What apparently happened was this -- she pulled out of a driveway less than a block away. She drove down our street and hit the corner of Rachel's car parked at the curb in front of our house. Rachel's car was shoved backwards about 12 feet and this woman's car flipped over! How does that happen??
Rachel's car has very little visual damage. The body of her car seems to have been saved, although there is obviously some misalignment to the tires/axle/frame something. The front tires point in different directions now.
The street was blocked off, there were 2 fire trucks, 2 police vehicles, and a tow truck. The event pulled neighbors out of their houses all up and down the street. It was all very fascinating. Rachel commented that she had never met so many neighbors. (We should have had a block watch meeting while we were all together!)
