This is my friends (Diedre age 16) car after she flipped it
end over end. The girl had just left my best friends house with
him (Dustin age 15) in the car with her. Diedre was going 85
mph Dustin said. About a quarter mile away BOOM! Diedre is from
Lubec, and Dustin is from Campobello. I usually go over to Campobello
to hang out with Dustin. Where this accident happened too, there
was a crash there a few feet away just a couple weeks before.
It would be that accident where the bug flew into the car causing
him to crash. Well heres how this one happened. Diedre came up
over the hill speeding. The car began to fish tail, they tried
to miss a van that was in the road and went into the ditch, hit
a culvert, ramped a rock wall and flipped it end over end once.
When they hit the ditch Dustin was ejected through the windshield
about 40 feet. He almost landed on a fence! He got up and tried
to walk away not knowing what just happened. Some guy came out
of his house and grabbed him and held him down and applied preassure
to his arm. Thank god for that guy! Neither one of them was wearing
a seatbelt. Diedre was ejected from the car as it was in mid
air I guess. I asked Dustin how he made if over the airbag and
out through the windshield. He said it never deployed when he
was in the vehicle. They were both taken to the hospital by ambulance.
Dustin was airlifted to Bangor hospital for higher care. He needed
a blood transfusion and he needed to go into emergency surgery
to repair his arm. The windshield almost took his arm off. You
can see in the photos on the broken windshield his blood. If
the doctor at the Machias hospital didn't double knot his stitches,
he would of bled to death. That was his worse injury. No broken
bones. He also got bad road burn on his face and cuts everywhere.
He also had 12 staples in his head. There was about 50 staples
in his left arm and about 20 stitches in his right hand. Diedre
on the other hand got a broken back, and broken pelvic bone.
She stayed at the Machias hospital, and he stayed at Bangor hospital.
They was both in the hospital for four days. Dustin spent 1 day
in ICU though. Here is the part that got me. The day before that
accident me and Dustin set aside our differences & made up
and became best friends again. We both said it's better to be
friends then fight, cause you never know what life has in store.
Next day I find out he was just in a bad accident and they think
he could die. I drove all the way to Bangor to see my friend
too! Even though we had our differences, I was still by his side.
His mother who found this very werid. The accident happened on
the 13th and Dustin had 13 dollars in his pocket. Although the
accident happened on a Sunday. Still weird though. Dustin will
never have full movement of his arm again. He won't be able to
do much of the things he used to do. Diedre is gunna have one
long road ahead of her too. She will not be able to do much of
the things shes wanted to do. Or aleast not anytime soon. The
best part about it though, is that they're both alive! So if
your fighting with someone. Be a friend, set aside your problems,
work it out! Cause like I told Dustin, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT IS
GOING TO HAPPEN! I've always told Dustin to wear a seatbelt,
and he didn't. I told him if he was ever in a car accident where
the car rolled, he was gunna be ejected, he looked at me and
said it was bound to happen. I mentioned that to him in the hospital,
and he said he should of listened to me. He buckels up everytime
now! As well as he and everyone else should! REMEMBER! ALWAYS
BUCKEL UP and be a friend! You never know what life has for you
around that corner!
