It was 2 days before Christmas 2 years ago. I was driving through my town and a car ran a stop sign. I was by then out in the middle of the intersection when I thought it was too late. I couldn't stop because he would have hit my driver's side door,and within a split second I gave my car more gas. At that very moment it felt like my car floated right around this other car. Even giving it more gas I shouldn't have made it. It was quick,but I was also aware that I was NOT in control of my car. My car felt like it floated just above the road,like my tires were barely off the ground and for that short moment it felt like time stood still. I don't even think that other car even saw me. They never hit their brakes or tried to swerve from hitting me. I was shaken up. I thanked God and my Angel. My family looked at me like I was crazy. But I don't care I was there and I know what happened. And also it was the one time I didn't have my seat belt on.
