Ouch! Side of truck scraped after wife swerved to avoid a child.
A few pics of the side of my truck after my wife swerved to avoid a child running around alone in the parking lot at a Wendys.
Rather have the truck messed up then have her run someone over, but it would be nice if parents would corral their kids.
moral of the story, watch out for kids, and watch out for buildings!

Wow! It could have been a whole lot worse. I know exactly what you mean about corralling the kids. I often see kids running around parking lots unattended. I have 2 young children, our "parking lot rules" are that they are holding my hand or my wife's at all times. If for some reason their hand comes out of one of our hands They freeze and do not move.

That is pretty crazy, but there is no price for a child's well being. However it is costly.AC - Nevada
