My husband was just in a 3 car accident. Apparently, there was something in the north bound lanes that caused a north bound car to swerve into the south bound lanes and hit the truck that was in front of my husband's car. The first collision caused the formerly northbound car to spin around a couple of times, still heading into the oncoming traffic. They hit my husband's car next despite his slowing and trying to avoid the scene. His car was totaled. Everyone in the first north bound car came out without injury. My husband has bruising and a bloody nose. But, the man who was driving the truck southbound and was hit first, died. He was not wearing a seatbelt. There were two other people in his truck with him that are hospitalized and should be okay according to the police.
The initial terror I felt when my husband called and told me he was in a 3 car accident, was replaced by relief and gratitude to God to hear he had minimal injuries. But, that has been replaced by grief for that poor man and his two passengers and their families. That man was in his own lane when a car just crossed over and hit him. I ask all of you who pray, please pray for this man's family and friends at this time of sudden shock and loss. He is with our Father now, but I can only imagine the grief and shock for those still here as they deal with this unexpected event. Also, please pray for his passengers to be healed and comforted. My heart goes out to them.
Oh, Lord. I just saw the story on the 10:00 news. The first driver that swerved to avoid an object in the dark road is 16. Please keep him and his family also in your prayers. http://www.rockymountainnews.com/news/2008/dec/06/one-dead-six-hurt-in-head-on-wreck/
