i was that close to meeting the end of my life and stepping into the other world. i got into a car accident. a pretty serious one too.
i was driving along Jalan Kuching to head home after a session on Frangipani on Friday night which then turned into Saturday morning. well.. i had two glasses of Laichi Martini but i swear i was sober after gulping down a bottle of mineral water
at 100km/h, along Jalan Kuching before the Segambut roundabout, suddenly without warning my streering wheel just went wild. its like it was possessed with a mind of its own. a mind... to get me killed. it swirled right and i would pull it back to the left. stepping on the brake made things worst and eventually after split seconds of duel with the steering wheels, i crashed to the right road divider and swirled 180 degrees and my back bumper hit the road divided which put a stop to my car
As i gulp with fear, my mind was set to get to the other side of the road as i am currently in the death zone-the fast lane, againts the road. my main fear was being hit buy a speeding truck or bus as i was trying to struggle to reach the safety zone. i mumbled a short prayer and i trust in God to help me through this. and somehow, i made it.
i knew i was uninjured. just traumatised. then. i started making calls. to my dad, some friends and the car assistance hotline. there were many many people crowding the scene. i did not like what was going on. as time passed my friend which i've just met for the first time that day, *Marvin , along with his friends arrived at the scene. they really helped console me. my dad finally arrived after what felt like forever. my heart immediately was at ease when i saw my dad. i ran to him and gave him a hug and started sobing a little.. mumbling "di.. im scared........"
he assured me everything is fine and he loves me. i did not want to let go
well anyway, it was an excruciating experience and i hope it won't ever happen to me, my family or my friends. ever. i am back driving now. very very slowly and carefully. and heck i am filled with fear as i grip the steering wheel tightly. i guess i was still traumatised. oh ya apparently what happened was, my tyre burst. that was the cause of this mishap. sigh.
anyway.. here are some pictures of my car..
yeah the poor victim was my baby BOB, my 5 month old Toyota Vios. Baby is now somewhere in a factory to be healed. miss my baby.
my windshield cracked too..
my bruise due to impact with my left hand glove box...
all i can say is i am glad that i am still alive and i appreciate life more now. whenever i close my eyes i think about the incident that nearly robbed me of my life. shattering my family and friend's hearts.
*LOVE LIFE. DRIVE SAFE. DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE*
!!!! THANK YOU *MARVIN and friends FOR BEING SO KIND AND HELPING ME WHEN I AM IN NEED ALTHOUGH I'VE KNOWN YOU GUYS FOR MERELY HOURS!!!
