This is gonna be a long one?

Hubby got really really lucky on thursday







he was driving or rather sitting at 31 and 56 at the stop light

waiting for the light to turn green.. just as he was turning left onto 56

he smelled something  but right there is a BBQ place and right after

that Burgerking.. he didn’t think anything of it.. right after he passed Burgerking

he seen the first smoke  come up from the steering column,..,

He drove about 50 feet more to an old empty Taco Bell parking lot  pulled in

grabbed his cell and jumped out as flames where starting to shoot up from underneath

the dash… Woman pulled in behind him  and told him  truck had been on fire  since stoplight

flames where underneath  it since then and that’s why she was Honking at him…

Well he heard the honking but paid no attention since we or rather he knows only a handfull of peeps here…..But she had called fire dept already .someone else pulled in and used their fire extinguisher  to try and keep the flames at bay,, a small business right next to the lot someone came running from there with the extinguisher and a nurse on her way home or to work

stopped and checked if he was ok.. He was amazed at people  helping  and not just  watching

if this had happened in Houston  most peeps would have just  kept on going..

He is truly ok  though and now just waiting to hear on insurance.. He told insurance he would be interested to know what happened since  truck was fine and all gauges showed normal..

We have had no issues with it,.,.,,

anyhow a guardian angel  he had that day……
