Quick update

Phew! Son 1 and I escaped unharmed when a lorry shunted a car into the back of ours yesterday evening. We were pretty shaken and the car will have to be scrapped - two passengers in the middle car were hurt but not, I think, too badly. Everyone (road users, police, pompiers, garagistes) was wonderful.

Oh Floss, I am so glad you and your son are okay. Not a nice thing to happen. Make sure you have no problems with your back and neck won't you. It is surprising what a shunt in the back of the car can do.

Oh blimey how scary. Glad you are all ok - like Serenata says make sure you go to the Docs if you get any neck/back/head aches/pains AND take it easy for a day or so xxx

Floss, you may feel shock for a day or so, take things easy. It's a horrible thing to happen. Prayers for you.

What a close shave, Floss. Glad to hear that you and Son 1 are fine.

What a scare. Glad you are both ok.

Goodness, you poor things, what a shock. Take it easy for a few days, won't you? Sometimes, when the adrenaline wears off, it's possible to feel worn out and a bit weepy, look after yourselves. xx

Scary and SOOOOO glad you and your son are ok. Stay well...

Carol said...

Thank goodness you are ok. Could have been such a different outcome, watch out for 'shock' setting in.
I was very lucky 2 days ago, friend's car just 'died' on a busy road, fortunately no lorry behind us. We tried pushing it into layby but it was up an incline, loads of traffic, no one stopped until probably the oldest guy in the district turned into our knight in shining armour.

Oh, horrid! So glad that you are all OK.
That happened to us a few years ago. I felt shocked for a few days then my neck bothered me. I had whiplash and not known for a few days. Look out for signs, and do not ignore them.

What a nasty surprise! Thank goodness it wasn't more serious. As everyone has said, keep an eye out for whiplash and shock in the next couple of days. Sorry again that our holiday plans have come to naught. Ah well! Dormouse xx

How frightening, so glad you aren't injured...though, I shake up like that can find you feeling jarred and bruised days, even weeks later. Please take it easy! xo

Oh Floss, I am sorry to hear of this.
Thank God you are both ok. Like your readers said ensure you get checked and get x-rays. How quickly it all happens contributes to the shock.
My best
