Oh man.

I just saw some poor cyclist get the door prize. And in the aftermath, as witnesses (including me) rushed over to check on him, and make sure he was walking & talking & not bleeding internally and that he got the driver's details & insurance info, the driver made repeated complaints that she didn't mean to do it and everyone was being rude to her.

Like, holy fuck, lady. No one needs to soothe your feelings. You didn't just get hit by a car.

I finally ended up calling the police & giving them her license plate # because she kept making noises about not having time for this and how she needed to leave now.

The phrase "impact matters, not intention" is not about car accidents, but jeez, in this situation it really truly applied.
