It was only a matter of time before the shit awful drivers on I-95 between DC and Philadelphia nailed one of us. Bitter called me and told me she had been rear ended. She’s OK, but the car is screwed. Don’t know if she’ll be able to make it up now. Might have to go in a rescue mission, though she says the car is drivable, but I don’t know how drivable. More later.
UPDATE: Bitter called me back.Â She’s resumed her journey.Â The MD State Trooper said the car was road worthy.Â Doesn’t sound that bad.Â They hit the rear tire and shattered the windshield. Â The door is probably toast, but the main body, I’m thinking, is probably OK. Â Door and window will have to be replaced. Â The question will be whether to get it done here, and have her rent a car to take home, or drive the car home and get it taken care of there.Â The State Trooper said it was the 9th accident today, the tenth happened while Bitter was off to the side, and she witnessed it. Â I’ll need to be careful when going through Baltimore. Â In my experience, drivers along the I95 corridor in the Northeast are among the worst in the country.
