Safety during a car crash

In 2010 I was in an auto accident. I was driving on a very straight stretch of road that had a center turning lane, where cars from either side can turn left or right. Traffic, including me, was moving at about the speed limit, 45 miles per hour. As I was driving, a car headed in the other direction suddenly came out of its lane only a few hundred feet away. It was probably less than a second before we hit almost head on. The car behind me was not able to stop in time and quickly became part of the collision.

When I was in the moment, seeing everything happen, I immediately had a feeling that I was being completely surrounded by divine Love. I sensed that, whatever was going on, I was being cared for by God. I also remember thinking, This is going to be interesting.

I had been able to turn the steering wheel just enough to the right so the point of impact was on the left front of my vehicle. When I later mentioned this to my insurance agent, he was surprised because “normally” that kind of immediate reaction would not have been possible. After the cars had crashed, I was able to crawl out of mine without any problem. My vehicle and the vehicle that hit me were damaged beyond repair, while the third vehicle was extensively damaged. I later found out that one driver was seriously injured. This young man, who had caused the crash by falling asleep at the wheel, was brought to the hospital, but released the next day. The driver behind me was completely fine.
