Jennifer, this is just too much!

Even if Michael was not hurt, the damage to the car and all the trouble of getting it all fixed ........
Hope things get A LOT better for you SOON!

I can't believe that there was another accident that involved your family. I am glad that Michael is OK.

Jen, we need to get your kids into tanks, and all horrid drivers off the roads!

Holy Cats woman, you need a break. I'm glad he was ok, and that the driver was caught is awesome, especially since that lady went so far out of her way to help!

Here, try this

Update..... Michael told me it was a lady who hit him and they she was driving crazy with police chasing her after she hit him and they had to lay the spikes on the road to stop her. She was then injured and taken to the hospital. We're not sure if she was drunk or what the deal was. He only knows that much more now. But she either spent the night in the hospital or jail, depending on the injuries.

So glad that woman saw what happened and helped your son out. Too many people just look the other way and don't want to get involved.

It's just crazy...right? I am so thankful this lady helped and called the police.

But most importantly I'm glad your son was not hurt.
I am so sick of these last few months. I am grateful Michael is OK though. But such a pain. He already talked to his insurance guy and it sounds like they will get him in to be fixed immediately then go after this crazy driver for expenses, or her insurance company if she has it. As of today the police he talked to still didn't know if she did.

I am so glad Michael is fine. He said he's not even sore. He sent me pictures and it looks like a clean break off the front bumper, so though it's not good, it could be so much worse. We have God looking over us a bit I think.

I agree. I need a month long vacation to make things better!!!
I am very thankful he is not hurt...not to mention the fact that he is a man and a big baby when he is sick. LOL. But I really am happy he is perfectly fine.

I can't believe it either!!!! I am so over this whole accident thing. We need to get a new thing going for the family, like each of us winning the lottery. Thats a better trend!

Don't come to Ohio anytime soon. We have crazy drivers here!!! You would not believe how paranoid I have been lately with other drivers, I am sure it will be worse now.

Oh my! Poor Michael! I am glad he is ok, but what a headache! I am glad they caught the girl. I really cannot understand why people think this type of behavior is ok. We have had multiple hit and runs make the news here, with quite a few resulting in deaths. Hopefully his car won't take too long to fix.

How terrible, so glad that Michael wasn't injured. Dealing with all this won't be much fun. Someone hit me one time, took out the side of my, at the time, new car. I was the totally innocent party, but it took two years to get the at fault's insurance to pay up! Ack!

Jen- still catching up (sorry to hear about Michael) i have a random (maybe dumb) question and can't remember if I've seen this in any of your trip reports. I'm planning a quick two day trip with DS the day after Christmas, staying off-site, but my question is, can you use Disney gift cards to pay for your meals? I've made reservations for two Table service meals for our visit and would like to just buy some gift cards before the trip and not worry about using a credit card when we get there. thanks, Sue

OMG Jen! I am very glad Michael is OK and kudos to the lady who chased the offender and called on star! It really renews my faith in human nature when people actually want to get involved.

Thank goodness Michael is AOK! Sending good mojo your way!

Love your parade pics! I have to say the princesses look much better and more genuinely friendly here than from your last set of pics! No phony smiles!

I understand what you mean about the lights! They are just so magical, and even though the snow is fake, it's really cool trickery!

It's just been crazy here. I don't get it. I am so glad it wasn't as bad as it could've been though. I think he takes his car in on Monday to be fixed, but this place is never known to be fast and I have a bad feeling I'll be doing a lot of extra driving around this week.

I still haven't heard if she had insurance or not yet. I haven't talked to Michael in a few days now and he is never one to offer much extra info unless you ask. But this is such a pain in the butt!!!!

I agree! I am ordering it right now!
It's just crazy all the crazy wild drivers we have come into contact with over the past 2 months.

Yes you can!!! I have stayed offsite and used them too. They just want your money anyway they can get it. I often buy gift cards for that purpose too.

I keep meaning to go buy some tickets...I really need to!
on a good note, my Mom won a raffle for $5000 on Friday. She was pretty excited.

I am really happy this lady chased the other one down. That was so nice of her. There are a few good people out there still. Honestly, I don't know if I would've done that. One it could've been risky and two, I would just assume I should stop to make a witness statement.
