My Life Did Not Flash before My Eyes

Posted December 4th, 2010 at 05:02 AM by CheddarLimbo
I am not an overly dramatic person by nature, but I think I came very close to dying tonight.

I was driving home from a night of gaming around 1:40 or so. I was more or less on auto-pilot thinking about this game design I have kicking around in my head.

I was in the far-left lane of I-30, a 3 lane highway coming out of Dallas. It was more or less empty compared to the normal traffic of the day. So I'm plugging along and suddenly, the car in front of me quickly jerked to the right - revealing an oncoming set of headlights.

I do not remember making conscious, or active decisions for the next ten seconds. I flew to the right to get out of the car's way, and lost control of the car. I began to skid sideways, and ended up rotating about 180 - to find myself facing an on-coming semi truck.

That truck also swerved to his right, and I had just enough time to whip my car back around in the correct direction and get to the side of the road....
