After the car I’m driving last Friday afternoon, July 31, was hit by a speeding bus, I’m glad to be alive. Alive with just minor cuts and bruises on my face and body, and a fractured collar bone.
But if you saw my car, you will think I didn’t survive the accident. The blue Mazda MPV, named “Sky” by my daughter, is a total wreck.
The incident, or accident, happened at the intersection of Bank of Hawaii and Smiling Cove Marina at around two in the afternoon.
I was waiting for the stop light to turn green. When I saw the green light, I went ahead and started to drive. Out of nowhere, a speeding tourist bus, heading North of Saipan, rammed the van that I’m driving. My one-week old car was a total wreck, unrepairable.
This time, the reporter who regularly writes news, became part of the news.
Thank you for your help former Saipan Tribune sports reporter Brad Ruszala and to the men and women of EMS and CHCC.
