I was in a car wreck
My boyfriend and I were on our way to his house last night at around ten-forty-five. We wrecked within 50 feet of his house. We were slowing down and turning, and another truck came flying by and hit my side (drivers side) of my mums Pontiac Firebird. The truck ripped the gas cap off the car and put black streaks all over the side of the car. It also ripped the fiberglass above the front wheel off and shoved the wheel inwards. Our airbags were deactivated (I wasn't aware of this fact until later) but we ran off a pretty steep bank into some lady's yard. The police said that if we had been turned just a little bit more when the truck hit us, that the car would have flipped.
The truck went on to tear across the lady's yard and barely missed her house. Instead, he hit the porch steps (7 steps of pure, poured cement)... The steps were literally obliterated... strewn all across the yard.
Both the car and the truck were totaled. The car is repairable, but the truck isn't...
We were all ok... no cuts, just bruises and sore. I passed out after everything was over and was sent to the hospital. The ER doctor told me that I have a mild concussion and to rest for the next day or two.
Thankfully the wreck wasn't worse!!!
