Car - manure applicator accident

These were taken about a month or more ago...I just now got around to posting them. A Dodge Neon struck the back of the 6000 gallon manure applicator north of here in Lucas County. Our Humeston Fire Dept and First Responders were called out. Fortunately, no one was killed, but the driver of the car did require (as I was told) reconstructive surgery. The manure applicator did have his flashing lights on, but it appeared that the driver did not see them. The driver was medi-vac'ed to Mercy via helicopter - it landed on the high school football field in town.

Flashing lights or not, how could he miss the thing? A blind curve or hill or something? It's not like it could have jumped out of the bushes and darted in front of him.

Yeah, I agree - it was pretty flat and straight where the accident happened, and it wasn't foggy, just overcast. It's not a commonly travelled road, so the driver may have thought she was in the clear and sped on. Not a smart move, unfortunately.

You know, I probably shouldn't talk since I happened to run over my own mailbox this afternoon. Blowing snow blinded me as I was turning so I sorta have an excuse. It's a pretty sad state of affairs when you run over into your own mailbox though. I'm just thankful no neighbors were driving by to see me do it.

She is just another druggy that will get some big insurance settlement. Her and her man don't even work. They live off of his parents. She was probably stoned at the time!!! Harsh and cruel yes, but true.

Anonymous 12:24AM - Since you know so much about the victim, why do you give us an update on her condition?

Yes, she might not be an upright and outstanding citizen (I don't know her personally), but dang it, you still have to have sympathy to her. No matter what her lot in life is, having facial reconstructive surgery is not a great thing. Maybe this incident will be a turning point in her life toward becoming a better person.

Turning point in her life? I doubt it. Her "man" who is really a wolf in sheeps clothing, wrecked his daddy's car the other day on his way over to pick up drugs at the same house where she was headed. Talk about God suddenly? God is a powerful and fearful God. This is just his way of showing Kharma!
