I Just Witnessed A Car Crash...

I was on my motorcycle, coming from a quiet night out, and I pulled up behind a car at a red light.

Suddenly, as I looked up, two cars, out of nowhere, smashed into each other. Neither of them hit the brakes. One car t-boned the other. The car that got hit was carrying four people, the other, two. The guy in the car in front of me got out to help the people in the cars needed any help. I pulled a u-turn and immediately parked in a lot in front of the 7-eleven that was there in front of me. I ran over to elp the other witness when I noticed one of the cars was on fire. I ran into the 7-eleven and grbbed their fire extinguisher. As I got to the car on fire, a police car pulled up and the officer got out of the car. I handed him the fire extinguisher and ran over to the other car to see if I could do anything. There were four passengers inside, and form what I could see, they were all dead.

I was retty sure they died immediately. More cops, ambulances, and fire trucks arrived on the scene. They taped of the area, and asked me to stick around because I was a witness. Apparently, I was the ony one who actually saw anything. After filling out a witness statement for the police, I asked if the people in the car were okay or if they were dead. The cop told me he wasn't sure, but from the looks of it and from what he'd heard, all four victims in the car were killed, and form the looks of it, they died instantly. I was in a bit of shock, but not really surprised, cause I was sure when I lookied into the car myself minutes earlier, I was sure they were dead without needing to check them.

The cops had me stay around altogether for about two hours, taking my statement, and making sure I wasn't too traumatized before they let me go home. I can't help but feel sorry for all the families involved, and I hope and pray that noone was drunk. It hit me at some point that if I had been at that intersection two or three seconds earlier, or if I was going just a little faster, I could have easily been in the middle of it, and I wouldn't be telling this story right now. I was on a motorcycle, and if the people in a car were dead, I certainly would have been, too.

I just want to say to you all, PLEASE be careful when you're driving, and when you're out on the road. You don't need to be at fault to be in an accident, and you can lose your life at any moment. Be grateful for the people you ave in your life, and the things you are doing and want to do. Stop living for tomorrow, and make every moment count, because you never know what will happen to you from one moment to the next. Take care of yourselves, and tell someone you love them, especially if it's been a while. Let them know how much they mean to you, and thank them for being in your life, and for allowing you to be in theirs.

Like Jerry Springer used to say, "Take care of yourself, and each other".
