Have you ever watched a car accident video and told yourself in your head that “heng ah, it wasn’t me or someone I know”?
I guess it’s human nature. The truth of the matter is – Even if you’re the safest driver in the world, all it takes is just one idiot driver to mess it up for you. So what happens if it happens to you or someone within your social circle? Read on to find out.
Sometime in the evening yesterday, 28th November 2019, I received a message from one of my closest friends. It was an image of his heavily damaged Honda Freed.
That’s how heavily damaged it was.
It was a pretty bone-chilling sight, but the fact that he was messaging me meant that he was fine, so that was a relief.
Eventually, he sent over the video footage of the accident. The video includes both the rear and dashcam footage.
In the video, my friend, the Freed Driver, let’s call him Jeff, for privacy sake, is filtering into an expressway. A lorry follows suit, loses control and charges straight into the back of the Freed, shattering the glass on the rear windscreen. Also, that's a damn loud bang.
In the car
There’s no in-car footage, but you can hear a brief exchange of conversations between three people in the car – Jeff and his two passengers.
Jeff and the other guy were worried about whether anyone was injured, but the lady, presumably in shock, could only think of one thing.
She was carrying Thanksgiving potluck food with her when the crash happened, and you can hear her go “Oh no! The gravy casserole’s everywhere!”

This is what Casserole looks like.
Anyhoo, I’m glad all parties are fine.
RIP Casserole. You perished so that others could live. The best Thanksgiving dish yet.
