The 4th Of July 2007

I was in a car accident on July 4th 2007.

 

I had been living with my boyfriend at the time for about 3 months I believe, and we went to see my parents. It was nothing special just going to see how they were doing. My Ex Boyfriend had just started driving about 4 months before, I was 18 and he was 19. We got to my parents house safe enough. My father wanted some bottled water and ice, he asked my boy friend to take my sister and I to the store. So off we went to the store, my sister was sitting in the middle, my ex was driving and I was in the passenger seat. We had made a wrong turn so we took the next street.

  We were turning left on the intersection, when we were hit by a speeding car. The cops said it was my ex's fault. I woke up all I saw was a broken windshield, the light burned my eyes. I lifted my head and looked around, I couldn't find my sister. I called her name, again and again, then I started screaming for her. I hear her yell at me 'I'm here' and I relax, she's sitting out side her elbows on her knees and face in her hands.I turn on head and look at my ex, I tell him to find the phone and call my mom and dad, he says he can't find it. I get angry with this and start screaming for him to find it and call my parents. Everything is was fuzzy and I wasn't thinking straight. Breezy gets up and walks over to me. I couldn't move my legs were stuck, I looked down and saw why. My left thigh was bent in half in the middle. Breezy asks if I'm okay I look away and tell her 'What do you think?'  pointing to my broken leg, she starts to cry. I was really tired and wanted to go home.

  The ambulance came a little while later. A lady came up to me and asked me if I wanted her to pray for my, I said no that there was no god and she said she would anyway. A man I never met was wiping my face with a wet cold rag, it was a hot day and the rag felt nice on my face. Then a EMT climbed in the back and held my shoulders to the back of the seat, she said they were going to have to pry the door open. It was crushed shut, I had been T-boned on my side. I told the lady I wanted some medication so I wouldn't feel any pain. They pulled the open off and pulled my out, I screamed for my ex to come to me but he was busy with the cops. I went to the hospital and had surgery later that day.

  I have a long faded scar down the front of my knee two smaller ones ,where they cut to put the screws, on the side of my knee and on the side of my upper thigh, then a thick deep scar on the middle on the outside of my thigh where the bone came out. I now have a metal rod in my left leg.

  I love my scars I think their beautiful, it's a good story to tell to new friends.
