Chickens on the Roof and Car Accident.


The roof of the chicken house is right outside my dining room window and I regularly see the girls looking at me through the glass. It's a good substitute for having birdfeeders out there as I did in the past.

I have been busy lately with company and dealing with my latest legal battle, but three days ago I had a terrible incident happen. I struck a girl as I was driving through Pleasant Point on my way back from Bangor. She was hurt bad enough to be taken to Bangor by ambulance, and apparently had surgery. She's home now and pretty much recovered. Although no one blames me for the accident (the girl ran out into the road without looking to see her friends across the street), I was quite shaken by it all. The girl lay on the road with people screaming and crying all around her. Cell phones were at every ear calling the police and ambulance. I was treated with kindness by everyone involved and the policeman who handled the case called me the next day to make sure I was all right. Ever since it happened, though, I keep seeing that blurr of the girl appearing directly in front of me and hearing the sound of the thud when the car hit her. I swerved to avoid her, but there was no time to stop it from happening.

Word spreads quickly in a town like this and I am considerably comforted by the concern people have shown me. Nevertheless, it is certainly something I will never be able to completely put it behind me.

Oh, Cheri. I had heard about this accident, but had no idea you were involved. I'm so sorry to hear it. It must have been so frightening. I'm glad you were treated well by those involved.

Although its your mistake you dont have any sense that while driving not to see here and their but you continuously watching chickens on the roof are you out of your mind.The price of one's life is more important then watching chicken.

Even though you are not totally at fault here, I’m sure it must’ve been a traumatizing incident. The sight of it will somehow make a mark on you. My cousin had the same experience, but in his case the guy was riding a motorcycle. A second later the guy is almost underneath his car. He surely was shaken by the incident so now he is being extra extra cautious of his driving.

How are you Cheri? I do hope that you have somehow gotten over the car accident by now. But it is good to know that you and the girl are both okay. It is nice of the people not to judge you wrongly for what happened and are even comforting you. I’m sure that this has also caused a bit of trauma for you as much as it did to the victim.
