I hope you feel better soon! At least it wasn't worse as you said. And, you came to the right place for condolences!
I just missed one today.
I live in Manhattan, crossed the street at the light like a good little girl, and after about 6 steps heard the screeching of tires, a thump and then that sickening crunch. I turned around and it was a three car accident. A cabbie ran the light, slammed into another cab that then slammed into a parked van that went onto the sidewalk and just missed a person who was selling books. One cabbie immediately high-tailed it, the other had a crumbled front and there was smoke coming from it/or the van. It was really scary. This is why I prefer the subway, those guys are maniacs.
