I didn’t actually take this photo – it was taken by my brother while I was in hospital. The car accident occurred on the 22nd February 2008. I have no memory of the accident, but have been told that I hit a tree and went over the side of a mountain. I was told that if I hadn’t been spotted by a passing vehicle I would have been dead by morning. The accident occurred towards dusk. The impact of the accident occurred on the drivers side of the car (I’m in Australia) and the photo shows clearly why my right side suffered the most injuries as a result of the accident. What happened? I have no memory of the cause of the accident or anything about it.
So this photo doubles up for both my posts today (which means there is only one).
Over the next little while I have decided to post photos from the past, to travel back over my photos and select photos to post from the archives. Today’s photo is from almost 4 years ago,
of what remained of my car following an accident that almost killed me.
I have no memory of the accident and what happened over the hours leading up to the accident and the hours following the accident. I apparently hit a tree and went over the edge of a mountain, suffering severe injuries as a result, including brain damage (from which I have now healed). I am very thankful to God for having not only survived the accident, but also to have recovered almost completely.
