This is a story of an almost fatal accident that occurred on February 24, 2007 on a return trip from a visit at my Father's. It happened in Swift Current Saskatchewan, Canada around 6:30pm. It included my 1993 Pontiac Sunbird SE on a cool Winter evening. This is my story - these are my words.
On a routine drive home from work, I decided to stop by my father's house and say hello. On my way home, I was taking a 'S' turn - one that has been taken numerous times before, but that day, black ice was smothering the road way. When I went into the turn, my back hand went out and all I could do is hold on. I did a 180 degree turn and hit a tree at about 45km/h. The car collapsed all the way to make the passenger side of the car hit the center of the car. This was followed by a severe blow to my head by the intruding tree. I was not found for about 20 minutes and on arrival from my rescuers, my car was still running and i was unconscious and bleeding out. I do not remember 2 hours before the accident and 4 days into the hospital.
When i was taken to my local hospital, I was revived and air lifted to the RUH in Saskatoon Saskatchewan were I was in comma for three days. After an additional 8 days in the hospital I was released with a healing time of 12 - 24 months. Diaganosed with a severe ABI (Aquired Brain Injury) life has brought forth new changes that have been somewhat challenging for myself and other's to get use to.
Life is precious and I'm happy I still have fine. You never know what can possibly happen at any given second, so be careful and love your life, as it could be over instantly without warning.
Regards Mitch (Survivor)
