Oh gosh......  
..... I was just in a car accident. I was heading home from work around 4:05pm, going straight (think I was doing about 40 mph) and had a green light. Suddenly this car makes a left turn and comes shooting across the intersection. I started to hit the brakes but it was too late and we collided. My airbags went off and I quickly piloted the car to a lot next to a florist. There were a few other cars involved too. After we collided the one car (that caused it) spun out and then hit another car. So now my car is banged up in the front... not TOO bad but the fender is pretty much hanging off it. Will have to get someone from my insurance company to look at it and I guess I'll be getting a loaner for a little while.

I'm feeling a little better now but still somewhat shaken. Luckily I wasn't hurt at all - my throat's just a little irritated from the smoke from the airbags. The thing that scares me the most is thinking what could have happened if I was going faster... I thank God that it was just the front of my car that was banged up.

OMG! I am **SO GLAD** that you are okay! Feakin g stupid drivers! That sounds almost like exactly what happened when I was in an accident 3 years ago. Someone ran a red light. And I hate air bags! That's what broke my nose and burnt my face!

Try to relax and take it easy you may not feel anything until tomorrow. If I can do anything for you, you have my number, just call me okay? **HUGS YOU** I am so glad you're okay!

Thanks so much for the hugs! *hugs back* Yeah the other driver was a girl around late teens-early twenties. And when her mom showed up she actually said "I had a feeling she'd get in a car accident." Ouch, the air bags broke your nose and burnt your face? That's awful! I'm still coughing a bit but I got the taste of the smoke out of my mouth.

I've been sitting watching some tv and feeling a little better but I guess I could start feeling something tomorrow. I'll definitely keep that in mind, I appreciate the concern Sue! :)

Thanks, me too! I'm just so glad I wasn't going any faster or it could have been a head-on collision. *shudders*

Thanks for the hugs :) *hugs back*

I'm ok, thanks for the hugs! I was so glad that no one was hurt... today my chest is a bit sore from the air bags going off but I think that will subside. I'm going out to dinner tonight with a friend to get my mind off it.

Thanks so much for the concern, really appreciate it :)

I'm okay thanks. :) I'm a bit sore but they said that was to be expected. I should be fine. I'm just glad that no one was hurt. It was pretty nerve-wracking.
