You’re alone, you’re female, and you’re involved in a hit-and-run, what do you do?
Danielle Smith shares her experience with Bruce Kenyon.
“You were involved in an automotive accident yesterday?” asks Kenyon. “Tell us about it.”
Not only did Smith scold her hand with tea on Tuesday, but her car was hit while she was driving.
“I just wish this week could start over,” she says.
Last night Smith had a late meeting and decided to take a different route on her way home.
“I’m sitting in the turnoff to get onto Crowchild from the Marda Loop area…and some dude in a black, looked like an F-150, came and rammed me from behind,” she says. “(Then he) drives and looks at me, and it looks like he’s shouting at me, and then he zooms off.”
Smith wasn’t injured, but her car’s brake light, signal light and back hatch were damaged.
Sitting in her Ford Escape after being hit she wondered, “what am I supposed to do?”
“You were probably smart not to chase him,” says Kenyon.
For now Smith is filing a police report and driving her husband’s 1998 Jimmy to work.
