Writer's Block: Close Call

Accidents happen all the time, and often we walk away miraculously uninjured. What has been your closest call with avoiding serious harm in an accident?
Before I could drive really well my mom took me out to a four lane intersection with a median and made me drive into it. She didnt tell me which way we were going or anything an di'd never done it before so, of course, we ended up going the WRONG way down the highway. That was bad, and totally not my fault. But there were very few cars because it was late.
