My friend Clayton and I were driving back to my house from his, which is just half a mile down the road from my house. I had made this drive hundreds of times, and I have never had any problems. I was ready to get home and i noticed there were no other cars so I decided to speed up a little. I was driving at about 75 mph and we were listening to music and I just glanced over to my left for a second when I heard Clayton yell at me, “We’re going off the road!” I looked over and saw that we were going off the road a little and in a panic i steered to the left, causing us to swerve. I heard a bang and I felt the car begin to slide. I closed my eyes and I kept feeling the back end of the car bounce off the ground. Things were flying all over the inside of the car and I just kept thinking, “I’m going to die!” The car finally stopped and we got out yelling as loud as we could for help. I called my mom and she asked what had happened but we had no idea of the damage we caused. It turns out we had flown off of the road, hit a trashcan, two culverts and a tree. The crash lasted only a few seconds though it felt like it lasted an eternity. The car is now totaled and the cop said that we are lucky to walk away from the crash with very minor injuries. The crash showed me that i am not invincible on the road like i thought i was. I never thought it would happen to me, until that night.
