    I was walking down the road yesterday. My van had run out of gas and I was walking to get some help (the one time I do not have my phone) When out of the corner of my eye I saw white and jumped sideways just as the mirror of a car hit my hip. I hit the ground hard and could not get up. I sat there for 20 min only about 50’ from my car before someone stopped to help. They helped me up and got my van some gas and I drove to the ER. I have a banged up knee, road rash that would make a young boy proud and a broken left wrist. I go tomorrow for the cast, right now its in one of those splints so it can swell. All in all I am OK, just really lucky.

    I'm so sorry to hear that!

    Curses on the SOB who hit-and-run. There's a special place for jerks like that.

    Get better soon!

    its good there was no serious damage. To bad there where no witnesses to see his licence plate. I woulda sued him for every penny. He did not even stiop huh? Thats just mean! I think this week is bad for everybody. I just cut all 4 of my fingers on my right hand and my palm on my left. All because of metal for the new shed

    Shelly, So sorry for that crud of a day. So somebody hit you and kept driving? If so, may a heap of chicken poop fall from the heavens upon their unsuspecting head. I'm glad you are going to be okay and that someone nice did come along and help.

    OMG I am so glad you are ok. I can't believe they didn't even stop. I hope the rest of their days are as horrible as they are.

    No the driver never stoped, but then again nether did the cop who passed me.....by the time the folks who did stop help me I had given up and hoped that my family would come looking for me later that night when I did not come home.

    Oh my goodness! What a mean person. And to think that even a policeman didn't stop. What is the world coming to? I wish that you hadn't gotten hurt at all, but at least you didn't get hurt really bad. I hope that you feel better soon! [​IMG]
