A Moment

A Moment
A friend, his wife, their daughter, on a Spring Break trip
Nearly home, my buddy driving, everyone else asleep—
Suddenly, crazy speeder behind them, not slowing,
Hits them, and pushes the three into the
Oncoming lane
To meet
Head on
Another car.

More innocents
Horrific crash
A split second in time
Lives changed

Idiot speeder
Races off
Back down the road
Soon to abandon the van
And run away.

Cowards in the night
Fleeing from the carnage they caused
To wait for the ambulances.
