Just as we exited the store, there was this huge "BANG", and at first we wondered if somebody was shooting at us. Then we saw the pickup. The man driving (notice it was a MAN, people!) had slammed into a concrete-encased pole not far from the entrance. He hit it so hard it not only dented the left front of his truck, it also blew out the tire.
I had my camera with me, and I wanted so badly to take a picture. Unfortunately, there was no discreet way of doing that, and I figured the guy, probably in his thirties, already felt bad enough, without watching some old woman take his picture.
We can't figure out any reason for the mishap. Was he on the cell phone? On drugs? There's no way to know, but he sure messed up a beautiful white pickup, and what looked to be a brand-new tire.
