My wife's accident.

The good news she's alright, as is the baby.

Last Friday (10/20), Kristine was on her way to work and she got rear ended by a BMW on I-25, in the DTC. It was bumper-to-bumper traffic, so the speed wasn't too fast, but it really shook her up, emotionally. Once we got confirmation from the Doc that the baby would be fine, all was well in the Turner household.

Here are a few pics of the damage.

What's wrong w/this pic you might ask....LOOK AGAIN! It's the rear wheel.


Lower control arm.






Not sure how, he put a golf ball sized hole in her tail light.




Total damage.......just under $4k. I think his insurance might go up, just a tad!

Definately glad to hear all is well with her and the baby. I bet the BMW was probably on their cell phone or something too....

Glad she's okay Nick...guess I should check the club section more often :

Tell her to take it easy for a few days. Soreness will probably set in soon. Give her a big hug from all of us.

Thanks guys. She's just fine. She's actually getting some energy back that she lost during the first trimester. Thank God...There have been no signs of soreness.
