On Sunday 15/08/10 my Mother was driving home from work along a residential street, when a drunk driver shot out from a side street and hit her on her driver door at 60mph. He bounced the car sideways, through a metal street lamp which ripped a massive hole in the concrete, a metal street sign which did the same before slamming her into a building. She was trapped in the wreckage for an hour before being cut out by the fire brigade.
The drunk driver ran off from the scene with nothing but a nose bleed (he has now been caught by Police) and while she was still trapped another male was actually trying to break into her passenger side to steal her handbag from the seat beside her! (What happens to people to make them that way?!?!?) Thankfully she has no memory of the accident.
She was lucky enough to have no broken bones but as you can imagine she has massive soft tissue trauma / internal bleeding and whiplash from head to toe.
She has spent her whole life caring for others, sometimes in the worst situations imaginable, and has never asked for thanks. She retired a few years ago but even since then she has been volunteering at a convalescent home a couple of nights a week, which is where she was driving home from on the night.
Please, if you can, spend a few moments sending healing to her. Everyone who knows and loves her would be extremely grateful as she needs all the help she can get.
