Re: So I got into my first real car accident. . .

I am glad that you are OK. Accidents are scary things and my experience (as driver though and similar speed) is like you said. But another time a car hit me and I didn't see them coming. These both happened on the same year many years ago but neither was my fault but I don't care as long as nobody was hurt.

Re: So I got into my first real car accident. . .

Man I am glad everyone is ok! Brings back memories for me too.......long story short I went through a light (it was green I had the right of way), but the guy coming my way was turning. Went to go turn then stopped then literally waited until I was at the light to to try and gun it......wrong choice. I slammed head on at 50+ MPH and destroyed my car. Luckily I was wearing my seatbelt cause I woud have eaten the windshield big time! Getting flung around the inside of a car is VERY dangerous (not like I have to tell you that) not just for yourself but everyone around you. Anyway I'll get off my soapbox, but I'm glad your ok.....I remember having all the whiplash and the room spinning for about the week after that happened. Take care man and get some rest!

I'm happy to hear that you are fine! I almost experience that accident on my car. Good thing that my senses are not that bad and hit the brake before it hit on the car. Me and my passengers are terrified. A close accident is a terrifying incident what more of a real accident.

Re: So I got into my first real car accident. . .

good to hear you are okay. I had a good friend die in a car accident when we were 16 (he was a day younger than me). He was thrown from his truck..... probably would still be here if he was wearing a seat belt. It was one of the worst things ever .. and I have worn a seat belt everyday since (I'm 37 now) . Again, happy everyone is okay!

Re: So I got into my first real car accident. . .

+1 for seatbelts. Glad you're all okay too. Long ago when seatbelts weren't required, some idiot decided to rearend my mom's 79 T-Bird, in a drive-thru, with me in the passenger seat, no seatbelt, and sitting on my knees. Needless to say my forehead got intimately acquainted with the windshield leaving a nasty bruise, a couple days of headaches, and a shattered windshield (like when a baseball hits the glass). Contrary to popular belief, I'm just fine.

Re: So I got into my first real car accident. . .

Good grief, D!!!! Glad you were not too seriously hurt (I'm sure you aren't feeling that great though!)!
It's great you were wearing a seatbelt - those things really are life savers!!! My dad was in an accident when I was little, He was pretty messed up (picture a fat guy with a leg behind his head...) But it's better than... the alternative!!! Thank seat belts!

Again, Glad you are alright, and I'm glad you didn't have "a Paul McCartney"!!!!

Re: So I got into my first real car accident. . .

People who don't wear seatbelt or are dumb or don't care about their own lives.
Laws of physics are pretty clear, if car stops suddently, you fly.........period.
If car makes a fast curve, you fly..............period.
The question is..............what about rollercoasters without seatbelts, would you ride them?
I guess not
Several times I saved myself from a huge car accident because dumbasses almost hit my car, I had to break strongly, sometimes I had to turn away very fast and sometimes both things, without a seatbelt I probably would be dead now(yousef would love it ).
Seatbelts uncomfortable?
How is that possible cause for real, I don't even notice its existence when I'm wearing it.
Just like Damien said, windshields are uncomfortable................. seatbelts are angels.

Re: So I got into my first real car accident. . .

That's like a flashback for me bro, I was in the same situation with an ex gf 3 years ago. Got t-boned by a minivan in her little white girl car. Unwashed passenger, and it hit my door, so I pretty much kissed the bumper of than minivan.

Glad to hear your alright, and intelligent move on wearing the seatbelt, too many people don't.

Glad everyone is ok! The green arrow means you have the right away. If it's just a green light, it's a different story and you have to yield to oncoming traffic.

He's fine. Not sure what he's up to (since as some know, I no longer live with him). I'm guessing just a lot of work but I could be wrong.

Glad everyone is ok, accidents are always bad. Glad your Dad didn't have to post a worse message.

Where has your Dad been anyway, hasn't been around lately. He ok? Worried I haven't heard from him.
