Code 3 for the traffic accident.
As we approach, two vehicles with flashers are still moving slowly in the left lane of the freeway. By the time we reach them, they are stopped. The driver of the trailing vehicle gets out and says he’s fine. He says he “tapped” the other vehicle in heavy traffic. There is no visible damage to his vehicle. The driver of the lead vehicle is sitting in the driver seat, complaining of neck pain. There is absolutely no visible damage to his vehicle either.
We put on the dog and pony show and immobilize him to the longboard. After I suppress the urge to yell at him for being a friggin’ pussy and scamming insurance, that is. But then, before we pull him out, without being asked, he removes the vehicle key from his key ring and leaves it in the ignition. And he does not ask what’s going to happen to his vehicle.
Isn’t that suspicious or am I just being too sensitive?*
