the sound of a car accident is deafening. time almost seems to stop, as shards of glass and metal fly through the air, in what feels like slow motion. as the airbag goes off, you wonder if these will be your last moments. and when the crash is over, the ringing stays in your ears as if the sound is etched into your brain. the smell of burnt rubber and engine smoke will soon fill the air, a scent you won't be able to forget. you take a deep breath and close your eyes- darkness.
