Another Accident

Son was in another accident.  Nobody was injured, but he was cited, so he likely will lose his license until he's 18.

Son was pulling out of the driveway, nose first, with friend Ashton in the car.  He turned left, but he didn't see an oncoming pickup truck coming from the left.  The other truck locked its brakes and collided with Son's back end.  Son spun 90 degrees and ended in the ditch on the other side of the road.

The other driver's skid marks were 107 feet long.  The speed limit on our road is 35 mph.

Hmmmmmm, and how many feet before that did his foot start for the brake and how many feet before that did he register he needed to stop.
Me thinks somebody else should have been sited TOO!

Must have been very scarey for both boys.

That sucks. :( Glad they're all ok though. Sorry to you guys too, since it means extra work of pickups and drop offs for you now. Yuck.
