The scariest phone call a parent can get

Saturday morning at 1:30am...  "Hello, this is the Ft. Worth police...".  If those type of calls don't get your blood pumping, the scene of my daughters wreck 30 minutes later will. 

We arrive on the scene and I see the Honda Civic had been rolled and crushed.  My first thought was, "Who got killed?  How is Anna?"  Nobody got hurt.  She barely had a scratch.  Bumps and bruises, that's all.  Obviously, we are very thankful and she's VERY lucky to be able to walk away from this wreck.

Someone once told me to buy her a Civic, it may save her life.  I'm a believer.  Best investment I've ever made.

    Wow, good news though.  My daughter is of driving age now and she keeps asking what car is she going to get.  I keep joking that I’ve picked it out already…  a ’72 Buick Roadmaster with old tires slung on the side like a tugboat.  Those old Roadmasters are built tougher than an M1 Abrams.  I might just look for one afterall….

    Keith, it’s great that Anna was able to walk away from that wreck, especially with a rollover.  I’ve got a teenage daughter who will start driving next year so this really hits home.  I’ll definitely keep the Civic in mind when car shopping.  Thanks for sharing, and best wishes to you and your family! 🙂

    There is no question that this can be one of the scariest calls that any parent can ever hope to avoid.  Its unfortunate your family had to go through it but I am glad that your daugther is ok.
