    I Got Hit By A Car Once.

    I got hit by a car when I was about 13 years old. It was stupid, really. I was getting off the bus and I got off at the wrong stop. Instead of turning around and using the crosswalk to cross the street, I decided that walking into oncoming traffic was a better choice. I mean...

    Ow

    Damn Neighbours. They really don't like me. They turned into our close and only gave me enough time to push all the kids onto someone's drive. I'm pretty sure they were going at 30/40 mph. They stopped once they realised they'd hit me. Being slightly neighbourly they got out and...

    and I had my music on and this car came zooming down and hit me, thankfully no major injuries. Was so funny though, my friend on the other side of the street Snapchatted it after she knew I was ok.
