News for Tuesday December 31st 2013


So here’s the last news of the year for you. I’m ending my year badly, got into a car accident this morning, hit a patch of ice and hit the guy in front of me. His car is ok, just a small dent and chipped paint but our car is much worse off. They should have been out salting the roads this morning but they weren’t. By the time we were done exchanging insurance info there were five other accidents in the same area so it wasn’t just me. I was driving driving slow and two car lengths behind the guy but just couldn’t stop. I’ve never been in an accident before and I feel bad. Oh whatever.. just read the news…
