Wow. The bus I in was sideswiped by a van.

I was (just now) on my way to an appointment; I had just gotten on the bus. After confirming with the bus driver that I was on the right bus, he pulled out. I was not yet sitting and all of a sudden there was a huge BANG. The bus had hit the side of a van, the driver's side window cracked, the bus' side mirrors torn off. I was almost thrown to the ground on impact, but caught a bus rail. The bus driver called his people immediately and had to be told by the police that he need to re-park to not block the road. Police were already there for another incident.

I could tell that the driver was in shock; I am in shock. Hearing the police man tell the driver to stop talking to his person, reminded me of when I got hit by a car all most a year ago. "Madame, get off your cell phone, Madame, we need to talk to you now, Madame."

I got off the bus as soon as I could; went home and called to reschedule my appointment.

My body got wrenched when I was thrown (but caught myself). Good thing I have bath salts.

WOW. Scary. No one was hurt.

We need Jesus and the Holy Angels every moment of our days.

Thanks! Nothing a good soak won't cure, I'm sure! It was scary, but you know the great thing about it is that I know how to articulate that it was scary and that by God's grace we are all okay. The poor bus driver. It happened so fast and I do not think it was his fault or least not fully. That would be a fairly bad day for him I think!
