Have you ever been in a car accident? How many?
Were you or anyone else injured?
Do you remember how it felt/what went through your mind?
What happened to your car?
Did it make you apprehensive about driving afterward?

Sorry if this is triggering for anyone, I hope it's not. I have a morbid fear of car accidents and I just got in one two days ago. Nobody was injured and it was low-speed/low-impact, but my car is a goner now as it's not worth it to repair all of the things that are wrong. I was actually surprised by how calm I felt while it was happening--I always thought I'd freak out and lose my mind but in reality it was more that I made the decision to go, I saw the other car in front of me, I saw it get really close, and then we hit and I just thought, "oh, we're actually colliding, this is happening" and I heard the sound of metal smashing and I was just in shock. I'm almost sure it would have been different if the accident had been worse or at a high speed. I'm mostly just grateful neither of us were hurt. Weirdly enough I'm more freaked out about it now as I think about what could have happened than I was at the scene when it was actually happening.
