the one with the 360

 
 

friday morning i was driving to work on the freeway and was in the far left lane. it was snowing and must have snowed during the night because the freeway was icy but you couldn't really tell. so i noticed traffic was slowing down so i slowed down and as i was doing so i hit a patch of ice and did a 360 meanwhile someone t boned me on the drivers side and i kept dong 360's until i was on the other side of the freeway down the hill by the on ramp (orem center) and ended facing south. and my car was slanted (thankfully i did not roll) and luckily i was smart enough to let go of the gas, pump the break and eventually pulled the e brake. i felt like i was in fast and furious. so i'm sitting there in shock. i pinch myself to see if i'm alive. pray, thanking that i am.then i call 911 & my dad. i'm sitting there in shock crying i see a white car on the freeway hit the same ice i did, do a 360 almost hit me and goes clear down the hill to the on ramp. about 2 minutes later a silver car slides off and the passenger gets out and is talking to the guy in the white car. suddenly a SUV hits the ice, does a 360 hits the silver car(almost kills the guy standing & luckily doesn't)- both SUV and silver cars go spinning down the hill and crash into the white car. at the bottom of the hill by the on ramp and get totaled. as i'm sitting there praying that no one hits the ice again because everyone kept sliding. then i waited for the police to come and get me out of my car. it was seriously one of the scariest things i have been involved in. i was so lucky to be alive and not be hurt.my neck and back are super sore from whiplash, but hopefully will go away sometime this week. my car has a lot of damage but luckily isn't totaled! i am blessed.

and there you have my first accident.

Oh my goodness that must have been terrifying! I hit a patch of ice on the freeway and went into the median a couple months ago. I didn't hit anything and had no damage to my car and that was scary enough! I hope your car is fixed quickly and without too many problems along the way!
