Carson Update

Various news reports this evening said that Carson was "uninjured" and released after two days of observation at Methodist hospital. (That US Congressional health plan must not be so bad after all.) Her office told reporters she was "pretty banged up". Either way, pictures of the car show quite a bit of front end damage directly across the entire front of the car with slightly more on the front left side. I'm going to be curious to see how this was soley the result of the other car running a red light (or stop sign). Police say the report is "still being prepared." Carson's office says she is going to try to be back in DC Wednesday.

Any idea where Carson's car struck the other person's? Anyway, without knowing a lot of the variables, my guess would be that Carson swerved to the left to avoid the accident, causing the impact to take place at the front/front right of her vehicle.

In Indiana, at least, you have no duty to anticipate that another vehicle will break the law by running a light or stop sign (if that's what actually happened). If you're just cruising through an intersection and someone blows through illegally, you have precious little time to react.

I looked for the photo of the car again to post today but couldn't find it. Have not heard of the damage to the other person's car but I'll be it's very heavy on the back side panel and back corner (of the side she struck). The driver may have run a stop sign (or light or whatever) but I think Carson hit them side hard on anyway. There was just too much damage otherwise. (So much for defensive driving.) I'll keep an eye our for the police report.
