-As a matter a fact, my friend was involved in a car crash Friday. He is still alive, but he is injured pretty badly.
-Another friend of mine broke his arm a couple of times doing random stupid stuff.
-I was hit by a fence. Fence fell on me and gave me a big knot on my head, and I had received several cuts.

Unfortunately yes. 3 of my good friends back in Canada last summer were killed in a car accident, as the van they were in rolled over into a ditch. My other friend (the driver) is okay. She was very lucky.
 
Other than that on a lighter side, i accidentally fell off the roof a few years ago putting up Christmas lights, and broke my leg.

I was in a car accident, my nerves constantly got worst after that I think and I feel pain all the time now. Yet i'm used to it.  
 
It was my fault anyways, I ran the light and got smashed making a left turn. My brother totalled his Z05 corvette, that car looks like something out of a videogame, now it's gone. He's still alive though.  
  
Also my brother did get in another car accident before when his friends was trying to drive him home while raining and they were drunk. He was the only one hit and he had back problems for years, got a ton of money for compensation though.

I had a cousin killed in a car accident and an uncle thrown out of the vehicle still alive but the cabin of his truck was crushed in so he was lucky he wasn't wearing his seatbelt.

@CornontheCobbe: Brutal mate.
 
In other news...I tore my scalp riding down my driveway too quickly. Not major, but pretty fucking stupid. Here's how it went down:

I had somewhere to be locally, so I picked up the bike and sped off. I started pedalling and putting on my hoodie at the same time, and as I reached !!terminal velocity!! at the bottom, the arm got pulled between the front wheel and the frame, and I went over the top of it, and it, in turn, toppled over me.
 
After checking none of the neighbours saw, I walked back up the drive to change bike, and then my head started bleeding. I Walked into the house, looked into the mirror and there it was: a fairly substantial flap of skin, pissing blood down my face.
 
Fucking bikes.

When I was a little kid in a place called a apple hill, I was playing hide and go seek (with my cousins, I think?) and a stranger comes up, tells me to spin around three times and count to ten, then go find them. So I did, and after I saw them hiding behind a rock down the hill but I was so dizzy I fell down the hill a smacked by head on a boulder. My face was bleeding and I had to go to the hospital to get what I called at the time stooches (stitches, I was three years old) and I have a scar on my forhead like Harry Potter. 
I also got into a car accident 2 or 3 years ago, and my mom wrecked our BMW. Damn...I didnt realize how long its been til just now.

some very, very close family of mine were in a car accident and they were in critical condition. i don't know what happened to them so i suppose they're OK now. i was also almost killed along with my family and some other people in a close call but i wouldn't call that an accident.

I tried to fly a helicopter in a round of Rush but ended up crashing it into a mountain. 
 
Oh wait, in real life? My friend's brother Mike fell asleep in the back of his cousin's car after a party one night a while ago. His cousin, who was drunk, got into the car and started driving without knowing that Mike was in there. He ended up flipping it over. Both escaped relatively unharmed.

My existence was an accident. So, yeah, I guess?

Uncle broke his spine in a superbike race, been in a wheelchair ever since.

I nearly lost my "virginity" in a bicycle accident as a child.  The seat came of whilst I was riding and the steel pipe that the seat goes on headed for my rectum with great force.  Could have neutered me as well.  Lucky for me, it just tore a gash on my inner thigh.  I still have the scar, 45 years later and it is about 20 mm from all the important stuff. 
 
Want to see a picture  :-)

#19 Posted by thehideousshrew (206 posts) -

Once when i was a kid i slipped while running down the driveway and scraped my knee so bad that the kneecap was exposed. That was about twenty years ago but i still have a big circular scar. It fells all squishy when i put my finger on it. I remembver quite clearly that it didn't hurt until i looked at it. Not as severe as some of the ones on here but it seemed pretty fucked up to me at the time.

some football player at my HS who committed to Notre Dame for football died falling off a balcony while drunk this spring break. 
I've been in some fender benders, nothing major.

#21 Posted by jaycee13 (523 posts) -

yes, i was riding a skateboard down a pretty steep hill, must have hit a stone or something and went flying in the air. Landed on my face and my top two teeth bit a hole just below my lip whch i could stick my tongue through.

#22 Posted by CandleJakk (766 posts) -

A few years ago, I went over the bonnet of a car on the way home from school.
 
Cycling along the road, which has a 40mph limit, some younger twat at walking along the pavement/sidewalk sticks his tennis racket out at head height. 
I have very, very little time to react rationally. Duck, I lose control and likely go under a car. Take the hit to the face, and go god-damn anywhere across the road. I chose the option to swerve.
So I swerve out to the right, no time to look back, a Renault Scenic is doing about 45mph. My bike being angled went flying forward, rather than into the other lane, my head went down onto the bonnet, and carried on through the windshield and into the passenger seat.
 
I came out with cuts and bruises, but their eldest son in the passenger seat damn nearly died where I crushed his ribcage.
 
Thankfully, everyone survived. Scary shit though.

Several of my friends have been in accidents. Teen drivers ftw.

#25 Edited by Kombat (2205 posts) -

I was in several car accidents when I was young, and that's likely a major contributing factor to me not having my driver's license.  Driving scares the living shit out of me.  
 
Someone very, very close to me was in a coma for two weeks after a very bad accident back in high school and nearly died.  If I were a religious man, I'd be thanking God every 5 seconds that she's still with me.

My Uncle was hit in the side by an 18-Wheeler (A FUCKING 64 YEAR OLD WOMAN WAS DRIVING IT.  WHAT THE HELL.) and it completely shattered his hip, and he had other broken bones and several deep gashes.  He can walk with a cane now, but he's still not completely better and the doctor isn't sure if he'll ever be.

Yes, and it was kinda awkward when that one kid crapped himself in class that one day. It set the tone for the rest of my college experience.

  • My brother rolled his car about a year ago.  Was really scary getting his phone call and him just barking at me to "get dad."
  • My friend crashed his car into a parked car on the side of the street after staying up all night and then going to work the next morning on no sleep.  He was driving home, and crashed like 500 yards from his house.
  • I have several other friends who have already gone through multiple cars, gotten several tickets, and they are only between the ages of 19-21.
 
Personally, I (knock on wood) have never gotten into any sort of accidents, nor gotten pulled over or anything.  The worst I've done is accidentally clipping the bush when getting out of the driveway.
 
EDIT: oh wow, I didn't know this was about accidents in general.  In that case, I have been in one that is pretty memorable.  When I was like five years old, my brother thought of this genius idea to put a pillow case over my head and then tell me to chase after him.  Of course I tripped and my head fell on the tip of a rocking chair... splitting my head open.  The next thing I knew I was in the ER getting 17 stitches down my head.  Still have that scar today.
 
ANOTHER EDIT:  Also an old teammate of mine died about two years ago.  He was with his friends, and they had just eaten at a local pizza joint, high, and decided to "play a game" of running across a major avenue trying to dodge cars, a'la Frogger.  My friend managed to dodge every car on the avenue... but failed to see a speeding motorcycle splitting lanes.  He died of his injuries later that night.  I try not to let myself get emotionally affected, but I was unable to keep the tears back during his memorial when I saw his family sobbing in the front of the church.

I don't remember how old I was, but my mom was driving me to my grandmas because my mom had some out of state work or something. It was a long, long time ago. Anyway, black ice + night time. We were driving down a hill almost into my Grandma's town when we hit a patch and flipped. Luckily we didn't go over the cliff, we actually went the opposite way (toward the hill) and ended up on our side (I think, could've been upside down). Luckily neither of us were hurt.
 
My mom was hit by a car a while ago. Bent the metal handle of an umbrella she had, but didn't hurt her at all.
 
I wrecked on a bike once, got a nice slash on my leg for it. Later, my bike seat was loose and after speeding down a cul-de-sac, I went to sit down and slide to a stop, the seat moved up, my ass hit the wheel, my leg went next to the chain and ended up sliding on the gravel-y road on that leg. Surprisingly, only minor scratches and no cuts.
 
Oh, and apparently when I was a little kid I was jumping on a couch, missed/fell/something and hit my chin on the corner of a square arm-rest and cut through my lower lip (like, the area between the bottom lip and chin). Then a few years ago I was hit in the same spot with a pipe (it was an accident though, still hurt).
 
One of my friends got in a car crash in Utah a while ago, car was wrecked but he was fine. 
 
That's all I can recall. Well, unless you can call going down a tree-rock-and-snow covered slope in one of those disc sleds, and slamming your back into a tree (knocking your ass out in the process) an accident. Some three or so seconds before I saw a friends sled dig into the snow and catapult him face-first into the ground.
 
Fun though. We'd also slide down this huge iced-over road/path thing, which ran the full length of the Lodge (Warm Springs). We'd have to bail before we got to the bottom, or slam into the wooden log-fence.

A close friend of mine was involved in the Cougar Helicopter crash, he was the pilot and it was probably the most horrible thing to happen in my life.

motorcycle accident several years ago in the southwest side of phoenix, back when it was pretty rural on that end. i decided to see how fast my suzuki gsx r1000 could go. i got around the 140mph mark when i hit a pot hole and became superman for a second or two. fortunately for myself, i was wearing the leathers and a helmet. there wasn't any beef jerky on the pavement, but there was a busted, broken up me lying on the ground. the police decided not to charge me with felony speeding because they knew i'd be tied up with medical bills for a very long time. i haven't ridden a motorcyle since, and i don't plan to.

Yeah, it happened last year in march so I have had a lot of time to think about it and am still trying to accept the fact that hes gone but I'm a lot better now and know that things like this can and do happen.

Haven't known anyone in a serious car crash, but lots of minor ones. 
 
I knew some one who cut their finger off, I guess that counts.

Oh, shit, I heard about this. One of my friends was a friend of his. That's pretty crazy.
 
I haven't been in too many crazy accidents. The only thing I can really think of is that my uncle was thrown from a car and shattered his leg among other things.

My mom fell through some glass while she was cleaning it. It was a tall window, and she was on her feet, so she just fell through. She still has glass in her. Luckily, she wasn't cut in half or anything.

I totaled two cars, each on a separate occasion and walked away from both.  Cars "crumple" these days so it doesn't take too much, but there you have it.

#43 Posted by NukeSpoon (530 posts) -

I fell head first down a ladder and hit my head on a wooden floor once.
 
Probably why I'm so retarded at just about anything I do these days!

my father and I were written off by a car going over the speed limit when we were coming out of our street on a sunday morning. thankfully, neither my dad or i was hurt. my younger brother was also in one when he was with a friend.

#45 Posted by PDC_Emulator (184 posts) -

My friend Big Zach was over. We call him Big Zach because I have a little brother named "Zach", so my brother Zach is little Zach.
 
So anyway, Big Zach was over, and my Rat Terrier started barking at him. My brother was lying supine on the living room floor while the dog chased Big Zach around the living with the fervor of a jackrabbit on speed. Finally, Big Zach stopped over my brother and picked up the dog in a "Circle of Life" pose. Directly after, my dog yelped and dropped a shit into my brothers mouth. That's right, my dog shit into my brothers mouth.

Last October I was coming back from a concert with a friend, and as he was calling his mother to tell him he was on his way home, he ran a red light and we slammed into oncoming traffic. Nobody got hurt but the cars were totaled.

Broke my arm, cut my chin open and minor car crashes.
