In the April 4 issue of The Lancaster News, the story about an 18-wheeler hit a car at the intersection of S.C. Bypass and Meeting Street/Camp Creek Road brought back scary, scary moments for me.
Two weeks ago my 5-year-old granddaughter and I were only seconds from being hit by a loaded pulpwood truck.
I was stopped at the stoplight coming from Camp Creek. While I was waiting for the light to turn green for my way, two loaded pulpwood trucks went by really fast.
When the light turned green I looked to the left to see if the traffic was going to stop. If I had moved up a little more, there's no doubt in my mind that my granddaughter and I would have been crushed to death that day.
Our guardian angel was with us that day. The third green cab loaded pulpwood truck went through the red light wide open like it wasn't even there. I guess he was trying to keep up with the other two trucks.
I am glad that the person in the 18-wheeler wreck survived because one day people disregarding traffic lights are going to have to live with terribly hurting or killing someone. The lights are there for a reason.
