Interesting things happened yesterday but not to me

Thank [$DEITY] I was not the interesting person this time, only interesting adjacent. There was a three car pileup in front of me while I was waiting for the bus. I feel really bad for the guy at the head of the line, because he obviously lunched his transmission before the wreck, or maybe something in the clutch. Anyway when he stopped at the red light next to the bus stop something broke and he couldn’t get the engine to connect to the wheels correctly which caused him to turn on the emergency flashers and wait for help. Eventually someone pulled behind him not paying attention to the situation, and another numb-nuts behind him. When the light changed you can probably imagine the results, but I’m going to tell you anyway. The first guy’s vehicle was still disabled, the second guy started moving but almost stopped in time, and the third person didn’t look up from their phone until they hit the second vehicle and banged it into the first vehicle again hard enough to move it forward a few feet. The guy driving the second vehicle came out the worst of the three with front-end damage I couldn’t see aside from the debris on the road, so at least a headlight taken out, and chunks and parts knocked off the rear bumper. The third vehicle had some headlight damage but by then the bus got there so I don’t know what else happened to it.

Almost forgot to wish everyone a Happy Imbolc, or Groundhog Day if you don’t see this as a religious holiday. May your Happy Plans come to fruition.
