2 November 2014, I was in a motor vehicle accident.
I was driving down the road, fully aware of what was going on around me and not even listening to music at the time. I was felt pretty good about my day and the life that I was living at the time. With that picture being painted, of course something has to happen now.
While driving down the road I recognized a black pick-up truck that was not stopping and suddenly put their blinker on to make a left. I was able to pick up on the fact that they were going too fast to come to a complete stop and so was I and impact was imminent.
As this person cut right in front of me by failing to yield so I can continue on with my life and go about my business, I was able to slam the brakes mentally and physically preparing for impact.
As the driver turned and I slammed my brakes, I recognized that there was a passenger in the vehicle and at the last second I was able to turn my wheel just the slightest to purposely impact the back of their truck so that the least amount of damage would be done.
The impact was definitely felt, I’d know especially because the air bag went off right in front of my face. Lucky I was or maybe they were. Wrong I did nothing, but right I felt I did nothing but.
Playing scenarios in my head over the course of the coming days only to continue to reassure myself and my swift actions. No one was hurt, at least not physically. For that I am grateful, but was it a near death experience or was it just another day of life that we endure for more?
