8/6/2008:

How does this happen?

Still half asleep?

“Like I just drove out. Oh My Gawd. Like this hole came out of nowhere like you know. My car was like whatever it can make it. Then my sandals like so slippery and I just kinda hit the wrong thing. Not that brake thing but what’s the other thing? Then we were like oh my gawd we are like so going to die” – should this be in Overheard in Hoboken section? :lol:[/quote]

Someone behind the wheel in Hoboken not paying attention? I’m shocked. Shocked and appalled.[/quote]
By chance, was a cell phone involved??

add this to the female SUV driver stereotype justification.
