Evidence of my accident. So, on August 8th 2006, my sister, my best friend and I hit the road - driving from N.Y. to find a new home in LA, California. The morning of the 11th of August we found ourselves in New Mexico very close to our dream destination, a whole new life, free of the past pain awaited, but on Route 66 at 3:23pm my backtire blew out. Car flipped 9 times. We survived They say.
