Miranda Lambert says they were hit by a car 'driving erratically'
Miranda Lambert took to Instagram to share the news of her and her husband Brendan McLoughlin’s scary hit-and-run accident. In the post, she shared a series of photos from their last leg of their road trip and then a video of their airstream smashed and damaged. She wrote in the caption, “Unfortunately on the way home going through Atlanta, an a** h*le in a small car with temp plates was driving erratically and tried to squeeze between us and an semi truck going 70 on I-20 W.” She continues, “It hit the airstream on the passenger side and sent us into the left lane. We fishtailed pretty good but got on the shoulder as quickly as possible to assess the damage.”
Lambert said that thankfully, no one got hurt, but the car did not stop. Instead, the car sped away, to which Lambert responded with a sarcastic “Cool Bro.” She adds, “We are so thankful that nothing worse happened. Our vehicle and trailer were driveable so we made a report and hauled home.” While the situation is definitely unfortunate, at least no one was hurt.
