I sent this out in an e-mail, but this is for the rest of you:
I wanted to let y'all know that I had a car accident Monday night (11/10/08) on my way home from my knitting group. I didn't even see the SUV coming. I remember thinking, "What's happening? Somebody hit me." Then just flying glass and me screaming. I have a vague memory of the grill of the SUV in my driver's door window as it shattered. My car did a 180 degree spin before it stopped. I had a cut in my hair just above my bangs, glass cuts on my left hand, and my left knee was killing me. I was pretty much stuck in the car - my door and the back door were smashed by the impact. When the EMT's got there, they covered the passenger seat - because of the glass - and I had to climb out that side. They made sure there was no glass in my head and made me take off my cardigan and scarf so they could shake out the glass. I sat on the back of the ambulance to take off my shoe and shake out glass and they looked at my knee which was already beginning to bruise. They said I didn't need to go to the ER that night. I went to my Chiropractor on Tuesday and he did a lot of x-rays and scans and I've had two adjustments now and I'm starting to feel better. My knee is twelve shades of purple and blue. Yesterday morning I picked up the accident report and the officer says he can't determine who is at fault since we both say we had green lights. Okay, but I was going straight and she was making a left turn. I had the right-of-way. It makes no sense. I found out late yesterday that they totaled my car. Pardon me, but this totally sucks. I shed a lot of tears yesterday. I liked my car. It ran great. Had a great stereo. I have so many great memories in that car. I worked so hard to take care of it so it would last me a long time. So now I'm stuck getting a new car, paying higher insurance, and all sorts of other hassles. Like I said, it sucks.
