I was struck by an uninsured motorist this week [View all]

I had to stop for oncoming traffic that couldn't wait for a safe, clear place to pass and was in my lane. As I was stopped, a car struck me from behind. Were they o a cell phone? I have nothing to indicate that they were.

My car was totaled as was the other car and the driver was injured. I fortunately walked away with nothing more than a stiff shoulder from where the seatbelt did its job, everything I had in the vehicle was thrown forward.

I exited my vehicle and took one look back and knew it was bad and called 911.

I just received word from the police that the driver did not show proof of insurance.

I had to have wheels, fortunately, I have good insurance who are taking care of me with the process, renting a car for me. That alone is a story I will tell about Enterprise some time. They are also working on the process of recovering the value of my car.

How do people take that kind of risk, not having insurance? This person will now be held accountable by the insurance company as well as the law and the car they were driving looked like it was a newer Toyota.

I was feeling sorry for the young person until I found out that they are the reason my insurance is so damn expensive.

Always carry uninsured motorist and always wear your seat-belts.
