I can’t believe it happened!
The clues are all there, beginning with three cars pulled to the shoulder. One glance and an experienced driver could recite the events.
The lead car wears a marred rear bumper. The second vehicle received the worst of it, a mashed in grill and wrinkled hood. The third auto blinks the red and blue lights of a police sedan.
Insurance information recorded, accident report form filled in, the drivers and passengers wait to resume their weekday. The officer distributes the papers, exchanges a few words and the first car drives away. The second car pulls out slowly, pulls the patrol car along by an invisible string to the first driveway and roomy parking lot.
My teacher, boss, spouse – won’t believe why I’m late this morning.
