Thank you everyone....I hate it when drinking/driving accidents occur...it is senseless shame. To answer the questions:
PMom'* - I am doing fantastic! I am so thankful things turned out like they did. Yes, it stinks when stuff like this happens...but the alternate ending would have been...well... I would never be the same person, that is for sure. I got the call at 8am from my kid'* stepmom. She and I have a very good relationship (because we gang up on my ex since we both know him in the same capacity
) She handled the situation extremely well and I have total confidence in her ability to manage any crisis concerning the kids...this is the second one in 4 months that we have been through together.
It was not my house, rather the house across the road from my ex (I parked in his driveway, as shown in the pics). This is literally around the corner and down the road from me though. The gas meter was knocked off and the line ruptured. The gas company had to shut off the service to the house somehow, and the electrical company disconnected the lines right off the house to avoid posible fires.
I didn't see the vehicle, however I believe it was an SUV from what the step-mom told me. She could have been going as fast as she wanted since the road is total straight up until the bend that she failed to make. It goes right through town, but since she didn't remember leaving the bar, I doubt she was concerned about her speed.
Camera crews never made it out - however they did mention it (at least on the websites...I didn't see the news today.) And the Lockport AM radio station WLVL 1340 covered it, of course.
I bought a lottery ticket last night for the first time in a year...NYS MegaMillions.... I never buy them...maybe it'* a good thing I did.
