Late monday evening my grand-daughter was coming home from work at Hungry Howies. She stopped for a 4-way stop. A drunk driver came up behind her and slamed into the back of her car. Then he backed up, turned around and left the accident. A little ways down the road he went off the road and drove into a fire hydrant. He tried to run away but was so drunk he didn't get very far.
Melissa is very sore. She says she hurts all over. She had her seat belt on. Her car is totaled. A young man from our church happened to come around the corner at the time of the accident so he helped her out of the car and stayed with her until help came.
We are so thankful to God for his protection. It could have been so much more serious than it was.
I would like to talk to the man who hit her. I pray that he will get help for his drinking before he hurts himself or someone else. I just wish that if someone has to drink they would know enough not to drive. How many lives have been hurt because of drunk driving.
