car accident

by
At 3:30am I made the mistake of trying to drive to work. The road was in no condition to drive after flooding rains. I hit a part of the dirt road that the water had washed out into a ditch. The airbag went off in my face and broke my windshield. It was pitch black outside and I thought I had totaled the car. By the time I woke up my family and they took a look at it, the car was mostly fine (except for the windshield and airbags); I'm not seriously injured. My stepfather bitched at my mom about how I don't pay enough rent and how I better not expect him to pay for any of it (I never asked that of anyone; I can afford to fix the windshield). I need rest. I'm shaken up and scared. I thought I had destroyed my car. If this fight between my parents continues, I'll have to move out (which would be very difficult, but not TOTALLY impossible without a roommate). I'll be around.

Good to hear you are okay so far and your car is not to bad damaged. You must have had a guardian angel.

Wow... Crap I know how it is to drive on those dirt roads too, we have them all over in Iowa for the farmers and the middle of nowhere area's. Thankfully you sound okay as well as the car, well besides the windshield and the airbag. Make sure that when they replace that you go to a reputable place... to many stories of cheap ass mechanics replacing them with phone books. :/

Sucks with the parents, sounds like your step dad is about as much a jerk as mine. He should be concerned about you not a billyou never asked him to pay. If nothing else it should be his ass on the doorstep thinking like that.

Just about any place will come out and replace the windshield for $200. The airbags... well I'll most likely just duct tape those down if they're expensive. I drove for years, and even got in a collision, without airbags; I felt LESS safe WITH the airbags.

glad you're fine, airbags and seatbelts have proven that they save lives, even though they're disposable.

Your step father needs to back off, this was a close call, even if you weren't seriously injured, it's still serious... and with it coming to rent, bah... it's up to your mother

He's on pain pills and his mind doesn't work rationally. But if he is willing to make my mother's life more difficult, I'd feel really bad. She works so hard.

Car accidents are the worst Eiko.  Glad you're mostly ok.  Get checked out by a doctor anyway, if you can.  Whiplash can be nasty and have ill after effects.
