She stretched out her legs and put them up on the dashboard.
What Bethany didn’t realise at the time is that she would live to regret that. The events that happened next changed her life completely.
Luckily it wasn’t the 2002 Pontiac Sunfire Bethany and her partner was in. But unfortunately for Bethany, it set off a chain reaction.
The truck driver in front of Bethany slammed on his breaks to avoid hitting the accident. However, Bethany’s boyfriend didn’t have enough time to stop and re-ended the truck. Luckily for Bethany, her boyfriend was able to move the car slightly to have her legs from being crushed on impact.
The motorcyclist who’s accident set off a chain of other accidents sadly passed away. Bethany’s boyfriend had to get 100 stitches, but when Bethany woke up, she didn’t have such a lucky escape as her boyfriend.
Bethany has no recollection of the car crash, however, she lives with the after effects every day as she’s taking PTSD injections to help with the mental trauma, as well as taking 20 tablets a day to cope with the pain of the crash.
Please share with your friends and family to warn them of the dangers of putting your feet up on the dashboard while in a moving car.
