You get what everyone gets…

… You get a lifetime.

I saw someone die today. Or as close as I think I ever want to be to it.

I was out driving around looking for work and ended up stuck in a traffic jam that was caused by a car accident on the road ahead of me. I’ve no idea how long before I got there the accident occurred but it couldn’t have been that long. From what I could see of the aftermath, I think one of the cars had tried making a left-hand turn across traffic and got t-boned. They either misjudged the distance, or the oncoming driver just didn’t see them. The police were on the scene and the ambulance had just arrived and traffic was slowly being redirected. As I was waiting for my turn to be detoured away I sadly had a fairly unobstructed view of the crash and watched morbidly as the paramedics and fire fighters pulled a bloody corpse from one of the vehicles. I have no idea if it was a man or woman as they draped a blanket over it and took it away fairly quickly.

I really don’t know how I feel about the whole thing. I’m still in shock and slightly sick to my stomach when I think about it.
