More Than A Miracle
What baffled those who were at the accident scene was not how lucky the occupants were to survive the crash without even a scratch, but how did they manage to land the vehicle on that fallen tree! I still wonder how that happened.
February 6, 2014 was a sunny day. The roads were dry and there was no snow or ice anywhere to be seen. Though the posted speed was 35mph, the car was cruising at a steady 25mph. The curve ahead seemed clear and dry and the speedometer dipped to about 20mph as I took the right turn. Suddenly I lost control of the car as it skidded all over the road. In a split second, the vehicle jumped the curb and sped down a hillock towards a stream 20 feet below. I thought I was going to hit a tree or a rock. Nothing was on the path to break the fall. And it all happened in a jiffy.
As the car stopped abruptly, I came to my senses and found myself still in the seat and without bodily injury. I sat there dumfounded. Slowly it dawned on me that I was not alone. And not out of danger yet. I looked at my wife who was still in her seat intact but equally dumfounded and without any bodily harm!
The rescue crew from the County Fire Department that arrived soon after had only one word for us: “Someone up there is looking after you!” Thank God for that someone whoever it was.
