This is a friends only post for a reason so please don't go sharing this about. This is because it is of a sensitive nature.
This morning I grabbed a lift in from the train station to work as I always do, this morning happened to be quite cold.
Bundled in to the car as usual and went on our marry way, I look down to check my phone and hear a bit of a "oh shit there is a problem" sound coming off my friend who is driving.
That problem was I'm the shape of a Subaru. Then one wildly deployed airbag. And finished off with an airborne Blackberry.
For a head on collision we did pretty well to walk away without too much wrong with us. I also had my bag on my lap which for once only contained crumpets and flora instead of the usual load I carry. I suspect the bag took the brunt of the airbag as the contents were smashed pretty well so I only have a small burn on my hand.
My friend had a leg injury from the pedals and a decently bad burn from the airbag on her hand.
I don't remember much of the airbag deployment but I do remember wondering where my phone was and I thought nothing of it when I found it on top of the airbag. And being a bit perplexed why I couldn't open the door and a man shouting at me not to move.
We had the full works, police and ambulance arrived had a paramedic ram him cold hand up my back asking if I felt pain (I didn't but I definitely felt his cold as death hand).
As I used to work in insurance I knew what the process was in regards to the kind of injury I would have had, mainly seat belt and possibly whiplash.
I can tell you now a seat belt injury hurts like fuck. I feel like I got hit by something. Oh, er.
Thankfully in the end nobody was seriously injured or worse and the other party weren't argumentative. Probably because it was due to the road being a complete untreated sheet of ice and not much anybody could have done to stop it.
Now I'm at home looking to remain horizontal for a long long time.
