The car crash, the note, the beauty of things that don't make sense.

The car crash, the note, the beauty of things that don't make sense.

There are a few reasons I love what pastor Shaun King wrote about a car crash he was in:

1. The title of his post was "I experienced a miracle and I'm not a loon."

2. It contains these words:
"Knowing that I would not be able to talk once they started operating on my face (while I was awake),
I began to beg nurses to write a note on my chest that said,

"I still believe in the Goodness of the Lord"

After begging two nurses to write the note and trying to tell them that I wasn't crazy, the third nurse wrote the note and placed it on my chest. I asked her to not let anyone remove the note and pointed to it every chance I got. It is on my chest with my blood on it in this photo.

3. It reminds me that God is big and wild and unexplainable.

That story is amazing. I got chills. I have a friend who was in a car accident and her five-year-old son's face was messed up really bad. If you look at the crash photos, he should have died. But he said that Jesus held him back during the crash. If you look at the outline of where his head should have been in comparison to where it actually was (there was a blood-stain) on the seat, it looks like someone DID hold him back. But the EMTs said it would have been impossible for him to not have been pushed forward. Crazy.

Wow. That was exactly what I needed to read today. A friend of mine was diagnosed with stage 4 esophogeal cancer, and it doesn't look good. I keep praying for a miracle, but I know that God doesn't always do what we want. This was great. God does still perform miracles and He is awesome!

I don't know why these accidents are happening. If they drived carefully i hope it might not happen.
Most of the accidents are happening due to OVERSPEED. Life is in our hands.

The seriousness of car accidents has prompted vehicle manufacturers to devise and use new safety measures in their cars. Proximity meters are used in some recent cars. These meters can detect the safe distance from a vehicle ahead of it and can automatically change the acceleration of the vehicle to maintain that distance. Another invention is the built-in breathalyzer or the sobriety meter which locks the car if it detects over 10% of alcohol in the breath of the driver. There are other simple measures such as automatically inflating air cushions and seatbelts. There is always some legislation involved with a car crash. The severity of the legislation depends on the impact of the crash. People involved in a car crash are supposed to stall their vehicle and inform the police immediately. The party responsible for the crash may have to compensate the injured victim. Suits are filed if the case is too serious; otherwise a roadside settlement may be done with the traffic policeman as the intermediary. For more details do visit us at Car Accident Claim.
