"my life is over, i'll hang myself!"

Yesterday my dog and I was on a badly light path when a car came through a crossroad. The driver actually slowed down when he was nearing the x but a runner managed to go and run under him without a reflector and while wearing black clothes that can't be actually seen through a windshield in the rain.

My idiot dog and I ran to them, I checked up on the victim first, he had a sprained ankle and he kept on going about him being an idiot for assuming that when he sees someone, he also could be seen.

The driver was an other story. He was absolutely in pieces for hurting an other human. He kept on crying. He kept on shouting he was so, so sorry. He even told me he had a beer 4 hours prior with his lunch so as a witness I'd know alcohol was involved.

Again, the runner had a rolled ankle. The driver was in tears and in a state of shock. I actually called our emergency service and told them I witnessed an accident but right now, the person who was hit is okay, but the driver needs medical attention for shock.

When the cops and the ambulance showed up, he said to me "my life is over. I'll hang myself."

The cops took the runner to the er. The driver and the ambulance crew stayed there with me, until the medical professionals understood how shook up he was. Then I walked home.

The guy did nothing wrong, the cops, the paramedics, me and the runner he hit thought so. Hurting a person was still so horrible to him that hanging himself seemed like a sane option.

I told you all this just to make sure you all know that people who experience something traumatic doing a daily thing like driving, act and talk insane. Please don't let them be without help.

I have no idea how the guy feels about the accident today. I do know that the iced up ankle, the stupid runner is okay. Just remember that people who are panicking are idiots.

Did you take him to get a beer? It HAD been more than 4 hours, which may explain the hysteria.

He wasn't. He was a normal human being under pressure.

Not funny. The driver was absolutely sober, he just realized for the first time in his life that it was not in his hand at all times. He was scared. He reverted to the problem solution abilities of a teenager.

Just all of you out here, know that when accidents happen, sometimes the one driving needs more help than the victim.

Well, I don't know if I would go that far. Everyone handles pressure in different ways - but that seems rather extreme.

I don't think a reaction like that would be considered 'normal' by most folks.

Just my 2 cents.


BTW - how are you, Lups?

I'm good, shit going down with my eldest son and his ear and hearing and jaw and my sauna keeps on getting the hits for it . Just fucking tired, and thanks to an abnormally dry autumn, my dog and I walk in the woods a lot with no mushrooms to report of. You?

Doing well - built a home at the top of a mountain - much more solitude and lots of land to call my own. Also got a promotion at a new job, starting in a couple of weeks. No more coal business for me. Autumn just started here this week. Was 2*c this morning when I woke up.

I certainly agree.

Sounds like he has "some" depression..or a lot.
Depression is a terrible thing...I have been there and done that. In my case and in many cases medicine can be a life saver. The later generation ones are not habit forming and really just supplement the chemicals that the body is not producing enough of.

I have been depression free for at least 10 years. Not ashamed of it.

I hope he gets help...or he may indeed hang himself. I have been where he may be.

Did he even care about the person he hit, or was he only concerned with himself and the possible legal ramifications he'd face? Sounds like it was all me me me but that could just have been how the story was told here.

I certainly will have a beer after reading this. Glad the runner will be fine but the guy will probably get some flashbacks.

Sounds like the driver was having a panic attack and a nervous breakdown. Glad you kept your composure Anna

Would be funny if the guy got hit still alive, but the driver killed himself and got dead.

Hard to say what I had done after hitting a pedestrian under such circumstances...maybe I had kicked him the other ankle out, that his dumbness hurts double?

In such cases, it helps to slap the driver's cheeks. And you there are tests by a psychiatrist before receiving a driver's license?

This actually could've helped.
I've never seen a person panicking in such manner.

The funniest thing about it all is that I had no leash for my stupid dog who kept climbing in the police vehicle to get out of the rain. The cops were not amused.

Anna, glad you were there to help and assist both individuals. Terrible thing to witness in itself. Hope you are well.

This comment completely solidifies my original notions of you as a person. I'm not even going to elaborate as I feel it isn't needed. Your comment speaks for itself.

Many many moons ago I was driving through a small borough on my way somewhere. Early evening, just after sunset. Traffic moves at about 35MPH in the area. There was a guy on the sidewalk, walking oddly, waving his arms, talking, yelling. Pretty obviously he had some screws loose.

On my way back from somewhere, maybe 20 minutes later, I went back through the same area. The loony guy stepped off the curb directly into the path of the car in front of me; the driver had literally zero chance to slow down. Loony man bounced up onto the hood and his head struck the windshield on the driver's side. The car stopped and loony guy fell onto the street.

I hung around to report what I saw.

The driver of that car was a youngish father with two boys in the back seat of the car. He was apoplectic, unconsolable. Crying, heaving, curled up on the curb, the entire time I was there. Traumatized.
