I was involved in a major car accident last Saturday. It was really nasty
outside and I was doing my last minute Christmas shopping. I bought a
treadmill and throw into the back of my Pontiac Vibe. As I'm merging
onto the highway, I get side railed by a small car and it spins me 360. I
think that the most instinctive thing to do would be to grab your wheel
and sit back. Instead, I all of a sudden felt like I needed to block a high
kick on my left side. The very second I put my left guard up, my elbow
and shoulder run into the window, which should've been my face. I was
knocked out for a second, but when I wake up, I notice that the
treadmill is gone. I crawl out of the car and notice that the treadmill
took out a huge highway sign and the sign had fallen on top of it.
This was the craziest shit that's ever happened to me or anyone I know.
The good news is that the treadmill works, the company is shipping me
new replacement parts for free, the car will be fixed and nobody got
hurt expect for me getting dizzied up and a few bruises on my left
I swear that MMA and hardcore sparring has given me such an instinct
to be aware and alert at all times in every situation. I just wonder if I'd
be in a hospital bed right now if I never covered up and clinched the
wheel instead at that split second.
I wish you all a safe and merry christmas. Please be careful on the
