The One with What the Flip?


Saturday, March 27, 2010

There's never a dull moment in South Pas! Picture this: it was 9:30pm on a Friday night. Chris and I were just getting settled for the night watching Prison Break season 4 in our room, all the animals were asleep, and that was the end of that. Or so we thought... All of a sudden we heard a "Blang! Blam! Bling!" Rachel jumped about a foot in the air. I thought maybe Joey had just knocked something over in the kitchen but Chris thought someone was trying to break in. He immediately hopped out of bed and started to investigate. No sooner had his feet exited our room than we heard the "bleep bleep" of a cop car siren and Chris ran to our big living room windows which face a very busy and noisy street. He said to me, "Oh my goodness. Paige. You have to come see this." I replied, "What is it?" "I can't explain, you just have to come see for yourself." So I begrudgingly put on my slippers and joined him at the window. This is what I saw:

An upside down car in the middle of the street!

A) HOW DID THIS HAPPEN? There were no other damaged cars so it wasn't a collision. It happened in the center of a straight road, so not like he/she was speeding around a corner. How does a car just flip over in the middle of the street? We are so mystified and stumped. It didn't look like it hit a tree or the grass divider in the middle of the road. Ahhhh! I wanna know!

B) How did the cops get there so flippin' fast? Literally five seconds after the crash we heard and saw the flashing lights. It only took about 30 seconds for four other cop cars to arrive on scene and about 5 minutes for two firetrucks and an ambulance to get there. Maybe they stay close to liquor stores on Friday nights?

C) How did the driver get out alive (though I'm very glad he/she did)? The top of the car was totally smooshed. There were a bunch of people standing around whom I can only assume was the driver as the ambulance people weren't crowding around the car but rather joining this huddle of people.

I guess some mysteries will forever remain unsolved.
