I can’t imagine suffering the loss of a child due to a car crash, but to face what this family endured would feel like a devastating blow on top of an already heartbreaking loss.
I have to say I have never really thought about what happens after a car accident and who takes care of the wreck that ensues. I was in a car accident this past winter, unfortunately, when someone ran a red light and hit my car, and the road was left a mess when my car essentially shattered. For weeks, we would drive by the scene of the accident and my kids would point out pieces of our old car. “Look, there’s your car, Mom!” they would shout.
It didn’t even occur to me that I could be responsible for cleaning up the debris or paying someone to clean the debris, but for one family, that’s exactly what happened.
