A Selfie After A Car Crash

Seatbelts Save Lives. “Thankyful” 2 be Alive. Who knew going from 75 mpg to 0 in 75 SEC for fear your car would blow up from gas leaking... major hole in gas tank.... Thankyou TN emergency services!!!! Wear your sealtvrlts at all tones. Make sure your pets have leashes and/ or are in kennels and are in the back seats at all times and all electronics are in bags for a quick escape. All of these tips helped us grasp and escape quickly. Electronics can cause static electric spark in cars that leak gas and when your at the gas pump and can gas fume fast. Also always have your dogs in the back seat in leashes and or in cages for safety purposes if you get in a car accident if they get our they can’t run into traffic and get hit on a major highway. In our case we were able to grab and run fast while our car leak all of the fuel in 20 seconds and the interior of the car smelled of gas fumes. A carburetor or alternator from another car fell off and hit 5-7 of us and bounced under our car hitting our car..Wear seat belt please.
