UPDATE: Friday -
Just talked with the driver of the other vehicle. Seems like a nice guy. He has two fractured vertebrae and will be in a neck brace for the next 8 weeks. His wife and child were at the school I passed on the way to the accident scene. She had heard the sirens and said a prayer for the people involved in the accident, not knowing one of the victims was her husband. The son found out about the accident from a schoolmate, who had recognized his father's truck at the accident scene.
I'm not ordinarily a fan of insurance companies, but it is a rare luxury to be able to worry about the people involved in an accident and let the insurance companies worry about the unimportant crap. Husbands, wives, sons and grandmothers are much more important than minivans and pickup trucks.
As expected, the wife is bruised, battered and stiff, but still all good. Amazing how many different colors a bruise can turn - none of them skin tone.
