Accord Flips on Hood After Striking Parked Car

The driver was taken away on a stretcher but was conscious and talking with paramedics when she was taken away.

A Honda Accord was flipped on its roof in the middle of North 68th Street on Tuesday after striking a parked car.

The accident occurred about 1:45 p.m. at the intersection of 68th and Terrace Court.

According to a witness driving behind the Honda, the car was traveling north on 68th and had a left-turn signal on, but drifted right and struck a parked BMW Mini-Cooper on 68th.

A woman was taken from the Accord, put in a neck brace and strapped to a board before being lifted onto a stretcher and taken away by ambulance. She was conscious and talking with paramedics.

The Mini-Cooper suffered damage to the left rear quarter.

Its owner, Gina Schneider, was in her home in the 1000 block of 68th Street and heard, rather than saw, the accident. She expressed sympathy for the driver of the car that struck hers and was glad to see that her injuries did not appear to be serious.

But as to her own fortunes, Schneider said: "It sucks. I just got my car fixed 'cause somebody had hit it, and now – yeah, here we are. I'll get it fixed again."

she might not have been texting, but lets not rule out internet, email, photos, music, and all the other apps avail on a modern cell

The driver suffered from a severe seizure and lost control of the car. The world isn't full of people driving while texting so to immediately assume that it was because she's a woman is extremely narrow minded. Be part of the solution and not the problem. So take a second and delete your post then pray for the family.

oh Rob, did you read my comment, I did not assume she was texting or distracted by her phone, and I ABSOLUTELY did not make any sexists remarks - that is you interjecting your own preconceived thoughts into my written words. That is extremely narrow minded of you. Be part of the solution and not the problem, and stop praying. Do something active instead of passive. Prayer does not work.

I'm not here to argue with you over the Internet it's just you assumed something and then were corrected on your inssumption. There wasn't really a reason for your second posting and you could have kept your fingers from typing but it's you right to free speech. On a side note I am not religious at all I lost all religious ties while serving in the military but like with all near tragedies it's So with nothing further to add I will conclude this posting.
