Alicia C's Experience
I was 15 and I was riding in the care with 3 of my friends. We were heading to the next town. I was in the back seat behind the drivers side. We were coming down a hill and it was dark and raining. I told the driver to slow down because there was a curve at the bottom of the hill. When he took the curve he lost control and the car started to spin. It never rolled or crashed into anything, luckily. We ended up on the other side of the road in the ditch facing the other way. During the whole time as soon as the car started to spin. I some how ended up out side the car about 100 ft away on the side of the road. I could see the car, I could see us in the car, I could make out all the colors, I saw all the cars coming on the road along with the headlights. I could see the car spinning. As soon as the car stopped in the ditch I was back in the car. It all happened in slow motion and there was no sound. I'm not scared about it. I just don't understand how it happened.
