Have you ever been in a serious car accident?
I died in a car accident a couple years ago
well close to serious, but he wasnt driving fast enough to flip they car
Old people drunk on happy hour toned me.... Only 4 discs shattered but two fixed and I'm thankful
T boned... Autocorrect
70+ mph with no chance to hit my brakes. I walked away with nothing but a chemical burn from the airbag. My Accord performed amazingly in that crash.
I've been rear ended. Thankfully nothing serious.
Knock on wood that I never do.
Flipped over 3X in a compact car. Very grateful to be alive.
A few fender benders. Totaled my mom's car, but it wasn't my fault. guy cut me off when I was turning.
My car went off a Cliff in Switzerland... Not pretty.... But I am still here to talk about it.... :)
Wow. Scary. Glad you made it!
Female Asian drivers smh
I am so grateful that they invented crumple zones.
Been in prob 6 or 7. Fortunately none serious.
a not so smart lady pulled directly out in front of me and I t-boned her in my logging truck. they had to use the jaws of life to get her out. thankfully she was ok
Single car wreck off cliff in high school and IED in Afghanistan.
I'm glad you made it back home safely.
A flippant teenager hit a comedian. Serious?
Flipped my car after hitting ice at 40 MPH. Fractured two vertebrae. That was 35 years ago. No accidents since.
When I was 17 thought I knew it all. Totaled my car and the other car my best friend was driving when we were doing 60 on gravel both in hospital for nearly a week. My fault and I pay for it still with pain in my back.
t-boned into a car with 3 guys, we were fine with some bruises but one of them broke their pelvis and had to get air lifted
I've been t-boned twice. Both
Both accidents left my cars totaled. My neck and shoulders are still messed up to this day from those two accidents.
Semi-Truck accident, yes. Wasn't my fault.
A deer tried to join us in the cab of my truck through the engine. Almost made it.
I fell asleep driving home one night and flipped my pick up truck on its side.
Yes, I was hit by a drunk driver when I was 7.
No, the most serious accident I've been in was merely a clash of side mirrors on a narrow country road. It was an old car and I bought a replacement piece of glass for only a few quid. The other guy wasn't so fortunate.
Also busted a couple tires in winter. One went to a buried curb invisible under the snow. I knew it was around somewhere but not that far out. A massive buried pothole got both the other tire and alloy.
Got hit by a drunk driver while crossing the street this past May. I also totaled my first car about 10 years ago.
I was in a head on collision with a school bus when I was five years old and was in icu for 10 days
Rolled my truck into a snow filled ditching because of black ice in a mountain pass late one night when I was in college.
I was fortunate to miss black ice once, only because a car glided ever so slowly off the road well in front of me. It would have been me if I hadn't witnessed it.
Rear ended @ 50 mph. Thankfully nobody was hurt
Similar outcome for me. On the freeway in Santa Barbara. Drunk driver ran and left her Dachshund behind. My car was totaled but thankfully no blood.
I'm the safest driver.
Which doesn't make you immune to the misadventures of other drivers.
While driving thru the foothills of the Rockies my blood pressure medicine rendered me unconscious with the cruise control set at 65. Witnesses said we did one full flip and three rolls. 3 day coma and we spent a week in the hospital. We're fine now.
Wife had both arms broken and still has 4 metal plates in her left arm. The air bag broke her nose. I had surgery and a year of physical therapy to regain use of one arm. But, thanks to air bags and seat belts, we're alive.
Wow that sounds like a big one. Sometimes it's the more spectacular accident that has a better chance of survival as energy is dissipated gradually. It's the dead stop into an immovable object that can be more lethal.
Yes and they said I should have died on impact but thank God I'm still alive.
My son has had a couple of accidents where he was parked at a friends house and someone hits his truck and does major damage. One was a drunk driver and one was a lady who "passed out" while driving.
I told him that if he was going to be in an accident especially with a drunk driver not being in the vehicle is the best way.
When I was in high school I hit patch of oil outside construction site on a rainy day, my car spun hit an embankment going backward, flipped and slid down the road on its roof, and I was only going 30 mph. Luckily I only got, a scratch on my wrist.
A few accidents but nothing very serious in which a real person was hurt beyond scratches and bumps. Totaled a car though. Not so hard these days.
Should I have?
I'm not a skilled driver, so I try to only drive when it is "off" hours.
Sort of. My car was once involved in a serious accident but I wasn't. It got stuck on railroad tracks but I got out before it was destroyed by a train.
Yeah, it was bizarre to say the least. Car totaled and I was without a scratch. I missed a turn late at night and went off the road with the front wheels getting hung up on the tracks. Car was undamaged until the train came by a few minutes later.
Wow! That must have been quite a sight to see. How did you get home?
After the train finally stopped, the RR people took my info. The driver of one of the cars that had stopped to check out the crash offered a ride. Strangely, no law enforcement agency showed up at the scene and none ever followed up with me.
The next day a buddy drove me to the scene and the car was still sitting where the train had pushed it. I called a tow truck and had it towed to my house. Over the next few weeks I was able to sell some salvageable parts...then junked it.
That's a very cool story.
Yes head on collision with a telephone pole. My car hydroplaned
I been in a couple as a kid. Both times not wearing a seatbelt & only one that was not injured. One time this drunk ass t-boned my parents car & we went spinning into a 8 foot ditch filled with water. Other time a trailer came off truck and hit us.
Yes @ 17 bought 1st brand new car after basic training went home on leave b4 1st duty station.
Stupidly at that time visited some girls with a buddy we were buzzed pretty well on smoke and drink racing each other home at 4am in blinding rainstorm
at speeds well over 100mph. I hit a huge puddle and hydroplaned into the other lane, got control as another car was heading straight into me.
Jerked superhard went into a spin knocked out 6 mailboxes on the side of the road then up a hill like the
Dukes of Hazzard through a tree missing the trunk by inches and landed in the living room of a Deacon of at that time my church.
Car was totalled I had a piece of windshield go through my cheek which I had spit out as the only injury
I was LUCKY
Holy carp. You really *were* lucky!
Seat belt according to State Police saved my life..
Very lucky! You joined the military at 17? Maybe God thought if you willing to serve your country as young men, you deserved some special protection. And thanks for your service.
Yes joined while in high school on Delayed Entry Program.
Left for Basic in Texas in July after graduating in June.
Remember in Tech School it was legal for 18 year old to be in bars in Mississippi but I was still 17 and underage.
Wow that's weird. It actually happened on Halloween night some years ago. It was raining and my car hydroplaned on the freeway loop. I hit the barrier and my car flipped over. We came out fine tho. I was dressed as Superman. lol
Brakes went out, crazy
An older woman was texting and she rammed into me at I'm assuming full speed from behind. I just woke up in a smashed up car, I didn't know what happened at first- I tried to drive cause I was in the middle of the road lol. Straight to ER.
I say with confidence that the seatbelt saved my life.... Buckle up everyone it's not always in your control!
I get the idea, from your description, that she didn't stop. Did I read that correctly?
I didn't see her coming but my car was so smashed in from the back you couldn't open the doors (2 door) car was totaled and she said she was texting so I assume she didn't notice the light I was stopped at
That's awful! I hope you were paid in full for damages and weren't hurt too badly. What happened to the idiotic woman?
She was at fault so her insurance did cover everything. Honestly idk what happened to her. Thanks though for being concerned
Knocked unconscious for a while. Not sure how long - woke up in the hospital.
I was in a 40 car pileup. I was the passenger. It was on the freeway and we came out of a whiteout just to see the freeway completely jammed with smashed up cars and a parked police vehicle towards the middle. Car in front of us dodged straight off
into the ditch towards the trees and the driver in my vehicle decided it would be best to just hit another car instead. It was glare ice so there was no stopping. After we hit, we got slammed harder from behind. Nobody except the police officer in
one of the cars we hit were even injured. It was amazing nobody was seriously hurt or died. The officer just got a nice bump on his head. Poor guy.
dead* not died
No, and even the bus accident I was in wasn't that serious. No one even got hurt as well as I can remember.
Wasn't serious but was rear ended by a dumb bitch at about 40mph who claims she had just looked away for a second. I had actually seen her coming in my review mirror and low and behold cellphone in hand.
Not sure if this counts: I was riding my bicycle when a car cut in front of me. Rear tire just inches from running my head over. Fractured my elbow and femur.
