At work doing the usual dropping off patients meds.
I was going down this road and did half a u-turn to park in a house opposite from where i was and then suddenly BLANK...
extreme chest pain, was disoriented had no idea where i was,i couldnt breathe.
WTF happened? I was in sooo much pain, the seat belt stopped me from eating the bag but my cap hit the bag and threw my neck back.
i has attempting to breathe, but the smell from the air bag irritated my lungs and made breathing that much more difficult, i look to my left and i see someone looking in the window and he opened the door and i didnt notice when i had removed my seat belt.
i rolled out of the car unable to keep my body up from my chest pain STILL trying to breathe and figure out what happened. I lied down on the floor and I forced myself to inhale and i started to regain my orientation and i turned my head to the left and i saw the other car. i saw the broken winshield " I ****in killed this guy" i thought to myself.
4 guys were all talking to me at the same time and i picked myself up and i started walking over to him and they kept holding me back, telling me to sit down. "IM OKAY, IS HE OKAY?", i couldnt understand what they said and i walked up to the guy and i think i mumbled asking him if he was ok. he nodded but he couldnt move much sitting next to his car and i started apologizing to him.
"are you ok" i asked?
"are you insured?" he asked
"yea i do, you'll be fine, everything will be ok.... I could have KILLED you... Im sorry i ruined your day, im so sorry dude... i didnt see you, i have no idea WTF happened."
i put my hand on his shoulder and i told him again " Im very,very sorry bro, i want you to go to the hospital to get checked"
the only witness was a guy that was behind me, shared the info with the other people outside and i remember seeing his face, he was drunk. he was one of the guys that helped the other guy out and talked to me, apparently i was out for a few seconds, and they thought i had died until i started yelling from the pain.
" Make sure that he goes to the hospital" i told the people that had gotten around and a little girl had called the cops and was asking me if i was ok and before i knew it the fire truck and the ambulance had shown up.
i started taking pics and i saw the impact point...damn guy was speeding, also no brake marks so i must've cut him off pretty soon and the impact from the yaris says where and the timing right where i was in the turn.
after i was done talking to my insurance and the officers gave me my citation, i knew i was at fault because i cut the guy off, didnt see the guy. the male officers said that he was obviously speeding and that if i wanted to file a civil suit he will definitely remember this because the amount of energy to launch my car that far back and his to keep traveling, i pointed out if he had seen how much he had moved the engine and when he saw it he said " he wasnt going the 30MPH speed limit, thats why you didnt see him". they were going to get the other guys info at the hospital, so that was my day.
another shitty part to this, i mean, other than the fact that i almost killed this guy? i had just ordered parts for the damn car last night.
