So last night, I was sitting on my couch minding my own business and watching some show on my laptop. Then I heard this really loud bang noise. It was weird, but like the traffic by my house makes all sorts of noises so I ignored it. Sometimes just a transport going by will shake my place so I’ve learned to let those things go. Even if it sounds strange.
But then the shouting happen. Oh man the shouting! But there is a bus stop literally right in front of my office window so, again, I’m used to it. It was 10pm on a Friday, probably drunken people or teens. But, because I’m nosy, I went to my bedroom window and looked out.
AND THERE WAS A CAR ON FIRE!!!
LITERALLY ON FIRE!!!
Flipped upside down and flames going everywhere and people shouting “GET AWAY FROM THE CAR!!” As if some people were actually stupid enough to be walking up to the car.
I immediately called 911, which I’m sure everyone else on the street was doing because I was looking out a different window and saw many people on their phones and the person was asking me all the routine questions like “is there anyone in the car” and all my answers were “I don’t know, I’m inside” and he knew that I was and wasn’t expecting me to go out but he has to ask. Thanks dude for being calm and doing a great job.
Just as he was finishing up, the fire trucks arrived which was awesome. And then I decided to take a little video. You can hear me kind of gasp in the middle, something was popping in the flames. But the firefighters had it under control.
Then I text my boss cos the gate outside my window was open and I just wanted her to know what had happened just incase she saw it on the news and then wanted to know why I didn’t tell her. About 10 minutes later I hear the front door go “door open” and I think it’s just her but it’s her AND all 4 kidlets! They were driving home from shopping and saw the accident and came over to drop shopping supplies and to see what had happened.
So I got to see my kids for about an hour, and talk all about the crash and what I heard and saw and I shared my video. And then I was outside in my pj’s with them for a little bit. Eventually it just ended up being like Dane Cook’s routine:
So after a little mingling and people talking we figured out what happened, the car on fire hit this blue car
And then the car that was on fire flipped three times up the hill, leaving pieces of the car flying EVERYWHERE, like the exhaust was on the other side of the partition, and then it landed on its roof and caught on fire.
I have no idea if there were survivors or what else happened, but at 12:30 when the scene was finally cleaned up, this was what was taken away:
So of course, I uploaded pictures and videos to Instagram and Twitter and Facebook lol! What a golden age to have something like this happen. I’ve been trying to find some news on it ever since I woke up but apparently it didn’t make the news? If you can find it, I’d love to read the actual reported details.
So that was my Friday night! How was yours?
