  • Car wreck

    So, after 12 hours of work (double shift) at P.F. Changs, I get into my '03 Galant which I paid for myself and start heading home. I'm on Capital of Texas Highway stopped at a red light when all of the sudden I get struck from behind by some woman(in her 20's) in a huge truck who was talking on her cell phone and had some drinks in her. She hits me at around 50 mph and my car goes flying across the intersection into one of those big street light polls (one of those huge ones that are lodged into concret). I hit the poll with so much force it FELL OVER. So my car is stopped and my door is jammed, so I pull myself out through the driver's side window, which is completely gone, and call an ambulance which arrives about 5 minutes later. The woman in the truck was perfectly fine and I am incredibly lucky to suffer from only a broken ankle. The seatbelt and the airbag in a car with a 5 star safety rating saved my life. Anyways, just thought it was a cool story to share.

        Haha, yep. I've realized the safety rating is the most important thing the look for when car shopping.

              Thanks everyone for the replies.

              leejo, yeah, homegirl got a dui plus many other tickets and a big fat law suit.

              I was headed south stopped at a street called Lakewood which is right before 2222. Usually by the time I hit that light I've got a cig lit up and got my arm hanging out the window. I'm just really happy that I, for whatever reason, decided not to smoke that night or my arm would be gone!

                The car was nice too :(

                Good job on being fine though. Idiots on the road man, they make me worried about learning to drive.

                  Yeah I know Lakewood. You can get up a good head of steam on either side of that light.

                  I just changed my profile from Austin to Houston last night. :D

                  Yes, smoking is very bad for you.

                      Just thought of something.

                      Bruce here mentioend his seatbelt. That's why I always wear mine. My parents do about half the time... and that's why I do all the time.

                      I'll mention this to them. Maybe they'll, you know, think about it?

                          I'm working for El Paso downtown. House hunting now (Garden Oaks maybe?) and renting at Buffalo Speedway and Alabama in the meantime.
