Well I got a really nice 1997 Ford Ranger. It was awesome. I loved it. Way better then my little geo metro! Well I had the little truck for about 3 days now but no longer then that :(
Today I was driving home from taking care of my horse. I was driving up to a light that allows me to go stright or turn right on the highway. I continue to go stright. People from the oppisite direction are able to go left onto the highway or go stright. As I continue to go stright the people that are turning left from the opposite direction are supposed to wait. As I was driving I realized people were still turning so I let off the gas a little. This truck turn and I watch to see if the car behind him did.....and the car did...I slammed on my brakes to stop and then BAM I hit the guy in the side.
It was horrible. My car did like a 180 turn as it hit. My airbags went off..my head slammed into the airbag at the impact. I had my little fox terrier mix in my passenger seat. As I hit the airbag I saw in the corner of my eye my dog go flying hitting the airbag (My dog was fine..I was surprised he didn't break his neck). By the time my truck was stopped my face and arm stung and I had some back pain but nothing more then that thank god!
I looked over to see the guy that I hit not moving. People ran over telling us to stay in the cars. People were calling the police, luckly the guy I hit started moving but said he was intense pain. The cops and ambulances and firetrucks showed up. Traffic was horrlibe. My dog was okay. Paramedics rushed to the guy and me. They inspected me. I told them I was fine. They ended up asking me to go into the ambulance to do some more inspecting. The guy I hit was rushed to the hospital. I hope he is okay!
The cop said they cited the guy for an illegal left turn and that it was lucky he had no one in the passenger seat because they could of very well died. They released me as fine when my dad showed up since I am still a minor. I'm glad everyone is okay. My little truck protected me pretty well. Compared to my truck and the guys car my little truck held up pretty good, but its still totaled :( only 3 days of having my new truck gahh!!!! If I was driving my other TINY car I may not of been lucky. SO now i'm waiting to see what going on since the accident was not my fault....hopefully I will be able to get a new car soon again!
I'm also just happy no one was killed and relieved there was no one in the passenger seat of the other car. Even thou it was not my fault I would not be able to bear with killing someone. Well that's my little story that I have bad luck after trying to get a new car forever and I finally got it and then it was totaled. Now i'm back to driving my old car for the time being while we figure out what the insurance is going to do.
