It was a very cold morning as it had been raining very heavily the previous night. As my mother was feeling a little under the weather, my sister volunteered to drive me to school. I had overslept and as a result, was running a bit late for school. We got into the car hurriedly. The road was already congested with traffic. It appeared that everyone was late as well.
My sister was a careful driver and despite the fact I was already late, she refused to drive fast on the slippery road. I was lucky she was such a resolute and careful person because a few hundred meters away from the school, we witnessed a tragic accident. it all happened very quickly, as most accidents do. A car full of school children had made a left turning without signaling and as a result a school bus crashed into it. A few cars behind the school bus rammed into the bus as they could not brake in time and soon it became a pile up. The already congested road became jammed with vehicles that came to a crawl. I told my sister that I wanted to help the victims and she nodded silently. She brought the car to a halt not too far from the accident spot.
The scene that greeted us was something I would never forget. It left an indelible imprint in my mind to date. The impact of the accident had plunged three school children out of the car. The driver, a lady, lay lifeless on the steering wheel. I rushed to the children who were preschoolers. Two of them were seriously hurt and bleeding profusely from the head and hands. they were conscious although too weak to realize what had happened. One of them had her left hand severed and appeared unconscious. I think she was killed on the spot. In the meantime passers-by had called the ambulance and while waiting we tried as best as possible to help the victims.
The passengers in the school bus too were injured. I dashed into the bus and saw the driver laid slumped on the wheels. He had severe injuries on the head. While my sister helped him down from the bus, I told the injured school children to stay calm. Most of them appeared to suffer from minor cuts and bruises on their arms and bodies. it was really fortunate that nobody was badly hurt. By then a few adults had entered the bus and together we instructed the children to come out of the bus slowly. The children were crying and screaming for their parents and we had to hug them to keep them quiet.
Meanwhile, two ambulances had arrived. A traffic police car was there too. Two policemen were taking down statements from eye-witnesses. The injured and the dead were whisked away to the hospital. My sister and I later gave an account to the police of what had happened.
I was late for school. In fact, many drives were also late for their work. I informed my teacher of the accident and both felt that it could have been prevented if the drivers had been more careful. Innocent lives would not have been lost otherwise.
It was Sunday morning, I woke up late in the morning, due to last night I sleep late because of watching my favorites movies with the title ‘Alvin and The Chipmunk’. It was really funny and interesting movies to see. After I woke up, I go to take a bath and go to downstairs to eat breakfast that my mom has prepared. I decided to go to town since my mom has asked me to help her buy some groceries things at the town, besides I also want to buy some stuff for me too.
The time was about 11.30 sunny in the morning, the road was not so busy like usual days maybe it was weekend. I drive heading to the Giant Hypermarket to buy the groceries things at there. Suddenly, there was a van from my left side overtook me. That van must have been drive about 140 km/h. After the driver overtook me, then he goes to overtake the car at the other side. How stupid the van driver was to going so fast, a van was not safe at such speeds. The other cars honk the van driver for his rude attitude at the road, this could be a risky to others drivers at the road. Well, I didn’t ignore much about the van, so I just continue focus on my driving.
A few minutes later, something quite unexpected happened. The van just now was about a hundred meters in front of me when it suddenly started spinning round and round. It was like a scene from an action movie. I could see the van already hit a blue Proton Saga car that was not quite far from me. There are broken pieces of glass flying out of the car. The driver who drives the Proton Saga car is seriously injured, his head has hit down the car steering and is bleeding heavily. His car also had been damaged badly for being hit from the van. While the van driver was in unconscious condition, smoke coming out from the car.
There were four or five cars in front of me and they all slowed down their car to stop to see what is happening and render some help to the both drivers who has injured. I stopped my car as well. The van driver as well the Proton...
