Experiences in life are situations that you go through mostly involving a challenge. I have had many different experiences in my life, some have been complicated but the one I learned from was scary. Involving my first car accident it was caused by a lack of attention.
The day of the accident is a day that I will never forget. It was a hot summer day in July 2009. I was driving my 1996 Ford Mustang on my way to St. Louis Mills mall. On my way there I collided with another car. The accident occurred only for a few seconds after hitting the side of the contour and skidding down the street. Holding on to the steering wheel was the only thing I could do from losing control of the vehicle. After the accident all I could do is be thankful that anyone wasn’t injured. The accident resulted from me passing a car that was going lower than the speed limit. When I was trying to pass the car, the driver of the car turned into my passenger side without using a signal light. The impact made both of our cars lose control on the road, being that I was using speed to pass the car made it even worst. There wasn’t anyone injured in the accident just damage was done to both vehicles. Consequences are what I suffered after the accident. After the small collision the police was called to file a report. When the police came he followed the examined everything. Due to the skid marks in the road you could tell that I was speeding when I was trying to pass. Since I was speeding I got a ticket and I suffered the consequence of damage to the passenger side of my car and my insurance going up. My frightening experience with the car accident was terrible. I guess going through different situations in life made me learn from my mistake. The accident made me realized that I need to be more careful while driving.
