If no then Thank God. If yes then if it's no trouble, would you care to discuss it or elaborate it here a little. I was Once Hit by a car in the back and since that day i have had trouble in walking, sitting and sleeping. I went to my doctor and he told me after XRay that my spine has shifted a little; This was 6 months ago, now I am fine and watch where I am going on the streets (it was the fault of the driver he ran into me) but still I ain't gonna take any chances^_^

i had been in less than 10 accidents till date. most of the time, others bang into me and only on 2-3 occasions was i at fault due to rush for time. But i am glad to say that i was never involved in serious accident or hurt anyone before in an accident. My worst accident came not in singapore but in tasmania australia. i was on honeymoon with my wife and we took a 10days car rental to move around. I remembered we were trying to reach another town before night fall so we were in a rush. It was a mistake to allow my wife to read the map. haha, woman never make good map reader. If we travel by highway, it will take us about 200-300 km to reach the town but my wife pointed out that there is a short cut on the map and told me to use that. so i drove and into some wilderness where the place is not developed yet and was like a restricted area. Best of all, there was no reception and frequency for mobile. I should had made a turn bad when i see the sign that stated 'no network for next 60km' but i did not. So i drove a normal 2litre saloon car on a sandy surface like a desert. At first i started slow but gained in confidence. so i began to negotiate turns faster and faster. Then before i knew it the car skidded and almost went off the cliff and the car was hanging in mid-air. my wife and i froze but i quickly get her to climb out of the car thru the passnger door as my door is facing downwards. We managed to climb out of the car and not knowing what to do. Fortunately about an hour or 2 later, 2 cars came. Both are 4WD toyota land cruisers and they stayed with us trying to get our car up. Our saviour came in the form of a park ranger and the 1st time he did was to take a photo of us and was laughing at out plight. We did not take offence but found it amusing too and lucky to be alive. So the 2 cars and a landrover combined to pull the car up and was successful. Our car only have slight damages and was able to continue to drive in it. That was my worst accident till date and thank god i am still alive.
