It was about a year ago today. I'm not sure what it really means, but I'm going to tell you about the car crash that could have happened right in front of my eyes.
I'm not sure where we were at the time, but last year. My family and me were going to a hotel. It was a local hotel close to where we live. We decided to go out to eat before we got to the hotel. When we got there, I saw this lady. She was an old lady, who looked to be around 70 or so. She got out of this car with this man. The car was green, but I'm not sure what type of car it was. I'm pretty sure that the man that was with her was her husband. Well, they went inside, and so did we. We ordered food but the lady and the man were just sitting at there table just talking I guess. The lady then got up to go use the bathroom for some unknown reason I followed pursuit. We were both in the bathroom and this lady came out of the stall, and left the bathroom. I didn't really have to go, or anything, I was just drawn to this little old lady for some strange reason. I couldn't explain it.
We left the restaurant a little after the lady and the man did. We were on our way to the hotel and we came to a red light at a four way intersection. My dad stopped the car. I looked out the window, and the lady and the man pulled up next to us. I looked up to the light, and it was still red. I looked at the clock, and it said 7:39. I looked back at the old lady. The light hadn't turned green yet, but the old man slammed on the gas and crashed head on with this other car across the street. I started to say something to my dad, because nobody was doing anything about it. No one was trying to help this couple. I looked over at my mom and then I looked back at the road and then my dad started to go. I started to yell at him, but he just told me to quieten down. I looked at the road again, and the cars were both gone. The lady's car was next to us again. They turned down this side road, and we drove straight ahead.
When we got to the hotel that night my mom put the news on as they were reporting a car accident that happened earlier that day. I looked at the screen and it just happened to be at the same intersection that we were at that day. It showed a little bit of the crash. I guess a helicopter was recording it or something, because it was up in the sky. They had said that the crash had happened at 7:44 p.m. That was almost 5 minutes after we left that red light. They had gotten closer to the crash with the cameras, and it showed that one of the cars was green, and it looked just like the old lady's car. A bystander came on and said that there was a lady and a man in one of the cars, and they had been in the green car that crashed. I wasn't completely sure if this meant anything or not, but I was in shock. I had just seen that lady not that long ago. I was just sitting there, in shock. I had no idea that that was going to happen.
I wasn't sure if the lady and the man were alive or not, and I still don't know. I wish that I did know. I liked this lady. She seemed nice. I hope she is still alive.
I'm not sure what to think about this anymore. It happened about a year ago. I haven't thought that much about it, but somehow, I thought that I was supposed to try and stop it from happening, but how could I stop a car crash? I had no idea. I still don't. And, I don't think I ever will.
