Accident


This week so far has been absolutely busy for me. I have been practically living in my office.. morning I am there before anybody on my floor shows up and in the evening I am there until the next day morning. So after working my non-regular hour on Monday evening I was returning home, when me and a colleague of mine got involved in a car accident. It was around 12:30am and we had just dropped a lady colleague and were heading home. We were taking a U-turn and there was a fast approaching truck coming from our left. The truck driver started flashing his head lights, which either our cab driver didnt see or chose to ignore. The truck driver on seeing that the car is still turning, instead of slowing down decided to continue at the same pace and pass through the left side of the road. Unfortunately there wasnt much space for the truck driver to do that and instead of going to the left, he rammed into our car. Since our car was still turning it got hit on the left side.. where I was sitting. I was totally shaken my impact. I hurt my knee and my shoulder, while my colleague was hit on his knee. The truck then hit brakes and then swerved to the right and then tipped over. We were fortunate that in this accident neither party was badly hurt. The truck driver suffered a minor leg cut, while we escaped with some bruises. We were lucky that night, we were in an Ambassador and not an Indica or another small car else it could have been a lot worst. Oh well.. now everytime I pass through the route (which is everyday) I just think of what could have been and how lucky me and my colleague were.
