I was on my way home at 10:40pm on a quiet road along with only a hand full of other cars at 40-45miles per hour on Victory Blvd. BOOOM! Car crash. As I approached and passed the intersection, being sandwiched by two cars on each sides of my car, (front right and back left) first thoughts in my mind were my parents. Whether to ask for help, or how they would feel (worried, angry, relieved etc.), my thoughts were their being. Thank God I’m okay, nothing extensive. Everything went slow motion but fast at the same time, “What do I do?” “The car left, where did he (the other car) go?” . As i stepped on the gas, I can tell that the car isn’t drivable, I had to drag it to the side. I stepped out of the car, I can see the other two cars about half a block ahead of me. I walked over the first car, then the second car, “Are you okay?” “Did you get hurt?”. Everyone appeared too tired to worry about the cars and asked each other’s state of being instead.
Honestly, I didn’t know I was going to be in an accident today. No one ever expects to be in any. But I’m glad and I’m thankful that I was given another chance to live. If you’re wondering how I’m doing, Im okay. I went to the Emergency Room right after (the exchange of infos and police report) and spent a few hours there, got discharged around 4am. Other than my difficulty breathing, headaches, nausea, and my swollen wrist; my x-rays are fine.
I (red oval) was heading westbound, closest to the center divider. After I passed the intersection, the car (yellow oval) on my right sped up to cut in front of me to make a U-turn behind the car (purple oval) on the left turn lane of the ongoing traffic. My reflexes stepped on the breaks, but everything was too late. I crashed towards the front (on the yellow oval), flipped me just to hit (the yellow oval) again, then (the back of the car) rebounded to the left towards the other car (purple oval). This is the best way I could explain.

>Blue lines, is how my car rebounded.
>Spark Emoji are my first and last impact.
_Thank you to my Dad, my boyfriend, Michaela and Harold who stayed with me/helped me all throughout._
