    There were three of us in the car and my fiend was driving. I was sitting in the passenger seat so I had a great view of what was to come. As we slowed down coming if the highway and were about to turn we hit a puddle and hydro planed. We swerved around the corner to fund two...

    I Was In A Car Accident

    It was a little over a year ago, and what's driving me nuts is that the psychological damage just keeps getting worse.I was driving (I'm a new-ish driver, but my family and I were driving to CO and I had driven quite a bit already along the way, so it's not like I wasn't...

    I was about 5-6 (in the back seat)

    and my parents had just only been married for three days and my goofy, but awesome, (step) dad wasn't paying attention (probably staring at my mother—she's gorgeous). But the funny part was that the one of the police was one of my mom's ex-boyfriends (who I loathed) and he...

    I was learning driving at the driving school.

    My instructor went out of the car to have a drink and ask me to practice side parking on my own. Do note that I was driving a manual car. I got into the parking space and I wanted to get out of the parking space. While I was getting out, my car kept on "dying". I had to restart...

    I was involved in two car accidents in one week.

    I hate talking about it more than people could ever imagine. It has impacted me so much that I've fallen into depression. The first accident was not so bad. I was rear-ended and suffered back pain. I was just fortunate I was able to make it to my next class in one piece...

    I was involved in an accident this morning.

    I don't know why I thought I could drive in ice and snow. I wasn't driving fast at all but the road was just too slick. I'm thankful that no one was hurt, just my car, but I was needed a new car anyway. I guess I will get one sooner than I thought. So sick and tired of the...
