I can't believe this just happened. I was in the car with my boyfriend, Josh and his mom on Tuesday afternoon and we got hit head on by a drunk driver. Just now Josh was taking me home after spending the evening at his house with some of our friends and we almost got hit again. The other car was in our lane and swerved away just in time. I can't explain to you how terrifying it is to know what a car crash feels like and see one coming towards you.
We were so lucky that no one was seriously hurt on Tuesday. If the truck that hit us had been bigger, or if either car had been going faster, or any number of other things had happened, we could have died. I don't really know why or how I took these, but I got these pictures right after we crashed.
Everyone was wearing seat belts in both cars, but the truck either didn't have airbags or they didn't deploy, and the guys that were in it literally knocked the windshield out with their heads. I'm not sure how they are now, but the passenger in the truck seemed to be ok, and the driver wasn't doing very well the last I heard. Josh got a small cut on his face from the airbag and a cut/scrape/bruise/bump thing on his leg, his mom got a gash in her leg, a small bruise on her lung, and pretty bad bruising all over, and I got 8 staples in my head, 3 chipped teeth, I knocked all of my bottom front teeth loose, and bit my tongue really hard. We're all getting better though. We're so lucky that it was nothing worse than that. I just can't believe that it almost happened again. I'm really shaken up right now, but blogging about things generally helps.
