So, I've been in the car alot lately (roadtripping across the US and such), and I thought, "I've never really been in a car crash." Which made me go over to the Pit and ask them as well. Have any of you ever been in a car crash? seen a car crash? just escaped a car crash?

I hate driving. Just thought I'd throw it out there.

I was in a car crash a couple of weeks ago, the car got written off and my friend was injured and got hosptilised for a few days, and also got quite a lot of compensation.

I was alright.

I've never been in one. I'm sure it will happen someday though. It seems like almost everyone is in at least one at some point in their life.


I've witnessed a few. Nothing serious though.


My dad on the other hand has been in at least 10.

i drove in to the dmv to upgrade from my learners permit to my license.
as i was waiting to make a left turn into the dmv parking lot, the suv in front of me backed into me.

the light was red.
i was clearly visible through their rear window.

the woman driving the car didn't speak english very well, and had her 8 year old son translate for her.
she told the police that i had driven into her.

what a bitch.

EDIT:
also she was driving without a license.

Never been in one, but a dude who just graduated from my school was in one this morning, and my parents could see it from my driveway. Dude broke both ankles, his pelvis, some ribs, and his jaw. He was a state champion wrestler, and it's just kind of weird to think that it happened so close to me. It was in front of this old building that my band used to practice in, and there's still glass all in the road and everything. Scary, scary stuff.

A truck I was in got hit by an IED, but I wasn't hurt.

I rolled over my car on the track, it was like a 30 second barrel roll. Roll bar=alive me.

just missed a few on my bike, and have been in one in a car. Was not serious though, some old lady drove straight over a mini-roundabout into the side of the car I was in

Never been in a proper crash, the closest was being clipped by a drunk guy in Tanzania, which did nothing more than crack the rear bumper

One time some woman behind us tried to pull out of a parking spot and she ever so slightly bumped the back of the car.

I thought I was gonna die!

Very nearly hit a guy in a Focus when he pulled out of a sideroad as I was going 40mph (Legally). Only avoided it by doing the whole SLAMBRAKESSTEERHARDLEFTOHMYGODWHATWASTHATAMIALIVE routine.

Missed by about one inch, srsly.

Wow looks like he needed to Focus more

#25
I'm surprised I haven't, my sister has been in at least five, and I she has to drive me around a lot... She almost got us killed once, but it was narrowly avoided.
#26
yer ive been in a few but not write offs or anything

my brother has written off 3 cars in the past 4 years.

one of them was trying to avoid a sheep and he almost rolled off some mountain but luckily he hit the side of some tree on the edge of the road and rolled over several times onto a field. my brother is a dick.
#28
I got t-boned. I was expecting this huge crash and everything when they were about to hit me, but it was pretty uneventful. I heard a thug and just kind of spun around. I was at fault though... so it was pretty gay.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.


I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.

I span my car when joining a motorway. My best friend was in the car and I have no idea how we didn't hit anything or die.
No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable

i've been in one. i was making a left turn onto a one lane (each way) street with a median. a car in the oncoming lane was turning onto the street i was turning off of, so they were slowing down. i pulled into the street to make the turn. there was another car behind the car making the turn, and they didn't want to slow down (they were speeding) so they went into the median to go around the slowing car in front of them. we collided in the median. i was said to be at fault.


My mind is going. I can feel it.

That's bull****

As for me, i am yet to have a crash, though i drive pretty carefully and am usually pretty aware of whats going on around me.

You span it? I'm surprised you didn't hit anything. Hopefully you brang it to a tire shop to check the tread on your tires.
