California 2010-Oh yeah, I got hit by a car

No my car did not get hit by car, I got hit by a car. So, I'm in the Walmart parking lot just minding my own business and walking to my car when a huge red truck backs into me. Hard. See no one was parked next to him so he gunned it. My hip and my shoulder felt it the most.

These pictures are about a week and a half later. I need to upload the ones from my phone.

My hip. Although darker, hurt less than my shoulder. But it probably had a bigger knot. No, I did not get his information or his license plate number. Honestly, my first thought was, "at least it wasn't the car". I was driving my sister's car. Plus, he was mexican. 

My shoulder. Totally faded. The blank spot is where he acually hit my arm. The bruising spread all around it. When I got back to the campsite I felt bad for running late. Then I said, "I go hit by a car", and my mom didn't hold it against me. I said, " it doesn't look too bad" and my mom said,
"just you wait, I think it's going to bruise all the way down your arm". Something about blood and gravity I think.
It almost made it to my elbow joint. This is toally faded. Like I said, a week and a half later. I'll post other pictures.

Anyone want to have a worst luck contest?


That's probably a good idea, cause I would totally whoop you all.

My 1sy instinct was sue the guy, but then I'm thinking, for what? but seriously i can't believe he hit you and nothing is going to happen with it, he just gets off scott free.
I can't believe you weren't in more pain from it. that's some crazy bruising!

Those are some sweet battle wounds!! Next time i suggest not getting into a fight with a car...we always lose. I really hope it doesn't feel as painful as it looks though!! Ouch!

I can’t imagine how painful those bruises are! Where’s the driver of the car that hit you? Did he run away just like that? I’m sure there are CCTV cameras around the parking lot that can help you catch that reckless driver. I just hope that you didn’t just let it pass.

That’s the problem with drivers, they act like they own the road which, most often than not, results in accidents. Well at least your life was spared! By the way, did the driver help you in any way?
