The day before yesterday,when I was on the bus to the downtown,and it was nearly rush hour.I sat against window at the back seats.Suddenly,people in the car shouted that there was an accident.At first,I was trying to figure out how badly the accdent was.What a scene! I found a woman lying under one big tyre of a large truck with her back upside.According to her clothes,she was still young.What made me sick was the bowels near the truck and large-scale of bloodstain.God bless her!I was speech and felt so bad.Life is so fragile.Could she ever think about such suffering?Die from an accdent?NO!There was so much traffic and any carelessness could end your life.I looked at different kinds of cars,they are killers!I've never seen that before.I would never ever again want to see that happen with my own eyes. I hope every friend here enjoy a long and happy life and die at an old age.

Yes, i agree. Life is very fragile indeed. Sometime this year, i witnessed a car crash. The police had already arrived, along with the ambulance. I couldn't recognize the black car because by then it was nothing more than bits of metal. What a struck me was a girl near the scene. Her body was shivering even though it was a sunny day and she was sobbing uncontrollably. When the paramedics managed to get the victim of the car crash out of the black car and onto the stretcher, i caught a glimpse of the victim. Their body was difigured and blood covered their entire face. The paramedics covered the body up and people began reassuring the sobbing girl. Seeing this, i learnt a lesson- you must take care of your fragile life. if not for yourself, then for those around you because once you have passed away, the people who cares about you will still be greatly affected.

Hi, snow. Yes, everyone should be careful because we can never know when accidents happen. It is always good to know all safety precautions. On road trips, before one embarks on it and if he is driving, he should make sure that he is in a very good physical condition (some drivers suffer from sleep deprivation and fell asleep while driving). Not only that, he should ascertain that the car is in tip-top condition. Life is precious. We should all take care of ourselves to live long lives.

Oh, it really bothers me a lot every time I remember my past experiences with road accidents. How I wish I wasn't there to witness such incident and erase all those awful memories. Makes me want to have a power to turn back time and prevent the accident.

hi friend, long time no see, back to your discussion, i have never witness a road accident, i am so easy to be affected by what happened around me, if i have ever witness a road accident, i would be shocked by what i have seen, if the accident is very serious, i would be the one who sent to hospital. i am young, in my 24, i wish i would never witness a road accident in my life.

I've never seen anything that gruesome, but I've had run-ins like that. Wandering the streets bored, I heard a screech and see a old lady (so typical) under a SUV.

yeah i seen a lot of them when i was driving trucks. but i think the most wildest one i saw was when my friend and i was sitting at a red light and the light turned green for some reason i didnt go and all sudden we hears this crashing sound, this bmw hitted these two cars in the rear end at 115 mph, flipped over up side down, then hit this other car well upside down on top of his roof in back, which pushed that car into the path of a car that pass us up and hit him. it was like something in the movies, and it seem to happen in slow motion as well. the people in the bmw were killed.

Hi there, sad to hear what you saw. I personally have saw a few accidents but none are fatal ones (luckily). I still remembered a very freaky incident which left 0 casualties and injuries. I was on board a bus for work and it was the usual early morning rush hours thus traffic jams everywhere. So my bus was caught in one of those "jams" and I looked out of the window and saw these two motorists (both with a passenger) and they were like kicking and fighting each other (while still on their motorcycle). And the next moment I knew, one of the motorists felt off his motor cycle (but luckily, his female passenger hold on to him and he manage to gain his balance while the other motorist just drove off.) In my mind, I was quite shocked to see that happen but as I mentioned, there weren't any injuries or casualties.

hi sweetyethot well i have seen something very similar but gosh not for real! we were in school and there was an awareness program in the school and the traffic department officials laid down some really nasty and scary and some ridiculously nasty photo shots of some horrific accidents!... i don't want to describe them they were a little more severed in comparison to what you have seen, the hell! they shouldn't scare us this much... i would normally pull my face away from the scene, i have been to accident spots and although i grow curious i just try to force myself from seeing something that could make me sick.! and to my luck i have not been able to witness something this severe, well but my friend has seen one accident where a metal rod struck an old and and came out through the other side and he wasn't able to eat well that day, eh i don't like to get into specific details but i am sorry you had seen something so ugly, i hope the best for all of us too friend and hope to live longer and happier life..

i did witness many a road accidents.met with two such myself.but the one which keeps flashing in my memory was very upsetting for me.i was sitting in the window seat in the town bus which was waiting for passengers to board at the bus stop.i saw a young biker in his twenties speed away overtaking the buses from behind suddenly there was a screeching sound and what i saw was just a nightmare coming true .he got sandwiched between a bus and the road partition and got crushed by another bus. his scalp got opened with the contents in the road.worst his eyes were intact . i couldn't forget those eyes till now.oh he was just a block away from the one of the best hospital's trauma centre, but couldn't be saved.what a waste of human life.

accidents - people should be careful to avoid road accidents to happen
Hi, sweetyethot. I had witnessed a number of road accidents. One was involving a motorcycle that was running at a very fast speed as he crossed an intersection. The driver missed the calculations and hit the back side of the crossing taxicab. We were behind that taxicab and I could very well see what happened ... it made me shout in shock. People helped the driver and they realized it was a lady driver. I saw she was in great pain. Another one I could not forget was what happened to my oldest son. He bumped the back of the passenger jeepney and he damaged the front side of the car. He cut his upper lip int he process as he bumped steering wheel.

I once saw an accident but it was not gory like that. A car bumped a biker even though the biker is in biker's lane. When the driver came out, it was a she. She was so reckless for being a girl. The biker cannot move maybe a broken bone or two but that is all. No blood scattering. I will not look at it if it was like your experience :D
