Costly Accident: Dealing With That Kind Of Loss
I'd like to share a story with you all. It started today when I woke up. I had actually managed to wake up on time this morning. I was in pretty good mood considering that I wasn't running to the bus stop with a half eaten beagle or something. But that all changed when I got this news. Sometime yesterday, a friend of mine was playing around with her horses. This is where it gets a little sketchy, please don't ask me about what I am about to say next, because I am in the dark as well. She opened the gate and let the two horses out into the yard to eat hay, she thought they'd be fine. That was until one of the horses ran from the yard and onto the road. The oncoming driver never even saw him, and the horse was hit, smashing the drivers windshield. The horse survived the hit, and got back up, walking back on the road to an oncoming truck. The truck ended upside down in a ditch. I do not know if the horse survived being hit by the truck, or was immediately put to death due to the severe amount of injuries. My friend is in obvious denial, blaming the drivers for the accident, and is very angry. I know she isn't covered for the damage, and injuries, will she be taken to court and fined? I've never dealt with this kind of thing before, what should I say to comfort her?
Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.
