At approximately 7 a.m I was praying my rosary and walking southwards on Merrivale Road, Ottawa, Ontario. You can hear my story here on video.
As I was crossing Rosenthal Dr., a grey vehicle heading south on Merrivale Road turned suddenly at a very high speed ( approx 30-40 m.p.h) and hit the stop sign.
I was 1/2 to 3/4 of the way across Rosenthal Dr., when the vehicle suddenly passed by me, narrowly missing me by 12 to 24 inches before it crashed into the stop sign.
I saw a black lady of approx 25 years of age, black hair in the driver’s seat with a passenger next to her which seemed to be a woman.
Her shaky body movement and the accident gave me the thought that she was drunk.
Within less than a minute she backed up the vehicle and drove away on Rosenthal Dr., heading West.
I was able to snap two photos of her vehicle as she sped away.
The front bumper and license plate was on the ground next to the stop sign after she left.
Within a few minutes I called 911 and reported this to the Police. A half hour later the officer arrived and took my report and asked me to email her my report of the accident.
I took photos of the scene of the accident, bumper, license plate. I informed her that if she required them to let me know.
P.S: as I finish this report my mother’s precious words come to mind:
“TIME is precious,
It gives us time to LOVE,
TIME to have GOD’S PRECIOUSNESS.”
