Valley resident George Lindell was driving to a Boston Market in north Phoenix to grab some grub last week, when he was rear-ended by an SUV. The SUV then swerved to avoid hitting another vehicle, causing the driver to lose control and crash into a utility poll, bringing down power lines.
"It was like 'Bam!' I got hit hard, and it was like getting hit by a...train," Lindell, in the most animated recreation of a car wreck we've ever heard, told reporters.
Lindell escaped the wreck unscathed, but, as he also points out during his account of the wreck, "reality hits you hard, bro!"
