Story: We were on the way to get Big J a vaccine that some how we had skipped and her daycare said that she needed or she could not stay there. Simple trip... or so we thought. Her doctor is is in an office complex off a fairly busy road. There is a road that runs parallel to the busy road that leads to the parking lot of all the office buildings. We were driving along (thankfully pretty slow) and we are about 10 -15 feet from a parking space. There is a small road that connects the road we are on to the busy road and we see a car coming but they have a stop sign. The next thing I know my husband is making a gasping sound and then the crunch sound of car hitting car. Our car spins and before I have time to do anything we are ramming into a light pole. When I get out I realize we are wedged between the light pole and a fire hydrant. What do I do? Make sure everyone is ok and then send my husband into the doctor with Big J while I call 911 and the insurance company. This all happened on Wednesday and come Friday I find out the the other driver (who admitted to looking at her GPS) gave the cop insurance that is actually no longer valid. It seems the car she was driving was taken off her father's insurance in October!!! (And she was able to drive her car away afterwards)
Thankfully I have uninsured motorist coverage and all I have to pay is a $100 deductible. I am thanking God that everyone was ok. Now 2 weeks and $7000 later my car will be fixed. Until then we have a Lincoln Towncar, aka: The boat, which is very fancy. We needed the room and because they are so busy around now they could not get us a minivan. Check out the pictures, oh year the fireman had to cut my car off the pole and hydrant!!

Hydrant (This is where Big J was)
Light pole smoking after we hit it. (The light came down after we hit it.)
