This morning I was witness to a three-car pile-up.
Okay, to be fair, it wasn't really a pileup. It was more like a three-car fender bender.
The driver of the car directly in front of me at the light in Edwardsville, upon seeing the light turn green, decided to immediately jump on the gas and speed through the intersection.
There was only one problem with this plan: The car in front of her was stuck behind a long line of cars waiting for the next light. It was only about fifteen feet ahead of the woman driver in front of me.
She smacked the car in front of her without even hitting her brakes. This collision knocked car number two into the back of car number three.
After a couple of minutes while everyone stood around making sure nobody was hurt, I gave a business card to each driver in case they needed a witness, and went to work.
