I was driving along a country road, it'd been raining, this car came towards me, it left the road, ran up the grass bank slid on it's side, coming to rest only five yards away, I went over, there was a fuel leak, the windscreen was gone, I managed to reach in & turn the ignition off, the woman driver managed to climb out with my help, she was late for a meeting, hence the speed, there was a slight rise in the road, so I saw the car take off, twist in the air, & land on it's side, & slide a dozen yards, scaaarie!!! __________________ __________________

I was in GA walking home from going to the post office had to mail some stuff for ebay. And as I was walking home 2 cars had a dead on collison from like 7 feet away, I had hit with some debry I also got all dirty because the shock of the sound made me jump into the lil stream that was carrying rain water away. Lucky it was summer, the roads were actually fairly dry. The accident was only caused by one drivers lack of attention span no one was hurt. But it was a pretty scary thing to be standing 7 feet away from where two cars slammed into each other at 50 MPH. I didn't have to call 911 someone else was on that before me. __________________ Main Rig: I7 920 CPU, 6 Gigs ram 5870 GPU M17X Laptop 2.8 Ghz Dual Core, 4870 Radeon

I saw one not too long ago from quite far back, there was a lane closed ( a signed said but no cones or anything) but someone obviously didn't see the sign, there was someone pulling out of a side road and someone in my lane let them out, they assumed no one was in 'closed' lane and just pulled out and the car in the other lane just hit them straight on. They were doing alot of speed too because they just saw a clear lane with no one on it! Thats the closest I've been for a while and luckily I've never been in that much of a major crash myself. __________________
