Last year I started taking violin lessons. Coming home from a lesson in May this year I had a serious accident when I hit a large truck that should have stopped at a junction but didn’t.
The car was a write off. The violin smashed through a rear window and was found by the fire crew in a field nearby. The case was damaged but the violin was completely alright!
I suffered a few broken bones, mostly in the chest and back, but am now well on the way to recovery. I can’t go in a car for another month, but as soon as i can i will then resume the lessons.
I would have been very upset if my violin had been seriously damaged.
