I would have never thought that Nolan would have wrecked one of the vehicles so soon after getting his license. Yet, that is exactly what happened. Thank God he and Amory weren't hurt at all, and it could have been much worse than what it was.
He was traveling down a country road on his way to the barn where he and Amory train horses. After coming out of the woods section he ran into some REALLY slippery ice and lost control of the van. A few seconds later, they were in a field, after having hit a ditch, and the van was on it's SIDE! They probably slid ten to fifteen feet before they came to a stop.
We got a call from him saying he wrecked the van, and they were on their way home. Since both if them were not hurt at all, and not even really shaken up, I told them to have the lady they work with to just take them to the barn to do their work and I would come to pick them up. On my way there, I was greeted by the sheriff and was instructed to bring them back to the site of the accident. A couple of hours later we left, cold, and a little bewildered what we were going to do with our inoperable vehicle.
The tow company took the van, reset the wheels that were popped, and checked all the fluids. We got away with some minor cosmetic damages, missing a mirror, and the door and window will need a little work. Thank God again for His grace for our lives!
