I have no memory of the accident, the 5 minutes leading up to it, or the rest of that evening, apart from some very small snippets (the front wheel locking up, being loaded into the ambulance, my wife arriving at the hospital).
I should have been killed, but the only injury I had was a broken finger. I was very stiff for a few weeks and still struggle to bend down.
To my knowledge I went though no fear or pain. Had I died there would have been no moment of realisation.
On the one hand it's quite scary, but also, strangely, quite comforting.

I experienced that slow down of time sensation, twice in my life. Once when I was a kid and almost hit by a car, and someone yelling to me..."Watch out". The car clipped my arm. Then another time when on the passengers side of a car, and almost being hit on the drivers side of the car, by another car at a stop sign, that the driver in my car went a little too far past. It also happened to my cousin some years back, when he fell 3 stories from a construction site he was working on.

None the less, a wild sensation.
