Cars, Greater Toronto Area, Accident



Well law of averages caught up to me this morning. I was involved in a car accident on the 410 on my way into work. Iโ€™m ok, as were the other peopleโ€ฆ the carsโ€ฆ not so much. I was driving along as usual into work, I was in the left lane, there was a larger car in front of me. That car suddenly swerved out into the right lane revealing a stopped carโ€ฆ I had very little time to reactโ€ฆ basically just skidded into him. My options were ditch, traffic or parked car. Nice options. Fortunately no one was hurt. The front of my car is totalledโ€ฆ I find it remarkable that my air bag didnโ€™t deployโ€ฆ How fracking hard does it need to hit?? Anyway the insurance company (so far) has been decent. I canโ€™t wait to see how much this increases my rates. This is my first accident in 15 years, I wasnโ€™t charged with anything and the accident report says I was โ€˜driving normallyโ€™, so weโ€™ll see. Still a shitty way to start your morning. Sigh.

In retrospect, I think this is the origin of my knee issues. It is nothing serious, just a nagging off feeling sometimes on the knee joint.
