18 Wheel Semi Truck Crash

This happened on March 24th, 2005, on the Alcosta onramp to 680N in Dublin. I had just dropped off my boyfriend and was getting on the freeway to head home. I saw a bunch of flashing lights on the other side of the freeway and was trying to see if it was an accident (ironically) or if it was just construction, and I was also trying to light a cigarette and roll down the window all at the same time. I guess I got too distracted because as I was heading down the onramp I drifted to the side and clipped the curb. My car went out of control and before I could stop it, my car hit gravel and spun sideways. As soon as I saw what was coming I closed my eyes and covered my face with my hands, and I was sure that I was going to die. I t-boned an 18 wheeler semi-truck, got stuck underneath it by the back tire and dragged for a long distance. After what seemed like forever my car spun free and ended up facing the wrong way in the shoulder. My car was right up against a guard-rail.

When I looked down, my hands were bright red (it was coming from my legs) and I had glass everywhere....even in my eyes, my nose, and in the hole for my tongue ring. The lights from the other side of the freeway just turned out to be construction, and the workers rushed over to help me. One of them gave me his jacket and pulled me out of the window. I ended up needing minor plastic surgery on my knee, but other than just it was just minor cuts and bruises. The paramedics told me I was lucky to be alive, and that if i hadn't been wearing my seat belt or if my air bag hadn't gone off I probably wouldn't have made it.

My front windshield, the back windshield, and both driver windows shattered completely. The hood was in the fast lane and was later re-attached in order to be taken to the tow yard. This was definitely the most horrifying experience of my entire life, and I still get anxiety occassionally when I'm in a car.
