I Collided with a Semi-Truck & Angels Saved My Life
The other day, I was involved in a collision with a semi truck. This is my story of how angels saved my life & how I walked away with only minor injuries.
I’m rewinding time to this past Monday which was just a couple days ago. That day started off really well. I ran some errands, did some shopping, had lunch with my best friend, & even stopped at the Aveda salon and splurged on some really nice conditioner. I was in my favorite car, my Maxine (yes, I named her -and yes, I also said ‘her’), which is a Maxima that has been in my family since it was driven brand new off the showroom floor in 1993. She’s the best & most dependable car I’ve ever had, & honestly I’d grown emotionally attached to her over the past 20+ years. I was almost home, driving the same route that I drive all the time. Jimmy Buffet was on the radio singing ‘Cheeseburger in Paradise’, which just so happens to be one of my favorite songs and I was singing along. I was in such a great mood.
Then, just like that – everything changed. Without going into all the details, I ended up colliding head first with a semi truck. I realized we were about to collide into each other, but there was no time to react. I tried to swerve in an attempt to avoid the collision, but it all happened in a matter of seconds & simply put, there was no way to avoid it. My tiny little Maxima against a big rig. My Maxine had no chance.
My car collided head on with a semi truck at 45mph. Do you know how many people don’t live through that kind of accident? I lived. Not only did I live, but I didn’t break a bone. I didn’t have internal bleeding. I walked away with absolutely zero serious injuries. Don’t get me wrong, I was battered & bruised for sure. Whiplash, oh yeah. The absolute worst injury I sustained are burns which removed the top layer of my skin that occurred from the airbag deploying.
But I lived & all my injuries should be healed within a couple weeks.
Here’s the thing that caused me to feel compelled to share my story. I know I was spared from that accident by angels. I literally saw it with my own two eyes. My mother clipped an angel to the visor of that car many years ago, & I’ve never removed it. Upon impact with the semi truck – right before my face collided with the airbag…..
I saw that angel sparkle.
Not like the sun hitting it kind of sparkle. I mean it sparkled. Like glitter. Tons of glitter really. I remember it so very clearly, even though I only saw it for a split second before my face smashed into the air bag.
Do you know how many airbags in 20+ year old cars don’t deploy? Mine did.
Do you know how often I’m in my car without my kids in the car? Not often at all. They’re usually with me – all 3 of them. That day, for some reason, I decided to not bring them with me.
I’m choking back tears as I write this. My kids were not in that car, all 3 were perfectly safe at home & they’re always with me y’all. I hit a semi truck head on in my tiny little Maxima – and I’m still breathing. Not only breathing, but I walked away without serious injuries. I’ll be sore for a while, but I will heal.
I am so very blessed. The beautiful sparkling angel(s) God sent down for me saved me. I believe that with all my heart. I’ve never seen anything like that glittering angel in my entire life.
I admit, I did cry over that car some. Ok, maybe more than some. I did love that car so & she deserved a few tears shed over her. But I know what’s truly important, and I can’t even put into words how thankful I am for my children not being in that car & for my life being spared.
This is an incredible story about how you survived hitting a semi! I believe that God sent his angels to save you. What a miracle that you are alive after this massive car wreck!
Thank you Lord for your protection and surrounding her with your angels
That is an amazing story.
God DOES work in wonderful ways. SO glad your angle was with you, and you were not hurt badly. Hug those kids, and save that visor clip!
The angel visor clip was the VERY first thing we retrieved from the car – and it currently is clipped to the visor in my new car.
Glad you are OK. God protects us.
I’m so glad that you’re alright!!!!
I am so very glad that you are all right (even without Maxine) and hope the drive of the truck was ok as well. I’m thankful that your children were safe and out of harm’s way. God blesses us daily and yet often times we only thank Him when we escape such near catastrophic damage! God bless and look forward to future emails.
Thankful you are ok! God provides and protects indeed!
Thankful for the Miracles that happen more often than we realize. Thankful your angels were watching over YOU!!! THANKFUL!!!!
Miracles never cease to amaze me! THANK YOU GOD!!! I’m so glad you are okay!
Yes angels are always with us as is our Heavenly Father and Jesus! I am so glad you are ok.
I am so glad that you are ok. I do believe that angels are watching over us. God had known it wasn’t your time. A few years ago I had an angel experience. I had work done on my car. Unbeknownst to me the mechanic did not tighten all the lug nuts on my front tires. My family and I were traveling on our summer vacation. While on the major highway my car started shaking bad. Pulled over. Saw nothing wrong. We continued on,driving slow. We got off our exit and went to the restaurant we go to. I noticed that some lug nuts were missing. I tried driving my car to the auto place next door. I had only 2 lug nuts left on my car. i have a big Explorer. I was so shaken. My life could have been gone. I believe that our angels held my tires on until we got close to our destination. I am so greatful to be alive.
So very glad you are OK! The angels were watching over you for sure.
Beautiful post! I know angels are beside us always. The song “How Great Thou Art” always comes to mind when I hear these wonderful stories. God bless!
God knew what He was doing the day you got in that car accident. I’m keeping you and your children in my thoughts and prayers during this time. Praying God is wrapping His arms around your family and bringing comfort during this tragic time.
Just read this and knowing what has happened since…your dear husband passing on…I think perhaps this was to help you realize that God and His angels are with you always. Yes you have now suffered a great loss but God will be with you helping you through it.
It truly WAS a miracle. God is more than Wonderful at times like this. And you have to know HE saved you for a purpose…your children need you more than ever now. Many are lifting you in prayer and I trust you can feel every one of them. Don’t ever be afraid to share your struggles and burdens. Sharing helps divide them…sharing your joys helps multiply them. God bless you richly today and in the days ahead.

God continually bless you and your kids. He protected you for sure🙏🙏🙏
An Angel saved me too. I also saw sparkling white flashes before I was blinded by my airbags. All I saw was this beautiful, bright white light. It was completely dark in my car—then, right as my car hit a guardrail going over 70mph, my eyes filled up with this bright white light. My car rolled over, was totaled and I knocked over trees. I lost consciousness. I wasn’t wearing a seatbelt either. I came to and crawled out of my upside down vehicle. My head was peeping out of the window—I do not recall being in the car after the accident. That’s my next memory. As I was sitting in shock in the mud next to the wreckage, and my car started blaring music after ten minutes or so of silence. I didn’t break a bone. I had a few stitches to my face and some minor nerve damage that affected my hands. I was fine two weeks later. I should not have survived. I cannot imagine anybody would live through such an accident. I was 43 years old when this happened 2 months ago. When I was 6, I was dragged by a school bus. Most kids are killed or lose a limb when this happens. I merely have a scar on my left leg, but that’s the extent of that injury too. Without a doubt, an Angel guards my life. I’m glad you’re safe too.
