"I was thankfully restrained by my seat belt. The resounding clash of metal and tyres screeching kept on ringing in my head."
"I could not believe anything could make such a loud bang let alone that I was in an accident. All of a sudden I realized I was alive. The woman driving in front of me came out of her car.The man who hit me behind came out of his car too."

Aye mi!” He was saying. ‘All this one is just film’ I thought to myself.
"I looked away from his dramatization and searched out an officer to speak with. “This is my Mom’s car,” I said plainly to the officer who presented himself to me. “Please ensure that this man fixes this damage.” The Police officer nodded vehemently and said “The Police is your friend, don’t worry.”
"We went to the station. They said we should both write statements. I called my big brother whom I had spoken to when the accident occured. “We are in the Police station in by the traffic light,” I said when he picked up the phone."
"He was with me I’m 12minutes.It wasn’t Until after I had written my statement, Spoken to my Mom and refreshed the events of the afternoon in my mind that I realized the one thing I missed all along."
