My friend John had a bad day today. While driving to work he had a car accident. He swerved to avoid being hit by another car that entered his lane without warning, but ended up in front of a large big rig traveling behind him in the next lane. He was clipped on the passenger-side rear quarter panel, and sent spinning out of control across the remaining lanes and down a 25-foot embankment, narrowly missing other cars and a few trees. His car was not visible from the freeway; it had plowed under heavy brush while ending up against a fence at the bottom of the embankment. John is lucky to be alive.
