Car go crunch and snicker-snack. The hood was crumpled, like it is designed to do. Emergency personnel were on the scene within minutes. I was taken to the Duke Hospital ER and had X-rays and a CT scan to check for fractures in my neck. Luckily, everything was clear. I had a neck sprain and some bumps and bruises. Two of my friends sat with me at the hospital and then brought me home.
Neck braces are uncomfortable things. The orthopedic doctor cleared me yesterday to not wear the brace any more. (Yay!) So I’m all good. It will take 3-4 weeks for everything to finish healing and calm down but for the most part I’m okay.
I have a rental car and the guy’s insurance company is covering my medical bills, car rental, and offering a reasonable sum for my car.
I was very lucky to be able to walk away from this accident.
