5x Rollover Accident

Hello, my name is  Eden and I am asking for help. My mother and I recently got into a 5x roll over car crash. We were on our way home from visiting family in Florida. My mother noticed that I had taken my seatbelt off to try to sleep comfortably so she woke me and made me put my seatbelt on. 5 minutes later the most traumatic experience of my life happened. A girl speeding and weaving in and out of traffic decided to pass us using the emergency lane. She nearly ran our witness off the road. He saw her terrible driving and saw her get into the emergency lane. Seconds later she plowed into us going about 100 mile per hour. That impact sent our car out of control skipping across all the lanes heading straight for the highway wall. I would have been dead from being crushed by the wall if my mother hadn't turned the wheel with her whole might! I still have flashbacks of the wall coming straight at me as I braced myself for death. Our car's right backside slammed into the wall which made the car ricochet and then we flipped 5 times. We had valuables that my mom's grandma that passed away left her as memories. Those boxes slammed into us as the car flipped, glass shattered, water from the cooler my grandma packed full of treats and food for our trip home poured all over us and at some point slammed into me. To me the car seemed to flip endlessly then finally landed on the passenger side where I sat. Things and glass were falling all over us. My mom called out for me and just as I answered her we heard ¨THE CARS ON FIRE! GET OUT!¨ 2 witnesses pulled us through the front windshield.  Once we were out my mother grabbed me and we hugged so tight. We were in such shock and disbelief that we were alive.  Our car was a Toyota Rav4 and let me tell you, I highly recommend everyone to get one because you have no idea how bad our accident really was. Words cannot express the force of the impacts our car protected us from. When I get older, a Rav4 is the only car I want. Anyhow, the police were horrible. My mother was in pain and the police told the EMS that they can go even after my mom asked about 3-4x if they can take her to the hospital. My mom is always so nice and never wants to be trouble so she told me she'd be alright but I knew she was just saying that so I wouldn't worry. The police were so rude which didn't make sense at the time but then my mom found out that the girl that hit us was the daughter of a Sheriff Lieutenant. She didn't even get ticketed then. My mother had to fight and fight and fight with the police to add the witness and fix the report to tell what really happened. FINALLY the girl was ticketed and last I knew my mom said she was wanted by the police. My poor mother has suffered so much physically and mentally. She left an abusive marriage, fought to protect us from our fathers craziness,  and at one point worked 3 jobs to support us. My mother has been the most loving mother and an amazing role model for my brothers and me. She would do anything for anyone. I remember when I was about 9yrs old we saw a women and her 3 kids begging in front of a food store. My mother told the woman to come with us. She gave the woman a shopping cart and together they filled the basket up to the top and my mom paid for the entire cart without asking questions. That was just one of the times. She has paid the restaurant bill for an old couple, some Military men, and bought shoes for a homeless man that stole my brothers shoes when we were fishing by the bridge. She actually made him cry because she listened to him. Instead of being mad at him she asked him how he got to be homeless. After hearing his story we packed up our things, went to BJ's and bought shoes, canned food, gatorade, and some other stuff.  We would raise money for our schools, the American Cancer Society, and synagogues. She never asked for anything, always remained anonymous. My mom always taught us to do good for others in need. Now she's in need. She cannot work due to her injuries, she needs surgery but the risk is terrifying. She is in constant pain. Even if she could work she lost her car. The girl's insurance still hasn't accepted responsibility and avoiding phone calls. My mom's insurance covered the cars value but not the full amount of what is owed. It breaks my heart that my mother has to go through this, its so unfair.  She has been nothing but a good person and doesn't deserve this. I wish I were old enough to work so I can help with the expenses but I can't so this is the only way I know how to help. She really needs to have a car as soon as possible,  money to help with the bills because she is unable to work and some money to help pay for her schooling. Physically she can no longer work the jobs she did before and needs to make a career change. Plus I REALLY want my mother to be able to get another Toyota Rav4 because its the only car I feel safe in. Thank you for listening and no matter what the amount is, thank you for giving. Please drive safe and have a blessed life. 

With much appreciation,
Eden
