Last night on the way home from work, I got T-boned on the driver's side door , by some ******* who had to have been doing 40 in a 25mph zone.I honestly did not know what hit me and for 5-10 seconds I could not hear anything. Then I came to my sense and looked out of my drivers window to see an engine compartment pressed against my door, with smoke starting to pour from it.Well needless to say, my left shoulder and ribcage hurt and I could not breath from having the wind knocked out of me, but I managed to pull myself from the passenger side of the car because I thought the other car was on fire. I got out and basically collapsed on a nearby bench as I could not breath yet and my entire left side was killing me. All the cops that showed up were my co workers so needless to say they did the right thing.It seemed like forever for the ambulance to show up.My shoulder was on burning and my ribcage was killing me bad! The ambulance personell I also knew and they were real cool with me, they boarded and collared me, which is really uncomfortable. I was in this setup for about 1 1/2 hours in the emergency room and it got really painful. After the doctor got me undressed he saw 2 nice gouges of sking from my left shoulder and a nice bruise from the frame of the door pillar hitting my side. After X rays, the doctor told me I have 2 fractured ribs, and there is nothing they do for them but give pain killers...Any way here are some pictures of my back, looks like I will be out of work for 6-8 weeks...
