She wasn't driving but she was in the front seat in her boyfriend's car on the way home from school.
A lady rear ended the car in front of her which propelled that car into "my" kids car. *My daughter & boyfriend have been dating for 2 years so he's like my kid at this point.*
The cars were at a complete stop when she hit them. They called me immediately after the accident and asked me to come there. My daughter's boyfriend's parents were both at work and I work from home so I able to get there quickly.
They had been waiting there for about 15 minutes when I arrived. I made sure that they were all okay. They said that the lady didn't even get out of her car at all or even talk to them. She got out when I got there and I had a little chat with her. To make a long story short from the looks of things, she totaled her car, the kid's car whom she hit directly and my daughter's boyfriend's car needs a new bumper, back quarter panel at the very least. The kid who's car who was directly hit said when he looked back after he was hit said he was pretty sure that he saw that lady on the phone.

Thankfully it wasn't worse than it was and now they all unfortunately know what it is like to be in an accident. As mom I will never bitch and moan about the high cost of driver's ed. It paid off yesterday.

Do you remember your first car accident? Did it change you as a driver/passenger for life?
