Thank you, Lord!
After hearing about my nephew's wife's car wreck I cringed when I heard James telling about his evening ride last night. It seems that the man in front of James slammed on his brakes and came to a stop. Our son slammed on his brakes and came to a stop. Whew! The person behind James slammed on his brakes and James wondered if he was going to be able to stop. But, he did, stopping about a foot or so from James' car. It was the man behind THAT man that was the problem. He came barreling along and tried to swerve and miss the man behind James but was unable to do so. This particular man was in a SUV and ended up hitting the car behind James. From what I can understand the SUV swerved and by doing so, the SUV's left front end hit the car. By all intents and purposes it should have caused the car to hit James' car, however, the car was totally pushed out into the other highway lane! It didn't touch James' car at all! Both of the people in the respective cars that were involved were able to get out and walk and didn't appear to be hurt. I imagine there will be some soreness of muscles but I praise the Lord, for it could have been much worse with the high rate of speed the SUV was going.
