What should have been a three and a half hour drive home turned into a night in the hospital, a petrifying drive home, and absent mindedness for weeks. We were stopped. A police car was on the right lane due to a another vehicle’s flat tire. I was asleep. Suddenly, there was a bang. My mother's instinct was to turn the wheel to prevent…
