I was out late on Monday night because I had gone to Dubai with a friend and was driving home from their place when the accident happened. I was going through a roundabout ( Al Ain where I live has about 525, 252 of them) and a lady entered the roundabout too early and hit me. I swerved, jumped the sidewalk and hit a small tree. I was so shocked when I stepped out of the car I was shaking and almost burst out in tears. I could barely speak. Everything happens so quickly. Thank God it was 2 o'clock in the morning. What if someone had been walking on the sidewalk? What if there was another car in the roundabout?
My car had two flat tires and was undrivable. We called the police (999 by the way not 911) they came, took pictures and wrote a report. I rent my car, soni had to call the car rental place do they could come and take the car away. I was so thankful that my friends came and stayed with me until this whole ordeal was over. Since the accident was not my fault I will not have to pay anything.
By the time I got home it was 4 am and I had to get up for work in an hour. I decided to call in sick. When I got up a few hours later I had some neck and back pain so I went to the hospital and got some x rays done. The doctor said they were fine and gave me some anti-inflammatory medication to take. I went home and rested my back. The next morning I was still in some pain so I stayed home again. I finally started to feel better later that evening. The more I think about the accident the more I am thankful that it wasn't worse.
Have a Happy Easter!
