Exit PointI believe that each one of has an exit point. I came close to mine several years back but some how I missed it and I am still here to tell the story. My story is tainted because I was extremely intoxicated. But intoxication was an accident too leading to my final accident. It was my friends girlfriends birthday, so the drinks were flowing like crazy in a famous bar and a known town of Princeton in NJ.
I usually drink beer or some wine but on that fateful day, mixed drinks were being passed around like water for the thirsty in the desert. I had never had this mixed drink that was offered to me by the birthday girl. Since everyone seemed to enjoy and have good time and I seemed to like the drink too, one drink went down like as smooth as silk. But how many drinks I had after the first is anyones guess. My friend at the bar made sure that I don't drive, so he called me a cab, and made sure that the cabby took me home.
At that time I live in the town of Kingston, just a few miles north of Princeton.
I was at that time a volunteer fire fighter living with a fir fighter and first responder too. So after getting back to my house I just blacked out. After a while I was all confused about my where about's and the first thing that came to my mind was that my car was missing and I left my apartment and started walking toward Princeton.
The next thing I remember was that I was in the car and another car was tail gating me. I was on a local country road going at a slow speed, but this car was coming too close to me from the back so I speeded up, and right at that time I lost my control and crashed into a tree, instead of pulling back I accelerated further pushing more into the harms way.
I hit a tree which had taken 3 peoples live in last few months. This was not a normal exit point but rather a unique one that still exits. God only knows How many people must have lost their life at this exit point.
I was lucky as the car behind me was a local security of Princeton University who called 911 and I was rescued immediately and taken to Trenton hospital. I came out alive with a broken hip.
