Mellow Yellow got Boo-Boos
"Jumping Jehosophat," I exclaimed. "That sounded like it was right in front of the house! I better go see what happened."
What happened was a Pontiac Bonneville driven by a COCC student hurrying down our street swerved to the right to avoid an oncoming car. By doing so, he hit the driver's side rear of a 1975 VW bus parked along the curb, driving the bus over the curb, into our driveway, and striking my 1984 VW camper van, Mellow Yellow.
No one was hurt. The driver was plenty apologetic. His dad showed up after a bit and he was plenty apologetic. The driver had insurance. The owner of the bus that he hit had insurance. I have insurance. The police wrote up a report, citing the boy for careless driving.
The Bonneville and the 1975 bus were hauled away on two flatbeds.
A good time was had by all.
