Update after the crash

I slept sorta. I kept waking up and jumping and just being very scared. I kept replaying things in my head. The bag of the two cars colliding kept replaying in my head. It was terrible. I’d say I only slept around 3 hours in total. I’m still at mom and dads. Mom and me have been on the phone all morning. All of our relatives are calling, offering help. My sister rang the insurance people. They are giving her a car for a few days as she has no means of getting the kids to school. She left the kids stay home from school for a few days though. Lauren is feeling nauseous and has a sore neck. My sis rang a solicitor. We’re going to visit her tomorrow morning, all of us. She said we should get compensation for what happened to us. So we’re going to talk to her about things and about what happened. The solicitor said we need to go back to our g.p again. So we made an apt to go on Wednesday. My head still is really hurting today. And my neck. Mom has a sore back and all the area by her lower back is completely black. She also has bruising on her legs. We’ve all been taking antiinflamitories to help us and to help the swelling go down. My sister went on the radio this morning. Good thing she did too as a load of witnesses rang in after hearing her story. And you’ll never guess what happened. The guy who crashed into us he’s still driving around the roads. A few people saw him driving around. So he’s definitely not in his right mind. One guy got him on his dash cam. So my sister rang back the police and told them. And they said they’d look into it and check everything out. Imagine it though, he’s dangerous. Driving around and dangerous. Imagine if he crashes in to someone else? Hurts them? It doesn’t bear thinking about. I think we have a long road ahead of us. To get both compensation for what happened and also for my sister to get payed out by her insurance for a new car and the damage to her old one. We’re ready to fight though. Ready to take on whatever we have to in order to get justice.

  1. I read about the crash. So glad you all survived. A similar hing happened to my daughter and three of her kids. They were stopped at a red light and a truck smashed into them, totaled our car. They were lucky it was a full stoplight with witnesses including a police officer who saw

  2. The whole thing. It doesn’t help much when you are stranded with a car that you can’t use and hurting kids. The kids are still traumatized if they hear a screech of brakes or see someone coming up fast behind them. Sorry.

    1. I know. Pray reaction to the crash. I have that now too. I was nervous getting in my sisters partners car to go back to my moms house last night. I did but I was so scared getting in. X


  3. I am so glad someone got him on their dash cam driving around. I really hope they catch this monster. You all really do deserve compensation for what he did to you all. I can relate with the flashbacks to my car accidents. More so the last one I was in. I accidentally slammed into the back of a semi-truck and total the vehicle (it was my company’s car too 😦 ) I would be lying if I said I didn’t have the flashbacks anymore, but I do. It was a traumatic experience for me, just like yours was for you. I hope you start to feel better soon. As I said, I can completely relate to what you are going through. If you ever need to talk to someone who understands, you have my email address! Don’t be a stranger!

  4. I so hope they’ll catch that guy, it’s scary indeed that he still drives free. And hope you will all recover soon, though I suppose it may take some time, especially emotionally as such an experience never leaves you fully free from some scary memories.

  5. You really do need to see your doctor and have her run more test on your backs and necks. Anywhere that is hurting. X rays will not show everything and things could be worse. If sje is feeling sick she could have a condition. They can be worse than most think or know.

    I have had condition with lasting effects still 3 years later and my neck and back was messed up in a different accident. Everyone did x rays said it would get better. I settled everything and it never got better. I did not settle for near enough for the lasting damage.
