My favorite mistake is one that I didn’t even consider a mistake at the time, maybe more of a mishap, or just one part of a long series of unfortunate events. But, looking at it in hindsight, I can tell you it was a mistake, definitely a mistake. It occurred on a beautiful, warm Saturday in May; school had just ended and life was looking up as summer was fast approaching with its promise of fun and sunshine. I was spending this gorgeous day with my mom and grandma out shopping for my brother’s graduation party, which was to occur the next day. ; and, wWe had just walked out of the Chesterfield Valley Olive Garden when I had the brilliant idea of convincing my mom to let me drive home.
Everyone 's always fears they will do something bad while taking their drivers test.. I’ve heard of someone hitting a car but that was the least of my worries because I almost hit a person. I was taking the test right when school was getting out and I was told to drive past the school. There was quite a bit of traffic and I knew hitting the breaks would have caused a huge crash. This guy ran in front of my car and I wasn 't far from hitting. Thankfully no one was hurt and I passed my drivers test.
In the Havens family, all four teenagers that drive have been in an accidents within the first six months of driving independently. Three of the teenagers totaled the car and were lucky that they were not killed, but they were injured and required medical care. A teenage neighbor was driving home from work when he lost control of his car. His face was removed in the accident and he has
Our phone had been disconnected for non-payment, so she had taken the car to go to a friend’s house to use their phone. She intended to call her parents and ask if she could move back home. She somehow didn’t see Jeremy playing in the driveway as she started the car and began to drive away. But he was there, innocently playing in front of the car, not realizing the danger. Amid the ensuing panic that followed, we somehow managed to pick up his limp body and go racing to the fire station where I knew there was an ambulance service.
To illustrate, as mentioned earlier, Clarisse was killed by getting run over by a car. That person didn’t even stop to help her and they didn’t get punished for it. Later in the book, Montag almost gets run over and he realized that the driver was speeding and wasn’t going to stop for anyone. He would kill anyone who was in his path. “They would have killed me, thought Montag, swaying, the air still torn and stirring about him in dust, touching his bruised cheek.
They solemnly prayed for the injured truck driver as the paramedics placed him in the Ambulance and then drive away. Sheriff Johnstone drove over, as they were sluggishly moving towards the pickup, and motioned for them to get in the patrol car. Wearily they slide into the back seat, when Estelle Louise shut the door the Sheriff says, “The driver of the truck, Mr. Dents was able to get out of the truck, before the fire started and thanks to heaven he was not seriously injured. We had a chat before the paramedics took him away and he told me he was in a dang hurry to get home and out of the rain. He admits he was speeding and lost control of his truck.
In the media it is not uncommon to hear stories about celebrities and the uber-wealthy being acquitted of crimes that the common person would be convicted of. For instance, last year Caitlyn Jenner rear-ended a woman after speeding on a rain-slicked highway. The woman died in the fatal crash, and charges of vehicular manslaughter were brought up against Caitlyn, yet the Los Angeles District Attorney dismissed the charges. Ethan Couch’s case is similar except it easier to place blame on the teen as his blood alcohol level was measured at three times to legal limit while he was speeding, the crash resulting in the the deaths of four pedestrians and brain damage to his friend. Despite pleading guilty to four counts of manslaughter, the judge accepted
I was at a red light very close to the school when i had a green arrow i proceeded on driving straight until very suddenly a car had pulled out directly into the street inches in front of me, with very little time to even get my foot on the brake, i had smashed directly into the driver side of the other car. My air bag had deployed and my car was destroyed. When i had seen through the mirror that it had been to other girls in my grade, one that i had known since elementary school and another that I had seen many times
Distracted driving is a problem of epidemic proportions. Thousands die every year in accidents attributed to distracted driving. There are many ways to be distracted behind the wheel - answering a phone call, sending a text message, paying too much attention to passengers, or playing with the radio. One distraction many drivers take for granted is the need to use the restroom. Experts say, however, that needing to use the bathroom can be as dangerous of a distraction as any other.
The second car was a little easier bit easier to open than the first, but still a vigorous challenge. The crowd was still at large and waiting to see the outcome of the fatal accident. That oh so familiar sound of the screeching machine breaking through the metal greeted my ears with a not so gentle greeting. The door fell off with a loud thud and there laid an unconscious woman with a slight drop of blood running down her head. The already thick tension that filled the now morning air grew even thicker.
