We hang by a very slender thread.
I just got off the phone with my father. My sissy, brother-in-law, niece and nephew - all precious to me beyone measure - are on the road and barely missed intimate involvement in an horrific tragedy. This morning they were about an hour east of Little Rock on the highway when a Ford Explorer came across the median from the other direction heading directly for their truck. Brother-in-law did some heroic driving and missed the oncoming vehicle in what must have taken off a layer of paint. Their windshield is broken, and there is all manner of scratches and cosmetic damage to the vehicle and tire damage from detritus in the road. My sister had been asleep and heard debris hitting the car. The Explorer driver had fallen asleep. They pulled over on the shoulder and several 18 wheelers behind them stopped too, saying he must have done some mean driving to avoid impact - they couldn't believe what they saw.
Sissy stayed in the car and called 911 as Brother in law went down into the ditch where the Explorer lay, cubed like a foil pack into the size of a compact car, and the driver was climbing up up the ditch side crying and screaming that he'd killed his sister. Indeed, my super-tough ex-Marine BIL said the sight of it was the worst thing he's ever seen.
I'm so sorry for that man and I'm sorry for his sister and their whole family, but right now I am so thankful mine are ok.
