Tara Black: CEO of Car Crashes

Tara Black, Writer Person

Car accidents freakin’ suck. I’m going to tell you about my personal experience with car accidents, both getting hit and hitting someone. 

Now, I should tell you that I got my license in June 2019 and didn’t get my car until July 2019. When my first accident happened, it was in October. As you can tell, I’m not the most experienced driver. 

The first thing I ever experienced was getting hit. I was on my way to school and I came up to a red light. I just so happened to look behind me and saw the car was coming up pretty fast. I didn’t think too much of it because it was a tad bit uphill. When I looked back at the light, all of a sudden, I got hit. My head didn’t really hit the headrest, but I do know my car started going forward, so I quickly pressed on my break so that I didn’t hit the car that was turning. Right after I got hit, the first thing I did was call my parents because I had no clue what to do. The lady quickly got out of her car and apologized. She was sad to hear that she was the reason for my first car accident. When I called the cops, it didn’t take them long to respond. We got the issue resolved.

Now, the thing is, I was terrified to drive. So since it happened on my way to school I decided to go back home and go to school during 4th hour. 

The next car accident was very recent. As I was driving home after school, I hit the car in front of me. Now it’s very hard to explain exactly what happened, so I’m just going to tell you how I felt. When I hit the person, I was already in tears. I was crying non-stop. Even when the cops showed up, I couldn’t stop crying. I was absolutely terrified, and I had no idea what to do. When my mom showed up after I called her I was expecting her to yell at me, but she wasn’t mad. She was just worried about me. 

I don’t know how hard I hit my head on the headrest, but my head still hurts from the accident. Also, my car is wrecked. My airbag didn’t go off so that means we can fix it. 

In other words, stay about two car lengths away from the car in front of you. Also, just, like, don’t get into accidents. They suck.
