Honda Accord Meets semi truck from Jaguar Heavy Hauling
Middleburg , Florida
This Story was the story of my first ever car accident just 2 months after i got my license at the age of 16! This accident scarred my life because it was my first accident and now i am 17 and have been seeing accidents on this website for years and now want to share!
This accident was with my 2004 Honda Accord in which a semi truck from Jaguar Heavy Hauling slammed into the back of my car. I had just got the car about half a year before.
I live in Jacksonville, Fl and the accident occurred in the country part of the city in Middleburg on Brannanfield rd which happens to be the busiest county road and unfortunately its a two way road and there's at least an accident a week. So when my week came around unsuspectingly in February everyone was just in shock. My accident was on February 7th, 2013 and was after a long day of school and band practice at Oakleaf High School. There was traffic ahead of me on my side of the road and a driver was trying to turn left on the other side holding up traffic. So being generous since i had to stop anyway i let him go ahead and turn. When he turned he caught my attention when he flashed his lights and pointed behind me and slammed on the gas to get out of the way. So i panicked to look in the mirror and just as i looked in the rear view mirror all i saw in a quick second was headlights and i couldn't do nothing but braced myself for what was coming. Just as i did, I was hit by a semi truck by the trucker had fell asleep at wheel carrying a full load going 60 mph in a 45. I was told that my car was totaled and was sold for $500 at a auction. When i was hit, I was hit two times and the truck was in the back seat of my car when i looked back and the semi trucks cabin was actually on top of my car where my trunk used to be! I had been pushed across the intersection and no air bags went off in my car so i was transferred to the hospital by ambulance.
The doctors when i was in the hospital said it was truly a miracle i was alive and walked away without any problems besides a sprained wrist! I do believe what the doctors said was true because its not too often at all that a person can walk away from an accident like that without life threatening injuries. Today i stand tall and play sports stronger than before!
If there was anything i would like to say to everyone out there, its not to take life for granted no matter what happens! Life can be taken away as fast as it was given to you. My sister died of a car accident a few years back just before graduating high school, Life life to its fullest and remember... A car is not a toy to text or drink and drive in.. They are machines and can kill in a matter of seconds!
