I think I just cheated death a few minutes ago.
I was driving home and about to make a left turn onto my street when I decided to check the driver side mirror (I don’t know why I decided to do this, maybe I noticed the headlights).
In the mirror I saw a car heading towards me, traveling against traffic, and going very fast. I was confused so I paused for a moment. In that moment the car hurtled past me on my left. It went fast enough for my car to shudder in its wake. After the car passed I noticed the police car in pursuit. I finished my turn quickly to get out of its way. I’ve never seen a police chase, first time for everything I suppose. :eek:
I have no idea why I’m typing this. No one around to share the story with I suppose. Really, I’m in a bit of shock. I don’t think I’ve ever been that near to death. If I hadn’t checked the mirror I’m sure that the car would have hit me…
wow… sorry for any typos. Hands a are a little unsteady right now.
