My name is Tessa and I am 16 years old. I was recently involved in a pretty nasty car accident. It happened in Bronson, Florida, a small town a little outside of Gainesville, Florida. I was having some high preformance parts put on my 92 Camaro to give it some more horsepower, after the car was done, me and my brother went to the shop to pick it up. My brother insisted that he drive it first to check out how it was running, so I hopped in the passenger seat, and we started driving. About a mile from the car mechanics shop, there was a 99 crystler van sitting in the median headed the opposite direction, to take his left turn. The, get this, PREACHER, decided to take his left turn, in our path.
My brother slammed the breaks, but we were unable to stop in time, smashing his entire right fender and door. The speed of impact was approximately 55 miles per hour. At the time of the accident, I didnt even realize what was coming, and the next thing I do remember was sitting in the Emergency Room two towns away. After I came to and had an idea of reality, I realized that I had been knocked out from slamming into the windshield. I had some severe cuts and scrapes on my forehead and neck.
My brother, on the other hand, had much more injuries, including a broken leg, shattered ankle bone, dislocated ankle, dislocated 3 of his fingers, and broke two of them, over 100 stitches, and 3 broken ribs. Because of the way his finger and ankle broke, hes going to permanently have internal pins placed. Hes never going to be able to walk okay or have a job being on his feet. His entire dream of having a career in Law Enforcement is ruined because of the accident. He is still in the hospital 2 weeks later undergoing several sergeries for his injuries. Im lucky I didnt come out more mangled than I did. If i were wearing a seatbelt at the time, I probably wouldnt of been hurt at all.
Being that we were only test driving the car, and I knew my turn was up soon to drive, I figured not to even put it on, but its when you least expect something like this to happen, it does. About the only thing Ive learned from the accident is that seatbelts help, and accidents are some scary shit! Wear them!!! Tessa
Attached are some pics of my car after the wreck!
