My Dad Got a Wake-up Call From Someone Asleep

Yesterday morning early, Dad left to prowl the roads and see if he could see why the power was off at the house. After cruising eastbound down Hwy. 90, he decided to turn and go back home. He had slowed to about 30 mph when BLAM! he got hit from behind.

The gentleman who was driving this Mazda pick-up had fallen asleep at the wheel. Thanks to seatbelts and an airbag, he walked away from the accident. My Dad's only injury was a cut on his wrist from his watchband when it broke. Unfortunately, both vehicles are totaled.

Oh, goodness!
I'm glad your dad is okay.

What a wake-up call for all of us. (Bad pun...sorry!)
