We are at Stony Creek Resort and CG in Greenville, VA. Will take post pics tomorrow. Too tired today.
We left NJ at 7:30 this morning, arriving here at 2:30. Most of the drive was uneventful. BUT - we were driving WB on I70 about 30 miles east of Frederick MD. Suddenly we saw what appeared to be two cars sideswiping each other in the EB lanes. It was so fast we could not tell really what was happening. The car on the onside maintained control and pulled to a stop.
We watched in horror as the car on the inner lane lost all control. First it made a half turn midlane still in the EB lane. Then it seemed to pick up speed and crossed the medium. It then crossed both WB lanes directly behind our fiver. Had Len tapped his brakes when we first saw what was happening we would have been broadsided taking out our home and possibly the truck too. Not to mention US. I looked out at the outside mirror and saw the car hit the grass after crossing behind us, become airborn and flip three times.
Our first thought was for traffic directly behind us. It was so fortunate no cars were close enough behind us to be involved. We slowed down enough to see a line of cars behind us stop and pull over to the side to give assistance so we continued on. Within minutes we saw an ambulance and a fire truck headed EB toward the accident.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the driver and possible passengers. I do hope they were wearing seatbelts.
So, now we have settled down. A little later we will take a walk around this park. It seems quite nice. More tomorrow. Need to de-stress tonight.
