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.)

 

peace

We were driving down the highway in our Yugo and my dad lost control of it and smashed the right side into that fence next to the road.

Nothing too serious. Wrote off this Holden last November, the thing had bald tires and as I was going around a corner I spun out and wrecked into this big ass metal barrier.

My worst accidents were two car crashes and one nasty fall from bicycle.

In one crash a van ran red light and crashed into the left side of the car I was in (I was a passenger,on the right side).That was my first traffic accident ever,but I wasn´t injured,just a little shocked.

In the second crash a car also ran red light and crashed into the right side of the car I was in (I was passenger again).I also wasn´t injured in that crash either.

I fell from a bike because I was going down hill and the brakes were weak,so I tried putting my feet down and stopping that way,but I fell instead.I injured my ankle (almost broke it) and also got some scratches and bruises.

Been involved in two bad accidents and been somewhat fortunate with both, first I don't remember because I was just a small child, that happened in a taxi on a motorway, basically some dude hit the taxi from behind around 70mph, the taxi spun and smashed into a barrier, everybody in taxi had whiplash injuries so fairly minor considering the speed and nature of crash. The second accident was rather surreal, a few months after passing my test I took a corner too quickly in bad conditions in a car not made for going quick! About half way through the bend I knew I'd gone in too fast, next thing I know i'm travelling sideways, mid air, speed was 55mph before I left the road into a field, where the car fell back on it's wheels, my cousin played football the day after, I escaped with brusing to the right side of my body as the car landed sideways and I must've fell onto the door but otherewise I was okay.

Well it didn't feel like something that would've killed us but it left my mom a slipped disc and if I were one of those stupid kids who didn't wear their seat belt then I probably wouldn't be here right now. It was April last year and we were heading to the commissary (on base) and it was rush hour. We were about to head down a slight hill and a lot of traffic was backed up at the light. A Directv van was riding our ass by the way.So after about a minute it turned green and eventually we started moving. Well, this Tahoe in front of us slammed on his brakes, so my mom did the same thing to avoid hitting him. Well we come to a stop and about a second later, as if the Directv van behind us hadn't noticed that we stopped moving, we were rear ended hard and pushed into the Tahoe in front of us. Well about a week later we found out the car was totaled and it was pretty clear that the driver in the van wasn't paying attention. He kept acting funny and accusing us of already running into the guy in front of us. But currently we're still in a pending lawsuit. This accident kind of f*cked my parents up money-wise a few months afterwards but things are definitely a lot better now.

Had two biggish accidents within a year. Young, inexperienced and thought I was better than I was.

At 17 riding a motorcycle too quickly in bad conditions. Ran wide on a corner into wet leaves, bike spun from under me and threw me off. Slide 50 metres down the road and into the back of a Chrysler Neon parked at a junction.

Very lucky really, came away with just cuts and bruises. Still have two scars on back of my hand though were scrapped along road after glove got torn off.

Second at 18 in a Peugeot 106 XSi.

Again, going too fast. Rover 400 pulled out of a side road in front of me (misjudged my speed) I swerved to avoid but clipped rear corner of Rover with my front corner. Rolled my car into a 3 foot high stone wall which then launched me back into the air and somehow managed to land other side of the wall in a front garden on my wheels.

Got a concussion, damaged my left knee and broke my right hand. I count myself lucky again. Had 4 Police cars, 2 Fire Engines and 2 Ambulances along with a road closure.

Learnt my lesson after that and realised I was a cocky and awful driver (Like most 18 year olds are).

Took advanced driving lessons (passed my advanced test), got my race license then took an instructors course to teach advanced driving which I do to this day. All young drivers should take advanced lessons.

Which advanced driving qualification did you do? I had RoSPA for a few years via pool but it lapsed when I left my old job. ARDS as well? I had National B sa few years back though I never actually used it for anything.

Currently have RoSPA Gold and IAM + IAM observers. Not actually taught anyone for IAM for about 5 years though so that's probably lapsed by now, really need to do the refresher.

I generally train fleet drivers for companies as brings insurance costs for organisation down and improve eco driving.

That was how I got RoSPA. Nice to see another member with an interest in advanced driving here.

Ever done any competitive racing?

Not yet, I started doing track days in a Rover 220 Turbo I bought for the fun of it and considered doing competitive in Auto Cross so got the license then took a new job, moved house so had to sell the toy and never got chance.

Still love to do it but its just finding the time (and money now!)

How about yourself? Any track time?

Plenty of track time but aside from a bit of amateur rallying when I was much younger, nothing competitive. When I was younger and had more time and less commitments I ran a Lysholm 'charged Corrado, did quite a lot of track time in that, plus owned an M20 swapped E21 for a ring trip. Also did the 'ring in my old B5 S4 and twice on bikes, but not been on a track in a couple of years now.

Wanted to get involved in hillclimbing for a while now given it's basically the local Motorsport of choice but only ever spectated so far.

Ooo Nurburg! Would love to go over, made plans when I had the 220 to head over with a mate with his Elise but dreaded the drive in a stiff, low, stupidly uncomfortable and very noisy 220. Is it as good as I Imagine it to be?

That's quite a line up of cars! Love the old Corrado but rare as hens teeth now. If went to get another track toy now I wouldn't know what to get, prefer older stuff, easier to work on.

When it's dry and quiet it's good. When it's wet or busy, it's bloody terrifying. The road surface is abysmal in places and every time I've been my session's been cut short because someone crashed somewhere. It's certainly an event but it isn't really like driving on a track anywhere else- partially because it's so long and partially because of the quality of the surface.

I hear it's changed a bit in the last couple of years (a mate of mine runs a Cayman and goes down every year with a few of his work buddies), though I can't imagine it will have changed that much.

To be honest the best thing about it are the regulars and opportunities for hot laps as a passenger. Last time I went we ran into a group of Irish guys who come so often they actually have a lock-up/workshop nearby. They were running a crazy E46 M3 (Ohlins suspension, dry-carbon everything including front quarters and doors, forged BBS wheels with dry slicks and about 420bhp) and I got to ride shotgun for a hot lap. The first half was absolutely incredible- passing everything from single-seaters to supercars. About halfway through the lap, it started pissing it down but the guy barely let up at all, the rest of the lap was done basically sideways.

Worst crash I was ever in was when I was seven. My grandma had just gotten a new van, a Pontiac Transport and we were driving around checking it out because it was the first new car my gram had ever had. We were driving to a place to get breakfast on this road off the highway. We missed the turn and had to pull a U-turn and this complete ass plowed straight into the back of my gram's van. The guy was doing about 45 mph and crumpled the back of the van, and muffed up his car completely. Earlier, my mom had a bad feeling, and didn't want me and my sister sitting in the third row so we sat in the middle of the car and well, we found out what the bad feeling was... The only people who got hurt in our car were me and my sister from smacking our heads together when the guy hit us, and thankfully the other guy wasn't too badly hurt, just whiplash and neck pain. It didn't bother me that I had a headache. I just felt bad for my gram because she had been saving up so long for a new car, and now that she had finally gotten it three days before, this guy had pretty much ixnayed it... And the insurance company didn't even give her half of what the car was worth.

Worst in terms of how nasty was the crash, well was a car pile up during kinda rainy day. Me and some friends were heading to a my house.

 

All started when a SUV didnt measure the distance and hit a car that was driving slowly, later we found that a vehicle spilled diesel, the SUV hit a sedan, a compact car too close hit the SUV, then a minivan and us we could react in time. Other cars avoided us, minutes later some meter behind us two other cars collided. A police truck came to assit and get rear ended. At this point the traffic realized about the accidents and slow down. The best part, the first responder ambulance almost lost control and crashed.

We didnt get injured. But the the adrenaline rush and holding ourselves thinking that could be rear ended by a speeding car was like too much.

Worst accident I have been actually happened in 2000 when I was 3 years old.

 

Don't remember anything at all, but it was a triple-vehicle collision. My mom's old Mitsubishi Expo was the middle car, a Toyota Tercel rear-ended us at roughly 36 mph and we crashed into the back of a greyhound-styled bus. Good thing I was in a CRS.

Worst accident I was involved in was when I was a passenger of the City Bus when somebody in a black Oldsmobile Alero sped out from a parking lot cutting us off and subsequently not giving the driver nearly enough stopping distance before slamming into the back of said Alero. After a few moments he sped away from the scene running a red light.

 

There appeared to be extensive damage to the Alero's rear yet for us the collision was the equivalent of a bump on the road from my Grandfather's old Cadillac due to the sheer size of the bus.

 

That being said I am very fortunate that was my only accident considering the driver's in my city.....Soon I will be purchasing an E-bike to commute.  :sui:

Good post.

 

 

i had lot of accidents during my c..t teenager life. the worst i remember i was full of alcohol and gandjha, and what had to happen happened. i crashed at high speed (between 70-100 km/h) in a stone wall with a Fiat 500. hopefully like always when i had cars crashes, even if i was c..t i always put my safety belt before taking the road. i crashed numerous cars during my youth. always badly drunk. and now that that era is definitely behind, each time a cop stops me and ask me how many glasses i drank, i think to myself 'good work'. i could have died, i could have killed, or worst injured people forever. none of these ever happened. i consider myself as very, very lucky. with actual laws i would have ended up in jail several times. now in France road laws are very strict, and this is a good thing. for some reasons when i was a teenager i was a real c..t, still don't know today what really happened then..
