We'll need a new Van

Mollie wanted to stay at her friend's house in Churubusco, so Tom took Armani and the van and drove her there. I stayed home, reading my emails, just waiting for him to come home.

About half an hour after they had left Tom called me and said they had gotten into a bad wreck. Everybody was OK, just our van was totaled. Some older guy with a pick-up truck ran a STOP sign and hit our car at 45 mph.

I drove the Tracker out  to where they were, on Carroll Road, right on the boarder of Huntertown. There was Armani, with a man who lives on that intersection, Mollie sitting on the gras, Tom talking to the Sheriff, a few neighbours' kids checking out the scene.

Doesn't look like the van can be fixed - the frame was probably bent. Tom and Mollie and Armani were extremely lucky, they could have been killed. How can somebody not see a STOP sign, plus not even slow down, plus run into a pretty big van without even touching his brakes? I think the guy was either asleep or drunk.
