Every day in the United States…
120 people die in traffic crashes.
7,500 people are injured in traffic crashes.
17,000 traffic crashes are reported.
Thankfully, on Friday The Wife, The Boys, and those other people were only counted in the latter category.
After failing to yield her left turn on a 40mph road the girl called her mom instead of the police.
If I had been there I would have asked her if she was talking on her cell phone while she could have been yielding.
