Whew, what a day we had on Saturday. Lee and I drove to Grande Prairie, which is a 2 1/2 hour drive from here, to go see his Dad and about 1/2 hour from GP, someone crossed the centre line and came towards our truck. I wasn't driving, so I didn't see them until right before... I'm still in shock as to how it all played out. I saw the truck coming right towards our front left and next thing I knew, Lee swerved and they took out our mirror. The really surprising thing is that the only thing damaged was the driver's side mirror. There were rub marks all the way down the side of our truck, but no other damage. At those speeds, I'm amazed we didn't have a head-on. It all happened so quickly. Someone was looking out for us. They had to be because that truck was too close to not hit our front end. I can still see it extremely vividly.
We pulled over a few seconds later after driving over a little hill in the highway, discussing what to do. Lee saw what we believed to be the truck come back over the hill behind us, pull over and get out to pick something up off the highway, and get back in their vehicle. They waited for traffic to pass and then blew a U-turn and took off. I'm still PO'd that they didn't come to talk to us. Wow. We ended up continuing on our day, mirrorless. We looked over the truck after we got to my Father-in-law's and I found a piece of black plastic from either their mirror or ours tucked inside the gas flap. Weird.
In talking with Lee, he said he looked in the rearview mirror and saw that these people were completely in our lane once we swerved out of their way. He also said that they weren't passing anyone and couldn't figure out what happened because he swore that the driver was looking straight forward, but we'll never know what really caused it.
The wierdest part for me is that I have had a feeling all last week that while driving, people were coming across the center line at me, but they really weren't. I just thought my imagination was over-reacting for some reason. And I didn't react to the accident the way I thought I would. Instead I was really quite calm and I haven't had that feeling anymore of people crossing the line since then. I'm more relaxed now.
Once again I'm reminded that I really need to learn how to listen to my "feelings" better. I can't seem to differentiate what is just a feeling to what is really going to happen. Next time I get the repetative nagging thoughts/feelings, I'm going to listen. :)
