Bad accident last night

I was driving my girl and myself back from Seattle last night and we hit a windy patch of I-5 with a lot of standing water. Hydroplaned, lost control of the vehicle, and spun out, impacting the center barrier twice and completely totalling the car. Somehow she and I survived with only minor bruises, her laptop and giant camera even made it through.

But it was extremely scary and a serious wakeup call. Be careful people, and be thankful for every minute you are alive and well because that minute could be the last.

Glad to hear you're okay man. I know, scary moments like that put your life in perspective. But, a car is a car, you'll make it through this. Insurance is going to help you out right fam?

Unfortunately no, it was the lady's car and she had let her insurance lapse. So it's a total wash there. I'm gonna help her buy another since I was the one at the wheel during the accident.

she is currently sleeping the day away she was freaking out like crazy last night, but we have a very good support network and our friends cheered her right up.

She has some shoulder pain and is going to the doctor about it just in case, since she has a history of shoulder problems on that side. I somehow jammed my hand and its fairly swollen with bluish marks starting to form around my first two knucles, and I hit my head somehow (can't remember exactly, probably on the steering wheel during the second impact) and have a little goose egg, but overall I think I got the better of the deal in terms of injury.

The car isnt important, life is priceless and I'm glad to hear you both are ok.

Thanks for starting this thread, It'll certainly remind me to be more careful on the road this week-end.

It's just a car, as someone wise once said to me on here.

Everybody is very relieved that you and your woman are OK, and I'm sure you'll both bounce back quickly, physically and emotionally.
