I'm still recovering from the shock of my car crash. My mom was driving, and we were at an intersection waiting for a car infront of us to make a left turn. I was holding my new bag of prized fish when I heard a *scrreeee* and the next thing, the back end of our car lifted up and both my mom and I were thrown forward.
not sure if I was in heaven or hell, I looked around. No blood, no glass fragments, no brains. my fish were going ballistic, but that wasn't my number one worry at that time.
After my mom pulled over and the car that hit us did the same, I got out and checked out the damage, first on the other car, then ours.
well the other car got absolutely totalled. The left corner of the front was caved in and I could see bits and pieces of the car's innards. Preparing for the worst, I looked at the back of my car and really believed I was in heaven. Slight bumper fractures and cracks. the trunk didn't close all the way, but no other damage!!!
the driver of the other car was dieing from sorrow. I lost count of the number of times he said sorry. well we made sure that every one was alright, and called te police, insurance company etc.etc.
now I look back and see that had I not worn my seatbelts, I would have been thrown possibly through the front windshield and could be verywell dead or vegitating right now.
people. Take this as a living example of a good reason to wear seatbelts, and thanks for listening to my story. After the crash, I feel like I am living a new life. I see everything in a different perspective.
At least some good came from it :)
