Police Report

Its about time! Finally got my hands on the police report for the accident. Turns out the kid was 16! and his little brother for a passenger was 13. There should be a law! Actually I thought there already was a law in New Mexico that drivers that young were on a provisional license or permit and could only drive with another licensed driver in the car and not after dark or something. If there isnt, well there should be. Never mind that I got my license when I was 14, do I sound old? heh.

Judging by what the report says theres no way the other party could get out of this one or try fighting it. His story nearly matches mine word for word, well at least he was honest.

They also had this picture for the last page. Not entirely accurate, collision occurred in the right of the lane near the shoulder area, but close enough to get the general idea.

I’ve called State Farm again, they are still waiting to get ahold of the other party. Supposedly they’ve called them like 12 times and sent letters and never gotten a response. They were also waiting on the police report to proceed without them. Luckily I have a copy! so they just had me fax them mine so they can get on this sooner.

Things are starting to looking up. I hope I’m not waiting on a payout too long, I’m going to start ordering stuff now so I’m not waiting months for parts I need like has happened before and be stuck come July when we’re supposed to be leaving for the big trip.

  • I’m surprised to see the report from the police on the website that Tim has posted. Of course there drwaing they did was pretty different story that I seen in my mind and picture. They pretty much got it backwards. Oh well, it just another small mistake on there part. I think we’ll live with what they got so far. At least the kid was very straight forward on his statment. I try not to look back to the accident. I am trying move forward without nightmares and imgaes of the accident every night I sleep. I am getting more stronger and tuff about it, think of it funny story now. So, I’ll just laugh about it in mind now and think it a movie that just happened. Yeah – if Tim wasn’t there with me. I would be in a nerves wreck for months but he was there to say ” Your going to be ok, fine “. Me i’m like are you sure of that honey…I have to recheck myself to see if I am going to live ok through the mess”. Hmm – I see myself standing next to a motorcycle and thinking ” am I brave to get back on the bike again or am I still fragile inside to take that step again?” That’s my question to myself everyday I see a motorcycle go by me. I keep wondering how Tim just get through it so fast and now he is stronger to get back on the bike again. Of course Tim told me ” It’s like falling off a horse”. Well, he is right about that. All I need to do is get back on that horse and keep on riding, no matter how many times you fall off. You keep teaching and learn as you ride or fall. You keep trying and never give up on your faith and hope. So, I guess I just said it to myself here and now I need to focus on that everyday. I believe for sure. Yep…I always need courage on this everyday. No bad judgement on this.
    Wish me luck on this.
