The Day I Almost Died
I was in a terrible car accident on November 19, 2005 that almost killed me. This is what happened. My dog was due for one of his vaccine shot, and we had an appointment with the vet on November 19, 2005 at 9am. My husband was the driver and I was the passenger. We were driving for about 10 minutes and we were approaching a stoplight that was yellow so we slowed down, then it turned red so we came to a complete stop. Six seconds later, BOOM! A car hits us from behind. My husband said I was screaming before I was knocked unconscious. We were hit from the back that caused us to spin around and collide with another car on my side. My husband saw me bleeding from my ears and my head so he started to apply pressure. People on the streets started to call the cops, it was a 5 vehicle collision, me being the most injured.
The ambulance rushed me to the hospital. While being aided by the paramedics my husband saw the man that hit us. The man was saying "No, Not my new car!" I got surgery on my head, they had to drill a hole to release the pressure on my brain. I was in a coma for 10 days. Because of the accident I suffer from short term memory, which is the reason why I don't work nor go to school and this has led me to depression.
