We got rear-ended this afternoon on the way home. We were stopped at a light on 15-501 at Old Mason Farm Rd. The light turned green, we started moving. Traffic stopped, I stopped. In my rear-view mirror I saw the SUV behind me moving fast — and that the driver was turned, facing the back of her car. I knew she was going to hit us hard, but I couldn’t do anything. She slammed into us, the car shuddered and the rear window exploded. Trixie cried out.
I got to her almost immediately. She was shaking and scared, but not in pain. She got checked out and seems to be 100% ok. I’ve got some neck and jaw pain – I think because I saw it coming and clenched my teeth. The back of car is a mess. It protected us, but took a lot of damage. (It’s a Scion xB — it didn’t stand much of a chance against a
Pathfinder Landcruiser that, according to the police report, was going 20mph.)
I feel so blessed and thankful that nothing happened to Trixie. She is ok.
