If you’re following me on Twitter, you’re probably aware of my car accident 2 days ago. It was pretty major but thank goodness I’m still in one piece.
I was stopped at a red light when a big truck decided to use me as a break. It worked! And the 4 vehicles in front helped out too. A little domino effect. Needless to say I got sandwiched.
Once I got my bearings back, I palpated my neck for pain and wiggled my toes. Ok, nothing major. I proceeded to slowly moving my neck and all was good (I’m a Phys.Ed. major, was massage therapist and know 1st aid). OK, where’s my IPhone? 😉 I finally found it behind my seat. It still worked! Called my best friend to tell him what happened and took my 1st photo.
Thank goodness for air bags! I tried leaving the car on my side but the door was jammed so I got out from the passenger side. The firemen got there first and did a preliminary health assessment. then I took a few souvenir shots that I posted on Twitter.
I had a nice ambulance ride with a very flattering cervical collar. Sexyyyyyyyy!
Everything went smoothly at the hospital. I was in and out within 90 minutes. And they even served me a 5 course meal. Mmmmmmmmmmm. ok, maybe not. 😉
What’s really funny about this is that I was on my way to FedEx my lighting equipment to my next client so I had my lights in the trunk.
Off course, they were in a shock-proof Pelican case but would they survive a 50km/hour (30 miles/hour) impact? Let’s have a look…
broken handle and hinges and cracked body, hmmmmmmm
oh… there is hope! 🙂
I guess not….
Oh well. Thank god for insurance.
The important thing is that I’m safe and sound and that I can keep on feeding you great tutorials on Yanik’s Photo School. 🙂
The lesson here is to keep your cool and to stay positive. I’m looking at the positive side. I’m getting free brand new photo gear and a new car! 🙂 How cool is that.
I would like to thank everyone on Twitter for your support!
