Fucking hell, Oppo, be careful out there.

I just witnessed the worst (unbelievably) non-fatal accident in my life.

Basically what happened was someone got off of a bus, and started crossing against the light. On a six lane highway. During rush hour.

A woman in a Kia doing 50-60 MPH (it’s 50 here, but everyone does 55-60) swerved left to avoid hitting her, lost control, crossed into the oncoming lane, got t-boned on the passenger side by a Nissan a few cars ahead of me, FLIPPED OVER THE NISSAN, landed on its nose, went sideways and hit a sign on the driver’s side (narrowly missing a pole), and then spun backwards and jumped the curve.

I’ve never seen anything like that in my life.

The front of the Nissan was all fucked, but the Kia, holy shit. Driver’s side smashed, front smashed, ALL of the windows blown out, the passenger side looked like a bomb went off, and metal bars were sticking out through the roof. And the kicker is that the Kia driver WAS NOT WEARING A SEATBELT.

I’m amazed at how well that Kia held up against any intrusion into the cabin. From the looks of it, even if the impact was on the driver’s side, they would have survived. EXCEPT NOT BECAUSE SHE WASN’T WEARING A SEATBELT AND HE FUCKING HEAD WOULD BE IN THE GRILL OF THE NISSAN.

I think the cars were a Sentra and an Altima.

I have quite a lot of faith in humanity though after that, though. A good fifteen people, myself included, got out to check on the women. Once a few stopped and got out, it snowballed into a bunch of people doing it. A few people offered to be witnesses in court for the woman if she needed to prove it was a no-fault.

Also, do add to the surreality, while I was trying to figure out how to get my car into park so I could turn it off, this came on Spotify

Just as one of the women in the Nissan was shrieking and the woman in the Kia opened her door and spilled out onto the road on all fours.

Also, I nearly won a Darwin Award, because I was standing there on the phone to 911 next to the Kia and its pool of fluids before I realized I had a lit cigarette hanging out of my mouth.
