Hey y'all. I want to start this post off by saying I am incredibly blessed in many ways in this situation and all is good.
TLDR; As a recommendation from a fellow redditor!
Please be on the lookout. License plate (FKF- then at least 2 3s in the number space. I believe it was 3 3s though.) It was a purple or dark blue mini suv/hatchback. Witness said it was a KIA as well as young asian female driver. If anyone has any information please contact me or the Police.
Earlier today I was headed to a meeting at Sir Walter Coffee around 3:15pm. I parked on Blount street between Davie and Cabbarus. I parked, shut the car off, checked before I exited my car, got out, opened the door behind the driver seat, put a few things in my backpack (maybe 20-30 seconds), then someone just about hit me and slammed into my car door. No other cars were on the road, 3 lanes, I was parked against the sidewalk, etc. She had to go out of her way to hit me, and I wasn't even in the lane. I am incredibly, incredibly fortunate to have her car only scrape my arm and cause a little bit of soreness, but even a half an inch in the wrong direction and my elbow would have been shattered or worse. So, all is good and wow, I am incredibly lucky (look at how small the mark on me is in the photo!), but it is important that this person gets found. They didn't slow down at all to see if I was okay, had no clue if I was, immediately went into run(drive) away mode, and I only got part of her license plate (FKF- then at least 2 3s in the number space. I believe it was 3 3s though.) It was a purple or dark blue mini suv/hatchback. The only witness said it was a KIA and that she was a younger Asian girl (maybe earlier 20s?). I chased her car around a few blocks until she got too far away to get the exact number unfortunately. It all happened incredibly fast. I have gone through the processes with the police, had the witness testimony written with a way to contact him, etc.
Imagine if I had taken a step back, nuts! If anyone has any information, sees this car, etc. Please reach out to me, call the cops, take photos, write down info, etc. If they aren't found, my insurance is going to cost me at least 500$ regardless of the fact that it was a criminal situation. I think it might be even more due to changes in my insurance and could have a major impact on me. Also, this person does not need to be on the road and is an obvious safety hazard.
Is there anywhere in the area where one can buy huckleberries? I am originally from the Pacific Northwest, and we have reached the point in the summer where my social media feeds are filled with everyone back home posting pictures of huckleberries they have foraged. And now I am craving them and really want to make a huckleberry cheesecake.
I know there are several companies online that sell and ship them frozen, and I might give in and do that. But I am always nervous about have such delicate (and expensive) perishable items shipped across the country, especially during the heat of summer. I know it is a longshot, but I thought I’d ask ask the sub.
Bought two tickets months ago to SOJA and Sublime with Rome for tonight, July 21st but now I'm headed out of town for the week. Giving them away to anyone interested. Show is at the Cary Koka Booth Amphitheatre, reserved table at the front. Starts at 6:30 but headliners won't start until later. Openers are Common Kings and Michael Franti & Spearhead.
First to respond gets em. Would love if whoever gets em to grab me a large shirt at the mercy Booth, but it's not necessary. Just don't want them to go to waste.
