Yes, I might not be able to get out of bed in the morning at the moment until my endone, paracetamol, and sheer willpower kick in, but I can get out of bed still. (and then I eat something so I can add anti-inflammatories and coffee to the mix)
I am bruised and battered, my ribs have muscles torn between them, there are grazes and bruises all over me, and one looks like a croissant.
But I have no head injuries, my neck and back are fine. I WALKED AWAY from this car. As did all the other people involved.
We all had our seatbelts on, and dual airbags in the front seat of each car.
Yes, the cars are fucked, but seatbelts and airbags saved us all from a lot worse.
The two cars were only going 60kph each. But that’s 120kph force when you hit head-on in the wet, then spin 180, and lift your head wondering why there is a bus-stop next to you…
Wear your seatbelt. Strap your kids in properly, use baby seats and the like.
Be thankful for the “nanny state” for once.
(and our public health system! The Ambos and doctors and nurses and techs were all amazing to me!!!)
