I was in a car accident. I do not remember what I heard at the exact moment of the crash. Before the accident we had just put in a CD and were all listening to the first song. Moments after, I hear my mom and brother screaming in the background of my own thoughts. The smell was not pleasant. It is not a smell that I can explain. All I can see is smoke and I feel pain in my hip and my chest, it's difficult to breathe. I was in the back seat, my brother was driving, and my mom was in the passenger seat. Once I get a grasp on what happened, I attempt to get out of the car but the door is jammed in and I have to crawl to the other side of the car to escape, as well as my mom.
It was 11pm and we were just leaving a friend's birthday party. It was a pretty great day, ice skating and lots of food. We are all taken to the ER by the ambulance and we were taken care of. My mom and brother had a cat scan to make sure they had no internal injuries.
I wake up in the morning feeling sore and it is difficult to get myself up. As if I had just done a workout on my lower stomach. This pain stuck with me for over a week. Though the physical scar has gone away, my family and I are still left with the mental scar.
