On Thursday while driving home with my kids in the car, i hit a dog. It ran straight in front of my car and i was unable to avoid it.
I was not speeding. The owners gates were open and it was going for another dog being walked on the opposite side of the road. I stopped and the owner was running down her driveway screaming. Her kids were in the front yard screaming as well. My kids were crying. I felt and still do feel terrible.
The dog died within a minute. I apologised over and over and told her the dog ran straight in front of me and i couldnt avoid it. She wouldnt speak to me or look at me. 2 witnesses there tried to comfort me, they told me it wasnt my fault and there was no way i could have stopped.
But i feel devastated about it. I have pets and i love them dearly, so i can only imagine how bad the owner must feel. Everytime i close my eyes or drive my car, all i see is the dog running at me, hearing the thud and feeling the bump of running over it. I have woken up after dreaming about it, crying my eyes out. How do i cope the the guilt and sadness.
