    Ok so I'll make this short.

    Small get together at a friend's sisters place. On our way back around three am on the main thoroughfare, our car(Suzuki Cultus 2005) t-bones into another car. the other car( Honda Civic 2008 failed to slow down after we flashed our lights and horned before braking by the zebra crossing, the absence of antilock break in his car causes it to skid further and impact occurred.


    Driver (my friend) impacted his shins and knees to the steering coloum.

    Passenger Seat (his wife) whiplash effect and bruised temple (no passenger airbags)

    Me (behind the driver seat) impact nearly knocked the wind out of me sustained and chipped tooth.My side still feels a little sore and my left arm.

    Gal (behind the passenger seat) impacts her head on the front head rest but her body isn't knocked too forward as my arm reflex prevented her from going any further. She has sustained a concussion


    Aftermath:

    No fatal injuries. Gal fainted over the shock over the impact. Friends wife is alright though we did take her to hospital for scans. We will keep an eye on her for few days just in case.

    Car may be a write off due to the collision but I didn't tell my friend as he naturally more concerned with his wife.

    Oh and alcohol was not involved.

    Anyhow I thought I should share this because I have an affinity for you guys

    Take care.

    I'm glad everyone is ok!

    Might wanna be careful with details online though, in case there's a lawsuit.

    Well I'm up and about. No lawsuit as the other guy didn't want to get into a mess. I'll be going to the doc anyhow for a check up because I have dull ache on my lower side.

    Thanks. My friend is the back seat is suffering from memory loss but I believe she will eventually recover some of them....

    I'll post up the damage to the car soon

    Just be sure to keep an eye on yourself too and tell the others the same since some injuries take days, weeks, months to appear
