Today I just got into my second ever car accident! The first was in my dually crew cab Ford truck hauling two horses in the middle of the City which was stressful but this was worse!! In Panama there is craziness everywhere in the city and the roads are not sufficient for the amount of cars that are on the road. My mom and I had just ventured over to the fish market and bought some delicious ceviche and pineapple juice and were on our merry way to have the "Better Soup In The World" as we were informed by a Panamanian when our little happy world was uprooted!!
JUST LOOK HOW HAPPY I AM EATING FRESH CEVICHE
There is a large interchange where three different three lane roads converge into one 3 lane road. I am edging my way into traffic and there is a Semi Truck that has stopped so I pulled in front of him into the lane. Traffic started to move but then stopped again, apparently the truck did not see me, I will admit I was in a tiny Yaris so I can understand the visual impairment the driver had. He proceeded to hit the back of us and push us into a truck in front of us and then pushed both of us a few feet until he figured out there was us between him and the truck I was know attached to it's bumper!
SEMI IN MY FENDER
THIS IS HOW BIG THE SEMI WAS, VIEW FROM BEHIND
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A SEMI PUSHES YOU
The best parts of the accident was we were in bumper to bumper traffic and now we were causing a huge back up and people were laying on their horns left and right, then it was incredibly hot at the moment, then it took about 2 hours for the police to process the accident, then the torrential downpour as I am driving my newly smooshed car back to the rental office. Needless to say our day a just a bit ruined!!
