The Highwayman's Rig: Totaled

- Christmas eve - Message : I saw the recent story in regards to Thomas Weller " The Highwayman" and trying to get his car fixed. I was involved in that accident and what he claiming that happened that day is not true and I have the police reports to back it up. I'm frustrated that a man who is out there to help others only had the minimum insurance coverage of $5,000 and caused $30,511.41 in damages to 4 cars. He was in the wrong that day and caused a major accident that sent me to the hospital and for him to continue with the story that someone cut him off to get money out of San Diegan's is wrong. At the time of the accident he claimed there was oil on the road, which also the police showed was not true in the report. He was at total fault. I would like to see a story done to show the viewers the other side of the story. :confused: [​IMG] This woman WAS involved in the accident -- she was NOT the one that *caused* it, but, she mistakenly believed *I* did, apparently, :( I had waited --[ note the dates of the postings ] -- for nearly three years -- to add my *actual* "witness statement" to this -- anticipating that my testimony would exonarate me in court -- never got the chance -- insurance co didn't CARE who caused it - they just wanted to "settle" :mad: I was surprized, dismayed, hurt that this was aired Christmas eve -- unTILL -- I realized WHY channel 10 did it ;) FOR me :cool: I am SO honored to hear from SO MANY folks I've met beside the road in their times of trouble and SO many of my neighbors and passersby that I've had to "go wash my face" a number of times on readin these -- It remains to be seen if Beulah will ever be fit for service agin, But, while I am -- STILL HERE - -I will continue, to the best of my ability, with what I HAVE -- to assist those I encounter in trouble along the highways and byways of my travels -- AND -- if I may -- I ENCOURAGE others to DO so as well -- to the best of *their* abilities -- "On the Road" stories *here*

To "MommasGirl" I am sorry that *you* felt it necessary to DO this -- on Christmas Eve, no less! But, being a "Devil's Advocate" I can see why you might believe *me* to be at fault -- when you looked in your rearview mirror, after hearing the crash behind you, you would have likely only seen *me* coming towards you from the rear -- as the driver, Debra, who *CAUSED* the crash veered back TO THE RIGHT and PASSED you on the right to stop a considerable distance further down the road ON the RIGHT side! -- You likely never even SAW her car -- My brakes were disabled by *that* crash - [ I didn't know that at the time ] and *THAT'S WHY I was inspecting the road surface after -- to see if there was something slick on it [ like spilled antifreeze from a possible eariler crash -- or some such ] I was puzzelled by my inability to avoid hitting *your* car, as I was NOT "speeding" at all but traveling "with the flow of traffic -- as I told you on the phone after, when I called to see if you were all right, i'm sorry you were involved - damaged because of the first drivers "SID" Selfish Ignorant Driving behaviour :( but *I* was NOT the *cause* of this crash -- SHE was! IF Beulah's dashcam had been ON, I would have had NO problem proving that -- BeCAUSE of that -- my Mercury's dash cam is ALWAYS ON when it's running and was able to catch *this* "SID"s simaler Selfish Ignorant behavior, that, luckily, did NOT result in a crash as I WAS able to avoid her by braking and going WITH her to the left to avoid being HIT from my rear by a vehicle that was following *me* TOO CLOSE! :p AGIN - I'm sorry you felt it necessary to DO what you DID on the EVE of my birthday no less!! I didn't get much sleep that night -- wonderin?? and THEN, I woke up Christmas mornin and saw *why* channel 10 ran the story -- THANK YOU Channel 10! I think you, Vicky, have held your mistaken angst for too long -- I forgive you.

Union-Tribune circulation takes a hit lookin for adventure -- NOT plastic wrapped advertizin circulars thrown in yards, driveways, on sidewalks, in the street -- EVERY Friday -- *THAT'S* called LITTERING! WHY is it ALLOWED?! It's pollution of the enviroment as hardly anyone reads it, much less picks it up, so it ends up in the gutters, washed into the storm drains, spreadin out over the wetlands where it harms the wildlife -- eventually reachin the OCEAN! *i* have a FULL trash can of these advertizin circulars from the UT -- collected from a ONE BLOCK SQUARE area over five weeks time! IMAGINE the impact of this "LITTER" over the WHOLE of San Diego County in just that time! WHY is this ALLOWED?!
