hi everyone, last August my husband and his friend were driving when a drunk driver came out of nowhere FAST and hit them (he was coming out into the street from the parking lot and he hit the oncoming side of them). This was a rented vehicle they were in at the time since we had just moved.
Here’s some background - this is a group of heavy drinkers. One died 2 years ago after one of their drinking sessions in a drunk driver collision. So, on his death anniversary the drinking buddies got together and drank away the whole day -literally. The bar tender didn’t want to say so he could avoid trouble, but people in the bar said the guy had at least 14-15 drinks before smashing into the truck.
Now the guy is in a permanent coma. We have kept in touch with our friend about this who has been in contact with the girlfriend a little while ago, so we know he is still in the coma and it’s prob permanent.
So, the insurance hasn’t been able so far to get anything from his insurance so now they have wrote us and said we will owe over three grand if they can’t get it soon from the other insurance - well, we can’t afford that - we can barely afford next months rent with taxes paid and how the economy is going.
While I pray for him to recover (and so do others we know and maybe some of you :)), and I feel horrible, but we shouldn’t be saddled with this burden when this guy was drunk and reckless. Please pray that they get this money from his insurance and that we won’t have to pay for this. Also, please pray for this guy and that his buddies don’t repeat the same mistake that took two of their friends lives (one physically and one mentally). I have a sinking feeling none of them have learned a lesson.
