I hardly ever hear this word but when I do. I can only think of the car accident I’d back in 2015.
I remember like it was yesterday. I volunteer to work more hours in Lake Mary which is outside Orlando Florida. They were this tennis tournament somewhere in Orlando and I had to stand outside the team rooms. Just to make sure they were safe or didn’t walk around at night since they had to be up in the morning.
On the 15th of April, I was heading to work on a raining day. I was on the highway going to the Lake Mary Hilton. There was this white car driving right in front of me and it was kinda going fast. I didn’t realize how fast it really was going until we were about to make a turn and for some reason, the car slams its break right in front of me.
I was at least going 65mph, but surprisingly I was able to switch lanes at the last second. I was able to miss the car but I lost control of the wheel and Skewed right in the guardrail.
So many thoughts were going through my head before I hit that guardrail. I remember the hit and everything. But luckily my car was able to do a complete turn, so I only felt the side hit and I also had my seatbelt on.
I wasn’t hurt at all in the crash, I mean I didn’t even get a scratch on me. But my car? it was gone, the first car I ever had is total. The state trooper said I was blessed, he was also quite surprised I didn’t have a cut on me or didn’t feel any pain.
Since that day it always bothers me driving in the rain behind people but that didn’t stop me from living because I know life can change in any direction and I wish you good day.
