Angel: I was in this accident. It involved a nissan, a ford explorer, a geo tracker and a mini-van. The tracker flipped and hit the van (which we were riding in). The driver of the tracker (which rolled over) crawled out the passenger side window and walked to the opposite side of the road, he was taken to the hospital for evaluation. The driver of the explorer was very depressed about the accident, the driver of the nissan and her passengers (two teen girls and a teen boy) were upset as well. No idea who caused the accident due to the fact that everyone was hitting their brakes pretty hard. The passengers of the mini van 7 in all (myself included) have whiplash and minor cuts and bruises.
DFO: Huckleberries Online first reported this accident, off the police scanner, at 11:32 a.m. Thursday here. I appreciate Angel's update -- and that she's all right. Indeed, online community journalism adds a dimension that the dead-tree media rarely ever does: eyewitness reports from survivors of what would be dismissed as "minor" accidents. When you're involved, there are no minor accidents.
