Alright, so I was in probably one of the stupidest car wrecks on sunday EVER! But I'm pretty much the only person to blame for that but here is the story anyway. I live on the top of a VERY steep hill and there was an old car in the leftside of our driveway in pretty bad shape that hadn't been driven in six months. I was just going to back it in reverse then move it into the rightside of the driveway, move it out of the way. The engine starts and I put it in reverse, but then when I shifted into drive the engine dies and doesn't start up again. I think the battery died. Then that's when the **** hit the fan and the car started moving down the hill backwards, gaining momento. Not being in this kind of situation before, one of the first things I do is grab the emergency break and while that happened the car shifted right and crashes into a stone wall in someone's yard. It could've been worse though because if the car kept going staight it would've gone into mass avenue, head on into ongoing traffic going and coming the other way. The owner of the house wasn't a ***** or anything, she was more concerned for my safety than anything else but she suggest that we called 911 because she thought the car could catch fire on her lawn or something. So anyway, here is the ****ed up thing. The cop who came onto the scene wrote me up on some **** and today I get the citation in the mail. I understand why he would write me up for operating an unauthorised and unregistered vehicle, despite the fact that it was a freak accident, but the thing I did get pissed off over was that he also wrote me up on failure to use care in backing and failure to stay in the marked lane. What did he want me to do? I know I made a mistake in underestimating how bad the car was, its not like I had intentions on taking the car out, but still I never anticapted the car to die on me and back down the street. What did he want me to do, miracuously turn the car around while it sped out of control and let it move straight into mass avenue where it could cause a real serious accident? With a story like mine, is it possible I could get those last two charges dropped or does he still have the right to write me up on that?
