I wasn't home from work very long yesterday when the phone rang. It was Craig. "Don't be alarmed, Caleb is OK, but he's been in a car accident". WHAT!!!??? After Craig assured me again that Caleb was OK he proceeded to tell me that Caleb ran a red light and hit another car on his way home from school. Then my next question.... "Is everyone in the other car OK?". Yes, they were fine too. After the initial shock wore off then my heart was breaking for Caleb. Not his new car.... his dream car that he's had less than 2 weeks! This kid is almost 20 years old, never been in trouble a day in his life, never a speeding ticket, never an accident. How could this happen?
The photo is decieving.... looks repairable, huh? After hauling it to the body shop today it's been determined that they are totaling the car. $8,000 worth of damage and the car is worth about $6,500.
I keep telling myself... It's only a car and what's most important is that Caleb or no one else was hurt. These are the most scary times of being a parent.
