Well, I did and continued proceeding through the intersection at the same time a West Valley City police officer was entering the intersection on his opposite green light. I mostly bumped his tire/hubcap but did leave a small dent in the lower passenger door frame and door. My front fender is a little scratched but no one was hurt, unless you count both of our egos.
Of course, not one additional office came to file the report...but 4 or 5 additional police cars quickly arrived at the scene. You would have thought the radio call-in was "OFFICER DOWN!" There I sat, in the middle of WVC (aka...the 'hood'), surrounded by police. Passers-by probably thought it was a meth bust going down. It was humiliating!
I'm sure his ego took some bruising too, as I heard the jeers coming from his fellow black-and-whites. "Hit in the line of duty, huh?" "Way to fall on that bullet, Dennis!" Poor guy.
So I called Joshua, and he laughed, sympathetically of course. My insurance agent laughed. The other police officers laughed. Since it was yesterday, I'm laughing a little bit more. Lesson learned, next time just stay home and paint the bathroom.
