I was a witness to an accident that happened directly in front of me this morning. And I wish I had my Treo in my hands to document it, because I had a feeling that it was going to happen right before it did.
There was one car, a Subaru wagon, directly in front of me, and another car, a Nissan Sentra, to its right. And as we made our right turns onto the two-lane onramp to the freeway, both of those cars stopped because the slow lane was blocked by a fire truck, which had been called to deal with a situation with another vehicle that had pulled over to the right shoulder.
So what happened next?
Both cars proceeded slowly, with each driver thinking they had the right-of-way, and the Sentra wound up plowing into the right side of the Subaru! It actually wasn’t that bad an accident as it sounds, but I couldn’t believe what I had seen, nor that I wasn’t taping it with my Treo!
