see that she was fine.
Fast forward to today: we received the call - Lilly is totaled. Lilly, you did a great job with the help of God protecting my baby and keeping her safe during that scary time. I am sorry that you did not fair very well. You may be replaced but you will always be remembered.
Oh yeah, it was B's birthday too, Happy Birthday Honey.
