On a sunny Sunday afternoon the next year, I had the third accident at the same location as before. My car was once again hit from behind, only this time without a braking sound. The driver was an old woman. She said she was lost in thought and saw my car too late. The damaged part was the rear bumper, the same as before. Unlike the last accident, not only the bumper but the body were damaged. My car was towed to a garage.
I became very panicked. Don’t you think it is weird that this kind of accident happened repeatedly? “Is my car cursed? Since my car’s color is a less noticeable, is it hard for the seniors to recognize it? But the same colored cars are running without an accident. Why do I get in accidents so often?”
I thought I might be killed by my car. So I decided to sell it and buy a new car. I searched for a dealer that buys such damaged cars and found one. I made a deal with him via mail and the phone. It was a good deal. The trade was very easy. The car seemed to be exported abroad after being repaired. Anyway, I never thought it would come to this. I drove that car for only 3 years. Thinking positively, it was lucky I wasn’t badly injured. However, I had to go to a clinic to heal my back for a while. I was really exhausted by various anxieties, and contacts with the insurance company and the car dealers.
Then in January this year, it happened again!!! On a weekday morning, my car was pushed from behind when the traffic was slow. The driver was an old man. He said he took his eyes off the road for a moment. I wasn’t injured thanks to traffic congestion. I just had to have the bumper replaced. That was all. It was superfluous work for me. My car became the one with the history again.
What’s going on my car! Drive safely, everyone.
