Have you ever been in a car accident?

Sure have. Was late for a very important college exam. (don't ask why longer story) Well I got stuck behind a very nice lexus which refused to do the speed limit kept doing 15 to 20mph under. and when passing lanes hit they would speed up...
Well I found my opprotunity to pass and I got the jump on them and I got passed them. Just in time to hit my breaks to do 40 aground a curve and turns out just rained on the other side so it was wet. Me not noticing I had 1 bald back tire started to fish tail. then I went off 12 feet into a corn field. tore up a good 40 yards of field and then parked the car back up on the road... I did 3 flips according to onlookers but I only had about $1200 of damage I had to put back into the vehicle to make it road worthy again.
Funny thing was, I wasn't scared. I was very calm as it all happened. All I could think about was how much this will cost me and I hope I live through this.
In any case the car I passed called the cops saying I was driving like a maniac doing 90 etc... anything they could say to make me look like a jerk. I only got a traffic ticket for failure to stay right.
The car was a 2005 Subaru Forester. It ran another 2 years after the accident and then I traded it in.0
My dad had an accident once when he was driving with my mum and me in the car. A guy ran a red light and we were unable to stop in time. We crashed into the back left hand passenger door of a brand new car that was only about 1 year old or 2 years that the very most. A ute that was in the lane next to us crashed into the front left hand door of the car at the same time. This car that was pretty much brand new was so damaged.0
Yes, two of them, but they were more than ten years ago. I've had a couple of close calls since then though.0
Yeah, I once got hit by a car0
Yes, but it was only mild though it was because of the person who took a wrong reverse u-turn.0

Yes, twice. When I was younger, someone rear ended my parents vehicle while I was sitting in the back. A couple of years ago I was in a head on collision, but it was minor. I had minor whiplash and bruising on my collar and chest. It was an elderly lady that swerved into my lane late at night.0
Yes, when I was 3.0
Nope, but have witnessed one.0
I've been in a few.0
