Narrative Essay On A Car Crash

Improved Essays
It started out as a normal day for me and my family. it was supposed to be a lazy day for everyone. My days had consisted of watching television and eating snacks instead of actual meals. I was watching my favorite TV show at the time when my dad had received a call from my brother’s mom, something had happened to my brother. My brother had gotten into a car crash. He was alright, although now I cherish him more and worry about my family’s car safety a little more than I used to.
It all started when my dad got a phone call. My dad was on the phone for not very long till he calmly said “Sydnie we need to go, Kendall got into a car accident,” but you could see the panic in his eyes as he briskly searched for his keys, Nike tennis shoes and charcoal

My brother’s car was the one that was damaged, not the other car. The front of Kendall’s car was all crushed and messed up, you could see that the air bags had gone off in the two front seats. I got a numbing sensation as I looked around and couldn't see my brother, considering my dad made me and my sister wait in the cold, air conditioned car. Eventually I found him talking to one of the police officers. All I saw were the very few police cars, my brother’s friends that were in the car with him, their parents, Kendall, my dad and Jenny, Kendall’s mom.
Everyone had looked okay, it didn’t look like anyone got hurt, maybe some bruises but no ambulances needed to be called so that was a relief. For assurance Skylar’s mom, Hope, came up to my dad’s Dark Gray Dodge Charger, where me and Alexa were sitting, I opened the door and the words she said made all the difference. I remember her saying with confidence and with a relieved look in her eye “Kendall is going to be alright, no one got

My grandma was very sick at the time so Kendall wanted to drop by to say hello, even though they weren’t his grandparents they were mine and Alexa’s. Also we wanted to let my mom know in person what had happened and how everyone was alright. Luckily all Kendall walked away from that crash was a huge bruise on his forehead from the hard impact from the white airbags. What had happened in the crash was that the car in front of my brothers car stopped really quick in front of him and he the brakes didn't work fast enough because the car on front was too close. Maybe Kendall could have paid attention more, or maybe the other driver could have slowly slowed the car down giving him enough time to safely stop as well. We will never know for sure who’s fault it was because they could both be bias and no one else was there to witness it.
About five years later in 2017, Kendall has had two more cars after his car he crashed five years ago. His light gray car, is he got after his crashed car. Although unfortunately that car had burned out as me, him, and my little sister were driving up to my dad’s apartment in Lenexa. His mom, a couple days later, helped him buy a new sleek, dark blue car which is what he drives currently. I love driving with him and spending time with him and I feel safe when he drived because he has learned from his

    I skipped school to take my behind-the-wheel drivers test. Both of my parents came to support me while my body was crawling with nerves. I didn’t really drive often before this so, I didn’t really know what to expect and felt like I would make dumb mistakes that all older, experienced drivers knew about. I’m not going to go through the whole processes of my test step by step because it’s pretty self explanatory, but long story short, I got my license. While all my friends had their own cars, I had to drive my dad’s car which is a 2014 White Toyota Highlander.…

All I was thinking, “Is everyone else alright?”, before I worried about myself. Which is strange for a ten year old to think.…

    They had a priest that came, and talked about his spirit. My cousin and sister gave a speech about how my grandpa was so loving and caring. I was not supposed to give a speech, but I wanted to because something bizarre happened that day.

    However, when they are about to pass under a bridge the driver, Gerald, tells him to go back in the car so he doesn’t get hurt. At that moment, Oskar in his brain made the word “invincible” (317). Though Oskar still makes up inventions and “makes” words, the word “invincible” shows he has achieved a healthier state of mind from the beginning of the book when all he could see was the word “fragile.” When Oskar gets home from visiting his father and “burying” his memory, he tries to go to bed but can’t without talking to his mom. As he talks to her he cried and “wanted to tell her all of the lies I’d told her” (324).

    I peered under the hood to find that my dad already had my sixteen-dollar chrome air cleaner off and was adjusting the old Quadrajet. I looked with envy at the shiny Edelbrook carburetor that sat on a shelf to my left. I had wanted to replace my carburetor for a while, but I couldn’t justify the cost. My car was running well enough. It idled roughly, and like a spoiled child, refused to move if it thought it was too cold outside of the garage.…

    I went to hug my family because I wanted them to know I loved them a lot. My mom was still crying because she thought we had hit a car; a miscommunication on her part. I did not say anything about her crying because she was a scared mother, and she needed to just cry it out before she could feel better. When I was released from her hug, I watched as the kind man, whose house was near the wreck, and my dad come up with a plan to get the car out of the ditch and onto a car trailer. They both worked to get the hook somewhere on the car, so the winch could pull the car onto the trailer.…
