Tuesday, Khalid’s mother shared some specifics of the collision with a local news station.

According to Mrs. Wolfe, Khalid’s car began overheating so Khalid pulled over to the side of the road.

As he was assessing his options and next course of action by the passenger side of his car, an approaching vehicle struck Khalid’s car on the driver’s side.

It’s not known if it was a sideswipe kind of thing or a T-bone but either way it sounds pretty scary.

Think about it, Khalid came thisclose to possibly being seriously injured. Had his next move been to sit back behind the wheel this story might have had a totally different ending.

Instead, according to his mom all Khalid suffered was a few “bruises and abrasions.” She added that “he was taken to the hospital to heal.”
