I was in a car accident. It wasn't just me, it was Neil and Jen were in my baby, Marius when we were hit from behind by a moving van type truck.
We were turning into a restaurant where the best milkshakes in the world are. I wanted Jen to have them before she left to go back to her home state. Neil and I have had her here since Sunday, she's been so awesome and I think we're good friends now.
I was the driver; turning into the the restaurant, I had my blinker on, I was way ahead of all the cars behind me. There was oncoming traffic so I had to stop, but there was enough room on the shoulder for cars to drive by. That's what about three cars did before the van type truck car thing hit us from behind.
I was looked in my rear-view mirror just before it happened, I thought, with no time to react, that if I hit the gas peddle to go to the right since the car was going towards the left. But before I had time to put my hands on the steering wheel, we were hit. First we headed towards the left, then the right. All the way around so we were facing the way we had just come from, we were on the hill side. The road is kinda on a hill so the shoulder is downhill a bit.
Neil was in the passenger side (front) and Jen (rear driver side). I was obviously in the driver seat. Neil just had a scrap on the chin (with stitches) and bruises on his rib area. Jen had a slight concussion, her suitcase pretty much saved her life because it was crushed on preventing the back from hitting her from behind. She also has herback messed up. My hip area is really hurt and I'm on bed rest for today and tomorrow at least. I just got bumped on the head (not as bad as Jen) but yeah.
We were so fortunate because two nurses were going in the other way. They stopped and helped us out. I am so thankful for them. They helped kept Jen from loosing it, she was really scared, as was I. They helped to clean her up and keep me from loosing it.
The firefighters and ambulances people came and helped us out so much. I remember when the opened the door I was screaming in pain. My hip area hurt so bad I was screaming. Mike the ambulance guy person helped by pushing up on my hip to support it. He was good. I told him I thought I was going to be sick and his buddy said to just look at mike and do it. Mike said go right ahead. It hurt so much. I told Jen to not worry before they took me out because I was going to be screaming but for her not to worry because she was going to be okay. I had to scream. It hurt so bad. They took me out, got me on the stiff board, which is my least favorite thing in the world. Not to mention cut off all my cloths.
I found it really really odd that they took me to the farther away hospital where they're equipped with a unit to treat car crash victims and not Jem. She was so much more scared then I was. Either way, it took several hours, and many tests. Finally I was released, in the gown. They cut all my cloths off and yeah...
Now I'm at my parents house, where Neil just had to go back to our home because the landlords were finally fixing out tub. Thank God! He'll be back so he can lift me and such, I can barely move and am in bed except to go to the bathroom, and then it takes forever and a day to even try to go there. I'll be using a walker and/or crutches till I can walk without them. can't work! TT__TT
Also, the Subaru, Marius, died. The Subaru company is awesome. The car saved our lives. The roll away cage thingy, Neil has informed me, prevented the whole inside from crushing us. Even my mother said today, after looking at the totalled car, that we are so fortunate to be alive, and virtually untouched. The seats and most of the inside were still okay. Subaru is one of the best cars out there. I knew it before and now am living proof that it's true.
