Almost died in a car accident

So yesterday I was on the way to work, sitting in the passenger side. Suddenly, i look right and see this huge white truck not slowing down for the red light as we're turning. Immediately I try to wrap my arms around the person driving (didnt have enough time to warn him) before being rammed super hard by the truck, which sent us flying (the car literally lifted off the ground) The truck legit had hit us right where I was sitting - the passenger door. When I saw the truck not slowing down, I thought for an instance it was all over. It was the first time in my life I felt true fear. As soon as that truck struck the car, I let out what I believed was going to be my final plea to my Lord Jesus Christ.

Well, I turned out completely okay- as far as I know, not one shard of glass touched me. I walked away completely unharmed. Me wrapping myself around the driver actually saved my life, because after the impact of the crash i was essentially on his lap. I dunno if it's because it was the first car accident I was a part of or what, but seeing that truck speeding towards me and where I was sitting is something that will forever be cemented in my memory. I not only feel lucky to be alive, but I feel different in a way. It's not so much that I feel more grateful for life, but moreso that I feel much more diligent in what I do and where I go now. I feel almost as if life is something that can't be used carelessly, or else death could come to you at a time you least expect. That entire day yesterday, I legitimately questioned whether I was still alive or not until I fell asleep. One of my cats just passed away on Monday (had to be put down sadly and I was the only one with the balls to be with her during her final moments). Just as I thought I was getting over it and feeling like a stronger person through the experience, this happens. Admittedly, I can't help but feel a bit fearful for the future after all of this. I mean, if these two events hadn't happened so close together I wouldn't feel this way if I'm gonna be honest. But at the same time, I can't shake off the feeling that God might be trying to tell me something through all of this. I just hope that I find out what it is sooner than later.

I had a car cross the median on a 3 lane interstate. As soon as I saw her coming my way everything went into slow motion. I had time to look in front and behind me to see if I could speed up or slow down. But I couldn't, so on instinct I pulled my legs up as far as I could and towards the console. She hit me hard at the driver side corner. Ambulance came and they told it was a miracle that I wasn't injured at all. And that only race car drivers are taught to do that. Plus then they wondered why I didn't have high blood pressure. And instead had low blood pressure.

@TheMasterMan1 that's ridiculous. No cops?? Unfortunately for me I had just picked up my sister from the hospital and my dad went with me. I told them to hold on tight because we were about to be hit. My dad was a little banged up due to the air bag. And my sister who was in the back seat had no injuries either. But we ended up going back to the hospital. I hate hospitals.

Glad you’re ok. Those moments can really bring a whole different perspective. Had one a few years back that still send shivers
