Well, I can say I've probably had the most exciting day-before-graduation than anybody else can, but it's not the kind I'd prefer to repeat. Here's my story... Yesterday morning about 10:00 or 11:00 a.m., I left my house to go run errands in town. I run my errands, grab some lunch and head home to eat. I eat my lunch, then take my truck just down the road from my house to my g/f's work. I pick her car up, take it to get the oil changed, and leave the oil change place. This is where things get fuzzy. I turned onto the road heading back towards her bank. Incidentally, this road goes under the interstate that is currently under construction. Anyways, I turn onto the road, and this is the last thing I remember. The story that I've pieced together says that as I was approaching the intersection of the southbound on-off ramps for I-35, an 18-wheeler was in the left lane. I moved into the right lane to go past the 18-wheeler because there is a line of cars getting on the interstate. Somewhere was a flagman with a stop sign. I couldn't see the flagman with the stop sign because of the semi, so I kept going thinking I was OK. A car that apparently didn't see me coming or didn't know whether he was supposed to stop or not either started across from the off-ramp and hit me in the side. My g/f's car rolled 3 times, giving me a major concussion and multiple bumps, bruises, and scrapes (presumably road rash). Thankfully I had my seatbelt on. I ended up staying on the road with the car laying on the drivers side and all windows gone except the drivers rear window. I was well enough to crawl out of the car through the windshield, get in to the median and give approximately five phone numbers to firefighters and medics so they could call my family, although I don't remember any of it. All in all I'm ok, but I have two words: amnesia sucks There was one witness who was two cars behind the car the hit me. In his rather dramatic words, the car "just pulled out". Whether or not this means he was supposed to go or wasn't supposed to go has yet to be determined. Another witness left her number with a medic, who then gave the number to an officer. That number has yet to be found. The flagman was a mexican and a translator wasn't found until later. The kicker to this whole incident? It was number one of FIVE (yes that is the number 5, F-I-V-E) accidents to occur at the exact same intersection on the exact same day within approximately 5 hours of each other. Is something wrong with this picture? Now for a question to any lawfully minded folks out there (police officers, lawyers, anyone who knows traffic law well, etc.).... Do I have a chance at a suit against the state or against the company that employs this flagman? Everyone that I've heard (and it's in the police report) says that where the flagman was standing, it would have been impossible for me to see him, thereby making it impossible for me to stop. At any rate, the road I was traveling on has no stop signs, yield signs, lights, NOTHING on the road to make me even think someone else would have the right-of-way, plus I've lived in this town all my life and travel the road quite frequently and know it well. Obviously something is very wrong if there are five accidents at the very same intersection within a matter of hours. Anyhoo, thanks for any comments beforehand. P.S. For the record, I was going just around the speed limit this time, instead of my usual 5 over--the traffic was too heavy for me to push it. Also, all I want out of the suit is for my g/f to get a truck like she wants.
