A Scary Day

Yesterday was a scary day for our family, my husband was in a car accident. Don't you hate it when someone from your family just leaves the house and a few minutes later you hear the sound of a siren? Well yesterday morning that is exactly what happened, my son Zachary had just left to catch the school bus and then my husband left for work. Right after I heard the sirens and then came the phone call from Dan saying that his truck was totaled. Of course my heart started beating out of my chest, until I heard the words "I'm OK though".
The roads were icy and slightly snow covered yesterday and as Dan was headed south, a man traveling north lost control of his truck, he was driving about 45-50 miles an hour when he went to change lanes and spun right into Dan. The impact was so hard that it knocked the other mans bed to his truck right off and smashed the whole front end of Dan truck completely in. Thank God for seat belts and airbags! Dan has a few gashes in his hand which is all swollen a lump on the back of his head and is sore all over, but hes going to be OK.
