Fender Bender

Last Friday I was in a car accident with my bestie. It wasn't exactly a fender bender. It was a bit more then that.

Our girls go to the same school so we usually run errands, have breakfast, and what nots together. It was just another ordinary morning of us hanging out but little did we know we weren't going to make it far in our little morning adventures.

We seriously didn't make it far from the school at all. Maybe 500 some feet before she ran a red light and hit another car. It all happened so quick. Normally, I am very observant and notice those kind of things and I didn't even see it until it was too late. I'm a pretty paranoid passanger. The last thing I remember seeing is that little red light going over my head.

There were 4 young men in the other car. 3 of them were already out of the car before we were and one guy never got out of the car. They all left in an ambulance for one reason or another. We did later learn that they were all okay and the nurse said that 3 of them were just pretty much pitching a fit. Regardless,I'm glad that they were all ok!

They weren't all that nice at the scene of the accident(except for one of them) and kept yelling at my friend. I don't know many times I heard,"Man,why'd ya hit ma car?" It's not like she intentionally did it.

She ended up going to the hospital after her car was towed and had a sprained neck. I opted out of going. The EMS looked me over at the scene and I really wasn't hurt to where I felt the need to go. 

I got a few bumps on my leg from the dash and nasty little bruise from the seat belt. Thank God for seat belts!! If we didn't wear our seat belts we could have been seriously hurt. I will take my nasty little bruise from a seat belt any day of the week!

If you don't wear your seat belt, PLEASE start doing so. You never know when an accident will occur. Better safe then sorry!

While my friend was at the hospital a 5th guy showed up claiming that he was in the car accident. He's not on the police report, and we didn't see him. We are thinking that IF he was in the car he fled the scene before we even got out and was scared to get in trouble with Mommy and Daddy or had a warrant out for his arrest. He showed up with his mom who said he was suppose to be in school.

 The accident doesn't look to bad from here. We were in the white car and the other car has a lot more damage to it. The tow truck guy said it doesn't look like we hit them too hard but it sure does feel like we hit them hard.


 Not too bad. I thought it was going to be a lot worse then that!

That was a few hours after the accident. I had red marks on my neck from the seat belt. The bruise got much more colorful the next day and really spread. It ended up going to my breast bone.
As if my morning wasn't bad enough when I got home I went on our back porch and sat down to call my mom and next thing I know I feel this fire in butt. I jump up wondering what is going on. It hurt so bad! I got stung by a bee. I mean really, only my luck!



  1. Oh wow, Happy you are ok!Things like that can be so scary!

  2. I am so sorry about your day! You got to laugh to keep from crying. The bee sting actually made me giggle (sorry)...I'm glad you and your friend are ok!

  3. Yikes! Glad everyone was okay! I was just in a car accident a couple months ago. Such a stressful situation. The gal I hit was really mad and rude too.

  4. I'm so glad you were ok!! I don't know what I would do without you!

  5. I'm glad everyone was ok! Accidents are not ok. And the bee sting, oh my. Sorry!

  6. That sounds like a pretty terrible morning! I'm glad everyone was ok!

  7. After an accident, did you consider having a checkup? Not having any bruise or injury is not enough to be sure that you are really okay. The red marks slowly appeared, which could indicate an underlying problem. Anyway, what happened to your best friend and the other driver? I hope they had a good settlement in the end.

  8. I'm wondering how you settled it. You mentioned that some of the guys from the other car threw an outburst, and we know it's a little harder to explain to people, who are convinced that they've been aggrieved. More so, make them understand that it wasn't intentional. Glad everyone's okay though! Allan@Allan S. Blott Q.C. Professional Corporation of Lawyers
