Shock to the system.

so yesterday I experienced my first car crash, bit of a weird blog post, sorry guys. 

We were all okay, all four of us, but it made me realise how short life is, and how scary things can get. 
We was at a T junction in a small village, and a car crashed into the side of our car, I was in the back, behind the driver. I don't remember much about the crash, apart from seeing a big red car, and then we crashed. I ended up going in a ambulance to the hospital, along with another passenger in the car I was in, just to be on the safe side, but luckily I only had a head injury and whiplash. 
One thing I've learnt is that seatbelts are there for a reason. We were all lucky to be sensible enough to wear them, if not, I don't really know what the outcome would have been, me personally, I banged my head on the seat in front, but if I wasn't wearing a seatbelt I could have easily have seriously injured myself, or the driver. 
Things like this make you realise how lucky you are, and that simple things like seatbelts save life's. 

This was our car.
