So, as you all have been warning me it would, the shit has finally hit the fan. On the way home from dropping Colleen off at work,driving in the rain, the red '99 Ford F-150 in front of me stopped short, and my BFGoodrich tires and non-ABS brakes just couldn't stop me. Hit the truck, hard, freaked out, and drove the truck home with the entire motor pushed back so far the transmission was stuck in third gear.. The police came to my house, gave me the citations for "Leaving the scene of an accident with property damage" ,"Operation of a motor vehicle after license suspension", Operation of a motor vehicle without insurance", and "Operating an unregistered motor vehicle", and confiscated the plates. May Lollette rest in peace. On the upside, she was able to retain her dignity by getting back to the house of her own volition. She was always so strong. I'm going to miss her so much. :-(
I'm sorry to hear about the truck, but I'm glad you weren't hurt. I know you can't really afford it, but get a lawyer. You can afford the consequences of not being represented or poorly represented in court far less.
We love you.
