    I was rearended on an on ramp waiting for a red light. The primary concern was not that I was hurt but that they needed my insurance card and license. The problem was that everything in my purse was scattered all over the car and since my seat was sheared off from the impact i was in too much pain to look. Of #1 importance was the insurance card- i could have died but the insurance was first concern.

Got something to say?
