To some extent, this would sound rather Ironic or very Strange,
Still thinking about what transpired.
Late afternoon on a Saturday I received a Call from my Oldest Sister,
Her daughter had suffered a little Accident,
Unable to Miss the Man-hole which someone had Opened,
Ruining her one Tire on her car – She found herself stuck…
I jumped into action and helped out,
Disbelieving how Idiotic people could be,
Removing this while the Hole is in the Middle of the Road!
We were done and they were on their way again.
What I didn’t know was,
The very next day I’d be in that same specific area with an Accident of my own!
At this Specific Intersection,
No less than 50 meters or so from the Spot we Finished with the Flat Tire the Previous day;
I was involved in an Accident!
Now as I spoke to a few People,
Since this Accident
AND they told me it doesn’t Matter if there was a Third Party involved,
Which was the Case here.
The Insurance only require to know what happened with the Two vehicles
Or Heaven forbid,
You hit a Pedestrian!
When I tried getting myself out of the Escalating situation,
I maneuvered my Car
At this moment the Motorcyclist was Right next to me.
We impacted each other,
Having Concentrated on the Car which was blocking my way,
I didn’t see or notice the Motorcycle next to me.
He impacted my car right behind the Rear door,
Talking to the man after he was Discharged from Hospital,
He told me that he was knocked off his Motorcycle and
Spun around in the Air.
Hitting the tarmac,
And breaking his Arm –
Needing an Operation, repairing the Bones which was broken.
I saw the X-rays,
Knowing on the Accident Scene and the Impact on the Car,
Suspecting that his Arm was broken.
Speaking to the Man,
I apologized for my Part in the Accident,
Being Extremely Shocked at what happened;
Feeling a bit better, when He confirmed that Neither of us had a Chance,
Or any place to go because of the Third Party in the Situation.
Now here’s the kicker,
The moment I realized the Motorcyclist and I connected,
I stopped, turned around, calling for help…
BUT – the Idiots which were Instrumental in Facilitating the Accident,
They sped off, getting out of there as fast as they could!
Now then, the Insurance is in the Process of dealing with Claim from the Motorcyclist,
At least he’ll Recover,
Luckily for Both of us – his Backpack and tick work Jacket protected him.
If not – He could have been much Worse off!
So here is the Moral of this Accident;
No matter how Long you’ve been Driving,
An Accident can Happen when you Least Expect it,
Driving Angry on the Road could easily Create a Very Dangerous Situation,
So be Mind-full of Your Surroundings,
If it so Happens that there’s an Issue, Accident or such;
Rather Stop and help,
Even if you weren’t at Fault or maybe Upset,
Helping out on the Spot will go so much further to
Defuse the Situation than Fighting over what Happened afterward…
Anything can happen at Any moment,
BUT – reacting in the Correct way,
Helping out would be Your choice.
Be Safe on the Roads!
