Friday the 13th

We had a pretty interesting Friday! I was sitting at work at about 4:15 and got a call from Chase saying “Don’t panic, I am fine, but I just got in a pretty bad car accident and my truck is on it’s side in the middle of I-15.” Oh. Ok. And I am not supposed to panic. So I of course panicked. All I could do was ask him if he was ok, I was in shock. So I got off the phone with him and panicked more because I didn’t even ask him where he was or any of the details. Well it turns out he was driving southbound on I-15 and a lady lost control of her car and hit one other car, slid across the freeway into Chase’s truck, spun him sideways and the truck tipped over and skidded down the freeway for a while. Yeah. And he did not even have a cut or bruise on him. None of the glass in the truck even broke. He was so blessed and we feel so grateful that he was not hurt. He has had a pretty sore back for the last few days, but we will take that any day! It was pretty crazy and he just kept saying all night “did that really happen?” And then I pretty much mauled him for the next couple of days :) I couldn’t get enough of him and I just wanted to be right next to him constantly! I think I drove him a little nuts. So those are the pictures, it’s a pretty crazy sight! One of the guys Chase works with told him that if anyone ever tries to tell him that Friday the 13th is unlucky, he can show them these pictures and tell them he walked away without a scratch!! So it was a pretty crazy day but we are so grateful that he is ok and that no one else was hurt either.
