Just curious, if anyone wants to share (if you don't than that's fine) a story about the worst car accident you survived. I've personally been in more car accidents than personally i'd like, from minor to major ones.
I'd guess the worst one i was ever in was when i was about 7 years old, i was riding in the backseat of a Camry with my two best friends, and the three older sisters of one of my best friends. Going up a two way street with business on each side, we were blindsided on the passenger side by a Ford Explorer pulling out of a parking lot that wasn't paying attention, the impact pushed us right into the oncoming lane where we were crushed by a speeding Ford F350 diesel dully truck, that never stopped after the crash. The car crushed like an accordion, but other than the girl sitting on my right who was bleeding in her head by all the shattered glass, nobody was seriously hurt. Strange, because the car was unidentifiable after the second impact. Not sure why the dually truck never stopped. By way of fault, the driver of the Explorer was at fault for the whole thing. Despite a high number of witnesses, they never caught the guy in the truck. (surprise there)
Of course we all went to the hospital to be checked out. I'm not sure if the doctor was trying to make everyone feel better or what but he noted that the mildness of the injuries was due to all of us being of young age. (at the time i think the oldest person was the girl driving @18 years). It was surreal, almost like a miracle. Logically speaking, he said older people with older bones could have easily of been fatalities in this particular incident. I'd think it was both.
If anyone would care to share, please do. Don't be bothered to share if you can't do so without becoming overly emotional or personal. You don't necessarily have to be specific if it makes you uncomfortable, a general story and pictures speak a million words.
Only reason i bring this up is because I've noticed over the years that people are just starting to drive worse and worse. I don't know if driving school is becoming more lenient or if people just give no fuxks any more.. Remember that you're more likely to be killed in a car crash than virtually anything else that's not a disease or cancer! Drive Safe!! (and if you're going to drive like a dick, at least know what you're doing, how to actually handle your car and learn some defensive driving.. otherwise, you're just a tool.)
