Let me first say that David is fine. On Monday, I took a quick trip to New York and returned yesterday around 1:00. As always, I texted David when I landed, and headed toward the parking lot. About ten minutes later, I got a text that said he had been involved in a terrible accident and was headed to the Emergency Room via ambulance.
He was traveling through a busy intersection in Franklin, Tennessee when a teenager (probably texting) took a left turn and hit David’s car behind his seat. He spun around, went through the intersection, and was mercifully stopped by a telephone poll. We are very thankful that he didn’t have the kids with him — the car was hit right where Naomi’s car seat was. Also, we’re thankful that he didn’t hit another car or any pedestrians. Plus, the other driver was fine too!
As you might imagine, this was quite a shock. Instead of going home, we met him at the Emergency Room, where the doctor told us David had a concussion but was going to be fine.
His car? Well, it’s totaled, and he only bought it four weeks ago! I think David will be happy to start driving his big Titan truck after that incident.
Anyway, this whole thing reminded me of how much I love David French! You know him as a a pundit, but he’s also a great husband and a fantastic father — my biggest success is somehow getting him to marry me!
