So today after work DH and the kids came to pick me up. We're driving along and suddenly see this car cut completely across the highway, then see a large tire from a flatbed trailer come flying towards our car. It hit the driver's side, hit the median, bounced and then hit the side of the car.
Luckily no one was hurt and the damage to the car doesn't appear to be too bad, it's mainly on the driver's side bumper and fender. We called the police to file a report, and exchanged info with the driver.
Then when the cop showed up he ran DH's license, and it is showing up as being suspended.
Back in August DH was pulled over and told he had a warrant out for 2 unpaid traffic tickets, so he just reissued the tickets and said DH would have a mandatory court appearance.
So DH went to court, apologized to the judge for forgetting about the tickets, then he explained that we had just moved and that in all that chaos we must have just forgotten about them. The judge was sympathetic, and waived one of the tickets, and after court DH went to pay the ticket.
The clerk at the register still tried to charge him for both tickets. DH explained what the judge said, and the clerk only charged him for one ticket, which he paid and we thought was the end of it, but I guess not because DH hasn't been pulled over since that incident. So our best guess is that their system didn't get updated to reflect that one of the tickets was waived, so it's now showing up as unpaid, and that's why his license is suspended. So we have to call the city up on Monday to find out what's going on, and how to get this mess straightened out, then we have to call the truck driver's insurance company and deal with that mess too. Ugh!
