My photo this week was planned and I was going to write my post yesterday afternoon. However, things don’t always turn out as planned.
Yesterday we took the Little Man to buy his school uniform for his new school that he is starting on Monday. The day was going really well until we were almost home.
Graham was waiting to turn right into a street just two minutes away from home when suddenly we felt a huge bump and the car was shunted from behind by someone who hadn’t noticed we were stationary. It was a scary experience and at first I hadn’t realised what had happened other than my pain was increased by ten.
The Little Man was sobbing in the back seat but I couldn’t move so I had to comfort him with words. It seemed only a few minutes before I was being fitted with a collar and helped out of the car onto a stretcher and into the ambulance. Thankfully, the Little Man was okay.
Nobody was seriously hurt.
Taking stock this morning we are feeling lucky that nobody was seriously hurt. The lady driver of the other car was okay, saved by her airbag. And myself, Graham and the Little Man escaped with whiplash and bruises. I can’t weight bear on my left leg but I don’t know why. The hospital were not sure how to treat me as I had gone into spasm and was completely stiff. They couldn’t tell if I had any minor injuries but were confident that I had no major injuries so sent me home with leaflets.
Bernard, the car, suffered greatly and I’m not sure he’ll be roadworthy again. Thankfully, my wheelchair, which was in the boot, has survived the impact.
So, I put my chosen photo on hold and decided to share some pics that Graham took at the scene.
Have you ever been in a crash?
