I asked Chad to talk Kathrynne with him to the store so I could have some uninterrupted time to clean and get ready for the day. He was on his way home from Target and was going down 4800 N (or Foothill Dr) down by the Riverwoods. He got a green light and started across the intersection at University Ave when a guy ran the red light. He basically t-boned our car. His car hit ours right behind the front passengers wheel well. Our axle is bent pretty bad and it was leaking transmission fluid. The other car was worse. The scary part is that if Chad was hit a few feet farther back, it would have hit Kathrynne.
Our car got towed and will be transferred to Martin's Collision today. We have awesome car insurance from State Farm and our rental will be covered by them. What isn't covered (20% of the cost) we will be taking it to the other drivers insurance. Martin's Collision is a certified place by State Farm so we won't have to get an adjuster to go out and look at the car. From there we will find out if it is totaled or not.
The other driver admitted out loud to Chad, and the officer heard him say this as well, that it was all his fault. Let's just say that this has not been the best weekend. I am just extremely thankful that both Chad and Kathrynne are okay. I am thankful for my friend Emily picked me up and stayed with us and took us home. I will thank my lucky stars every day for the safety the Lord had given our family.
