Please Don't Drink and Drive.

Saturday, June 16, 2012

Yesterday afternoon someone drove up onto the sidewalk in front of my office and hit two of our plant workers who were on their break. I don't know for a fact that he was drunk, but based on the evidence so far I would say he probably was. When we left work yesterday we had no idea if our coworkers will be alright. All that we knew is that they were both taken by ambulance to the hospital. I didn't go outside to see the wreck. I don't handle trauma well. My heart is broken for the people who are injured, for their friends, family and close coworkers. It makes me so angry to think that one man's selfish act can hurt so many.

Sorry to be a downer. I can't get this off my mind and thought blogging might help.

    I'm so sorry to hear this - what a terrible thing to happen! I'm very glad they'll be ok but I'm not surprised it would remain on your mind. I hope the driver is charged and punished.

    Wow. so sorry to hear this. It is never a good thing to experience in any way, certainly I will keep your coworkers in my prayers today and hope they will be alright. I hope your day goes a lot better today.

    Thank you all for your good thoughts. The two people injured are going to be OK. I found out later that they are brother and sister, so I am doubly glad they are both alright. She has two broken ankles and is in her 60's so probably a long road of recovery ahead. He is in better shape and has been released from the hospital. The driver wasn't arrested for drunk driving, but was cited for careless driving, without a license or insurance.

    Hard to put something like that out of your mind. Hope they will be ok.

    I hope blogging helps. I lost an aunt I was close to 5 years ago to a drunk driver.

    I pray your co-workers will be alright.

    AMEN!! Let me know if it makes you feel better. If it does, then I may try it later. I am having the same thing going on today. Something happened this morning That I can't let go of..SO I thought about blogging & then decided not to. But if it helps you I may try later if I don't feel any better. Hope it helps. Sending prayers for your co workers.
