The 411 after you've dialed 911.

"I'm in a car accident" Thats what I remember thinking during those seconds. Yesterday I was busted doing something I've been doing for years. Driving around in my van with no makeup on and improperly dressed. I was going to pilates and I was rear-ended driving in the driveway on the Guide. Here is some vital information about being in a accident in a small town. Bad news travels fast! I kinda thought of this and instantly called Bill who is out of town and I know would freak out. But in the age of texting, twittering and facebooking you need to tell your peeps you are ok instantly! My poor Levi got a text and bolted from school to my rescue. He said "mom you scared me!" So the first thing you need to remember is -drive around in your car prepared to see everyone you know. The second thing-tell your peeps instantly! And the third is you may feel like crap the next day and you will spend the entire day on the phone to insurance adjusters, caring friends(mainly my out of town hubby:), rental car companies and towing companies. BUT this is small stuff because everyone involved is going to be OK! Praise the Lord. I know pictures would have made this post much more interesting but the Golden Chariot(a name my snapsister gave my van) is not looking so good:( *** just got the call from the adjuster... she's a total loss.

Glad you and the other driver are doing OK. Sorry about the Golden Chariot, maybe you can replace it with a Silver Sleigh or Bronze (mercedes) Benz.

Totaled? I could have told them that immediately. A back smash and a front crash = Totaled!
Glad everyone is okay except for your neck and arms. Take it easy and use our hot tub!

It's usually better to have it totaled then having them say they are going to "fix it" - that never works - speaking from experience!! PTL you're ok - so sorry!! Go see Marla..........♥
