On Saturday, I was driving home from a gig just before midnight, and I was stopped in the slow lane of the freeway due to an accident ... when I was rear-ended. Well, he tried to swerve into the next lane over but still clipped the corner of my bumper.
Everyone was fine, the cops there for the previous accident helped us exchange info, it took only 15 minutes or so. So, as far as midnight freeway accidents go, I am very very lucky.
But it made me feel vulnerable and reminded me that you can be doing everything right, and still be involved in an accident, maybe even a bad one. So even though it was not a big deal, I was a little bit shaken.
