Christ Hit by Vehicle(?!)

Ready for this bit of news? Lord Jesus Christ was injured by a driver. OK, it’s not our Lord I’m speaking of. Rather, a 50-year-old man whose legal name is “Lord Jesus Christ” was hit by a 20-year-old woman (yep, you know how women drivers are) on Thursday, May 6.  Here’s the actual news story (or see it here):

Brittany E. Cantarella was cited for a crosswalk violation, said Northampton police Capt. Scott Savino.

Christ, 50, of Belchertown, was taken to Cooley Dickinson Hospital for treatment of minor injuries following the 3:30 p.m. accident. He was treated at the hospital and then released.

Cantarella was making a left turn from Strong Avenue onto Main Street when her car, a 2005 Chevrolet Monte Carlo, struck Christ.

Christ was in a marked crosswalk at the time of the accident, Savino said.

Savino said officers checked Christ’s identification at the scene and confirmed it was his legal name.

Any lesson to be learned from this? Maybe it’s just that bearing the name of the Savior doesn’t make you any less human, and if you’re driving, watch out for pedestrians, because you never know who you might hit.
