After two months of patient waiting, my new car finally arrived. Much to my children's delight they now can once more be driven to and from school and to all their various activities. Car prices when down over the last few months and so it was a timely decision. However the event leading toward that decision had not been pleasant. For the first time in my 23 years of driving I had a traffic accident. A car crossed onto my path at the major traffic junction. I had the right of way while he was making a right turn at his discretion. So shaken was I after the incident when I found myself smack at the middle of the junction. With the engine still running, I trottled off to the nearest road kerb!!! I was not thinking?? Yes, panic gripped me, I wanted to get away from the maddening rush of the cars went the lights turn to favour the opposite direction. My daughter was in the car with me. My thoughts were only on her safety.
The traffic police arrived, the driver had it all orchestrated. Insisting that he felt nausea. Sent to the hospital. All this while I could not speak or think sensibly. I was in silence. The driver started accusing me of running the lights. Running the green light??
Must I be raving mad screaming to justified that I was not wrong??
It is now my words against his.
How can I let it be known that I had done no wrong?
