Have you ever been in an accident?
Posted 3/22/07 , edited 3/22/07
Back in 2005 I bought a 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT, a 4 year old car with only 13k miles on it, that's nearly unheard of here in california.

So I picked it up, it was a sweet car 5 speed, 200 hp, off white.... nothing special but it
was mine so i was happy.

So My sister, my bro in law, and I were coming back from a wedding one day and we were on a highway that also was like a street due to the stop lights. With this type of highway you can get some seriously nasty accidents, unfortunately I was in one of those.

We're at a stop light about 10-15 cars back at a full stop, and out of no where I hear this really loud screech of tires. I have a "Broadway" rear view mirror so i can see EVERYTHING behind me. And all I see is this huge hulking SUV coming straight at me.

BOOM, a loud clash of metal and plastic, an explosion of glass and hissing of this engine
is the last thing I hear.

The cops say the SUV hit me at about 75 mph, and it completely crunched my back.
I ricochet forward and the front part of my eclipse crumples. My sister was in the back seat and the grill of the SUV missed her head by about 3 1/2 feet, that's how far the SUV plowed itself into my car. I open my eyes and survey everyone in my car, my sister is hurt and my bro in law is really shooken up ( hes a marine so I wasnt really worried about him ).
I get out to find the SUV was one of those full metal 1980's silverado.... story gets worse.
The man who hit me had no license, registration and top this.. insurance. 0 for 3.

Man wasnt arrested as it wasnt pre-meditated, but I just shook my head when i found out the reason he hit me... he was reading a map.

::sigh::


anyways 8 months later after rehab and everything, I get rear ended again in my spec v.
those I do have pictures of.. people in california cant drive.



k I pass the torch on, neeeeeext.

LMAO!! Well, I have been on accident before. But I will only tell my first accident in U.S.

We were from Sack n Save (you should know this). I was with my three cousins and we went out for a good time. So then, first we went to play at Fun Factory, ate at Olive Garden and we went to Sack N Save to buy some other things.

Just then, we were on our way out. We were in a four way kind of road (there is a stop light in all sides). My cousin stepped the gas when it lighed green. We were on the middle of the four intersected road (our way going to Pizza Hut) when a Dodge Ram hit us over running over 70 miles. Since our car was running only about 20 miles, we didn't stand a chance on that humangous force coming.

My two older cousins were sitting at the front and I was sitting at the back with my younger cousin. Our car was hitted at my side. Luckily, I saw how things happen so I took off my seat belt and run my way on my cousin's side. Of course, I bumped around the car. I didn't remember a thing. I could hear my cousin at the front screaming (the driver was a girl). But something made me laugh at my head, I had a cousin who is a guy and screamed like a girl, louder than anyone else inside the car.

Then I was dizzy, I could feel the car spinning and slipping. Then when it stopped, we blocked the left side of the road (but nobody or car was hitted during the spin off). When I opened my eyes, the seat where I was supposed to be was gone!! I knew I could have been dead if I didn't react on the hit.

So then, my guy cousin was the one who got out first. My other cousin at the back was the last because I totally squished him and he was only 5 years old during this time. But I could hardly moved my body because I could feel something really painful in my back. When I got out, my cousin just screamed at me and yelled "You're Bleeding!!".

After a while, the police came and they sent me at the nearest hospital. I got the cut from the glasses on my seat side which hitted me when I got out of the seat belt. I was fine, but it did really hurt.

After a couple of hours, my cousin said the man was arrested because he was drank and his license was already expired. Then I just laugh it out in my head while my cousin (girl) who just hugged me and cried.

Oh yeah, the what was our car? A Honda Civic I think. This accident was 3 years ago by the way. That car is ruin, but my cousin got a new car after a couple of months. I forgot what the name but the car was in 2000. The car whose symbol is 4 circles put together.

yea one time coming home on Christmas even. Some guy was high on mary jane and hit us from behind at around 60. Poor bastard was'nt even his car and it was some little sportscar. A firebird I think and it totally tore up this front. He admited fault. I cursed at him for being a dumbass. I was not wearing a seatbelt, but was in back, and would have been fine anyway. Volvo bumber works good.

well my mom, my sis, my friend and I were coming from the the mall..I just got a PS2 and was eager to play it...so my mom takes the highway so that we can get there faster.....while cruising on the highway this car out of nowhere careens all the way from the right side and hits us right at the end where I was sitting....the impact was so great MY PS2 FLEW OUT THE WINDOW!!! (damnit!!! why did I have my window down ) all of a sudden the car starts spinning and does 1 flip. well my sis and friend were okay! I suffered from a broken leg and I think 1 or 2 broken ribs. my mom busted her head a little and got some stiches... thank goodness we were all wearing seatbelts) I was crying in pain..(and a little for my PS2!! ) but as soon as I got out the hospital my mom had already gotten my another one!!

I've been in an accident and it's the craziest feeling because it's like everything goes silent then when you get hit by the impact everything goes in slow motion.

my goodness, weirdest feeling huh?

i been in a car accident, last year around june, there i was, minding my own business in my 91 honda civic ex, it was 12 o'clock on the morning sunday, well, monday morning now, the street sweepers usually clean round that time so i had to move my car, i was just driving round the block, to make a long story short, someone hit me on my passenger seat side, them stupid teenagers, on a scrapper, i smelled weed and alcohol on em, and i bet they didnt have a license, hit and run, my car was total wreck, i think they hit me on the fender passenger side, but where the engine is, man, i just got that car for 2,000 buxc and it only had 15,000 on it, my car almost flipped over, they where suppose to stop since there was a stop sign in that street corner, but eeek, shit happens, they wer prolly going 60 on a regular street when they hit me, it was 12 in the mornin and barely nee cops round this time, but then again, it mighta saved me a lot of money, since gas is a bitch now a days, lol, i managed to get away with it only with a sore back and a lil whip lash...

i almost got into a huge freak accident ! its kind of funny now that i think about it lol

going up a turn ramp to the highway in the middle of the night and it was raining, one of my tires blew out and threw my car into a spin right when i got onto the highway, i think i did 2 or 3 complete 360s ! it was like slow motion in my perspective, all i could think about was nobody better hit my car while im spinning lol

i finally stopped, facing the right way and i slowly pulled out into the emergency lane to wait for my friends to come and change my tire lol *doesnt change her own tires*
