I Had An Accident!

Just a minor one. 🙂 Thank God.

But it was enough to damage the windshield and the driver’s door. 😦

The driver  who hit us was asleep. Can you believe that! He came from the opposite side of the road and crossed our lane. He hit first a Honda car.

When my driver saw that, he swerved to the right hoping that we won’t get hit. But well, like I said, he smashed the driver side of our van.

When I saw all those, I froze and I remembered shouting at the top of my voice. lol.. It was a very long “aaayyyyyyyyyy”…  The impact was loud and sudden that I hit my right arm with the seat handle. 😦

Everything was like a blur afterwards. I think I was floating somewhere else for awhile until the police was done with the sketch and the report.

In the afternoon, I went to visit my chiropractor because I was hurting all over. That and a good night’s sleep helped.

I feel somewhat better now, as I write this.

Thinking about it, I realized that life is fleeting. It could have been worse. If my driver did not swerve to the right, the small truck would have hit us head on.

From what I understand, the driver didn’t have much sleep the previous night. He smelled of alcohol too. Unbelievable. One irresponsible driver hit two vehicles. And wounded the Honda’s lady owner. 😦  Her name is Susan and I hope that she is well..

The side mirror flew. It went to the back of our Nissan van. I don't know how that happened.

Thank you Police Officer Petelona for your assistance. 🙂

I am glad for comprehensive insurance! Do you know that it is expensive to replace a windshield here? Not to mention the cost of the door’s replacement.  Sigh…

The driver who hit us, left.  Not nice huh?! So Officer Petelona, took his truck’s  plate. According to the truck owner, the driver who happens to be his cousin borrowed the vehicle. So yeah, never allow your irresponsible cousin or relative borrow your vehicle. 🙂

I’m just so frustrated and aggravated because I am suffering because of him. My back and neck hurts!

So drivers from all over the world. If you think you are not capable of driving because you are sick, you haven’t had sleep or you are drunk, PLEASE DO NOT DRIVE!!!!

It is unfair for your victims …. Seriously, think about it. Why should we suffer for your carelessness. 😦 Just because you don’t value your life, does not necessarily mean that we don’t.

Honestly, I don’t appreciate it.
