Hello everyone!
I had quite the eventful and rather scary Monday morning... I was involved in a six car accident on my way to school! Talk about being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Just on the road before I pulled into my school parking lot, I was jolted harshly in my car without any notice and the first thought in my mind was, "Oh my goodness, I just got hit!" I pulled over to a near driveway to get the insurance card of the person who hit me, only to see when I got out of my car that there were five other cars pulled over with blinking lights!

I quickly ran over to the nearest car to ask what had happened and she didn't really know either. It wasn't until the police arrived at the scene a few minutes later and did a lot of questioning did the confusing story unfold. The 'fifth' car hit the car in front of it causing a chain of events, but then a 'sixth' car came up behind the fifth one and hit it, then causing a whole other chain of dominoes with the cars. Luckily, I was car number 'one' so I was the last car to get hit and suffered the least damage of all of the cars. The police didn't even end up taking pictures of my car or even giving me an insurance card because there was nothing but a barely visible scratch. I seriously got out lucky! My bug is such a trooper.

Car number 'six' and car number 'five' were both charged and it really stinks because they are both fellow classmates of mine and under 18. No one was hurt too bad, but I do have to say I have a mighty case of a sore neck from whiplash!

I am just so thankful that the accident wasn't worse than it was and that all six of us got out safely... The whole experience this morning was so scary because I have never been in a car accident before, and it was so surreal that I was actually citing an accident report to police officers. I'm very thankful to God for watching out for me and always keeping me safe

With much love, Lauren.

Oh my goodness, a six car accident?! So glad to hear that it was relatively minor and that you're okay, just the number of cars involved makes it sound very, very scary.

I just love this look - the combination of your pretty white dress and red trench coat with the wilderness surroundings reminds me a little of Snow White :)

Wow that is so scary Lauren! I am glad to hear you are safe and your car is okay too. I love your outfit, you look beautiful as always! I always loved red and white together, it's so lovely. :)

Unknown said...

Wow I'm glad you're okay. Luckily you were the last car down the line! I often think about the rage that would ensue if somebody hit my car... believe me nobody would want to be the one to hit me! You must be a lot more calm than me! haha
Also, I love this outfit. The red trench coat is awesome and looks perfect with your pretty white dress.

Gah! A six car accident must have been very scary and very emotional at the same time, seeing as how you weren’t hurt more than your car was damaged. You didn’t seem to need physical or emotional therapy at all. You were right in your senses to come down immediately and ask for the other driver’s insurance card. At any rate, still take care on the road. :]

Mike said...

Whoa! A chain car accident is really scary! You’re lucky that your car was only scratched a bit and that you weren’t hurt. If ever, next time (though I hope not) you would need to go through a lot of process for such accidents and would need an attorney to deal matters.

Reading this and seeing the picture of the aftermath of the car already makes me feel the pain that this accident has caused. It really made a mark on all of your lives because you all had to go through the physical and emotional hardship of recovering from what the incident brought.
