Car crash

I did this to my Dad's company car when I was 18. It was late, I had just finished my shift at the pub, and was focusing on eating a donor kebab more than the wet road. The car hit the bank at the side of the country road, then flipped onto the roof, before hitting a tree at around 70mph. I didn't have my seat belt on, and fortunately was rolled by the g-force into the back seat of the car. Had I had my seat belt on, I would have been pulped.

No wonder I think about death a lot..

talking about a spin around in gleneagles? have lost control of the wheel and had quite a number of near misses too.

the weirdest and most wonderful for me was on a saturday evening, on the lagos island. it was strange to discover the engine still running with the key in ignition after its back-end had spun around about 3 or 4 times, and pointed me almost in 360-degrees of my original course. lest i forget the burning tyre smell! burning tyres and [something] like burning wires.

strange feeling isn't it, especially on discovering that you are still alive?

trust my nigerian brethren not to disappoint. as soon as i stepped out to inspect the vehicle, they began cheering and clapping. at once, i once experienced a burning hunger, got back into the driver’s seat and drove away as though nothing had happened. i felt so embarrassed.

that said, i have had nastier BANG! experiences but i would leave that for another day

I don't know why these accidents are happening. If they drived carefully i hope it might not happen.
Most of the accidents are happening due to OVERSPEED. Life is in our hands.
