A little after midnight I got a call from Alli - crying, telling me she was in an accident. On her way home from work, an animal ran in front of her and she swerved. She ran into a parked car. She was driving my car since I have been banned from driving for 2 weeks because of my surgery. Although I'm OK to drive, I haven't needed to.
Both air bags deployed, but she is OK. That is the most important thing, and I thank God for that. The car is replaceable, she is not. I also appreciate the two policemen who responded to the crash for their kindness and patience. They were very nice, explained everything, answered all of my questions and made sure Alli was OK and understood what to expect when she goes to court.
There were also two guys who stood outside their houses and as we left they called out, "Glad you're OK honey," to Alli. The car she hit was that of her friend's uncle - who is currently on vacation somewhere.
I haven't called my insurance company yet, I think I'll just wait until tomorrow to deal with that.
Update to add pictures:

The other car - the blue one in front of the Jeep:
I went to the tow yard to take the pictures of my car - one thing that bothers me is that the car is sitting there, unlocked, for anyone to take anything out of it. I took stuff from it and no one ever came out to see what I was doing. I realized that I need to go back because I forgot to empty the glove compartment and the console in the middle of the seats. I don't know what is in there, but I do know there is stuff in there. I won't get the word on whether it will be totaled until Monday or Tuesday.
