I was walking down to the gas station by my house, crossing at the crosswalk (with the light) at a four-way intersection and got hit by a truck! I had just crossed both southbound lanes and was in the left-hand northbound lane when a truck that was turning into that lane plowed right into me and tossed me a couple feet.

I noticed him at the last second and was able to brace for it, sort of. I took the brunt of the impact on my right arm, right knee, and right hip, and when I landed I landed on my left knee. I immediately got up and hobbled myself out of the street and then collapsed by a light post. The guy pulled into the parking lot of the gas station, thankfully, and got out to check on me. "Are you alright??" "Well, no." He called the cops, and so did someone inside the gas station because I had apparently yelled "OH SHIT" so loud when I got hit that they heard me inside from about 75 yards away.

The cops were there within a minute and a half and started taking down our information. Medics came a couple minutes later to check me out. No serious injuries, just some bruising and scraping. I declined an ambulance ride and didn't go to the hospital. If the truck had been any bigger, I probably would've just gotten plowed over. If it had been a car I would easily have a broken leg or something. Plus the guy's truck had a bump bar which depressed with the impact (I'm assuming) so I was hit with it instead of the front end of his truck.

All in all I've got a nice scrape on my right elbow and right knee, my right hip is a little swollen, my left knee is slightly swollen as well, and all the muscles on my right side are tense and sore like I just got done with a very one-sided workout. I feel alright, surprisingly, even though it's hours later and the adrenaline has worn off. I've had worse bicycle accidents, to be honest. I'm just glad I don't have to work in the morning because I'm sure I'll feel worse.

No, I was pretty disappointed in myself because I usually have good reflexes. I was distracted by the sight of one of those new DVD rental vending machines across the street outside the gas station. It was all lit up and bright red and it distracted me just long enough. I caught movement in my periphery at the last second giving me just enough time to brace and not just get slammed.

Oh hey, one of those DVD rental things. And it's outside, haven't seen one outdoors bef- what's tha-
OH SHIT

I never expected to get run down in a fucking crosswalk. Of course it's one of the few times I'm never super vigilant about crossing the street.

My dad's fiancee's nephew was supposed to move here from South Africa and do his last semester of highschool then apply to Canadian universities so he could get the hell out of South Africa. But like a month ago he was riding a motorcycle and got hit by a truck as it was pulling a right turn, and like broke his pelvis and a lung and lost his gallbladder. So, could have been worse.

If Ztolk made this thread it would probably be titled "A truck got hit by me".

Glad you're alright Phil, but for whatever reason the thought of you yelling "OH SHIT" and bouncing off a truck is a funny image. I'm sure it would be considerably less funny if you'd been seriously injured, but the fact that you got that yell off makes me giggle.

That would've been worse, actually, because the newer trucks are taller and would've knocked me under the truck instead of bouncing me off. Plus this guy's truck had a bump bar which probably depressed with impact.

Oh, I won't. I need to have a professional come out to check my furnace, then I need to buy some furniture, and then I need to pay off my debt to Wells Fargo. I might have enough left over to buy a 360.

Make sure it's going slow enough that the medical bills are only 346 bucks.

I know he didn't suffer any real injuries, but even when you suspect something is wrong with you, you end up spending more than that just be told you're fine.

As long as you're in the crosswalk and have the light, yes. So my advice is to spend about 8 hours a day crossing the street with the light.
