Chapter 711: Encountering a Car Accident
“You and Yun Er go first. I’ll wait for Old Lin here.” It was rare for her daughter and Yang Ming to have a chance to be alone, so Shen Yueping didn’t want to disturb them. They were not sitting in the same car anyway, so she let Yang Ming and Lin Zhiyun go first.
Yang Ming was also thinking about it. The speed of the Audi R8 wasn’t the same as that of an ordinary car. They would arrive first even if they departed together, so he said, “Well, Aunty Shen, I have instructed the matters over there. When the car arrives, I will call you.”
“Okay, you guys go first. When you get there, find a place to rest. We will contact you again.” Shen Yueping nodded and smiled.
It was a sin to get a high-performance sports car behind a regular van. Yang Ming and Lin Zhiyun went ahead. They went to the ring expressway and drove out of the city.
All of a sudden scattered snow fluttered outside from the sky. Yang Ming had to turn on the wipers to sweep away the snow on the windshield.
“It’s so beautiful!” Lin Zhiyun looked out the window and said sincerely, “I remember when I was young, when it was snowing, the children in the alleys ran out happily. We made snowmen and played snowballs…”
“Now you can do it, too, if you like it. I will accompany you to make a snowman and have a snowball fight.” Yang Ming said.
“But how do two people fight with snowballs?” Lin Zhiyun shook her head and smiled lightly.
“You hit me.” Yang Ming also smiled. “Or, wait until Chen Mengyan is free, and then let’s have a snowball fight together…”
“Don’t. You two must be a group. At that time, I’m the one who is being thrown at.” When Lin Zhiyun heard Chen Mengyan’s name, she was shocked. Her expression looked a little blank.
“That’s not necessarily true. You can group up with Mengyan, and then hit me.” Yang Ming saw Lin Zhiyun’s nervousness, so he comforted her.
“Hehe…” Lin Zhiyun didn’t take Yang Ming’s words seriously. It was obviously impossible for it to happen. How could she and Chen Mengyan become friends…
After passing the toll booth of the expressway, Yang Ming frowned. The fog was so thick. It was difficult to drive. It was better in the city. There was only some light snow. The Dongsong Expressway was full of fog instead.
For safety, Yang Ming turned the lights on, but some of the cars also turned on the high beam. However, Yang Ming once read a news report saying that it was more unsafe to turn on the high beam in the fog, so he didn’t switch it on.
“The fog is so thick. Can you see?” Lin Zhiyun asked with some concern.
“I can only drive slowly.” Yang Ming said, “We had passed the toll booth. It is impossible to return unless we stop at the roadside. But that is more dangerous.”
There was a separation zone between the left and right lanes of the Dongsong Expressway. They couldn’t turn around on the expressway. After passing the toll booth, they had to drive all the way.
Although it felt wrong to drive the Audi R8 at 60 kph, their own safety was more important. So, Yang Ming didn’t dare to drive too fast.
Fortunately, other cars on the way were also slow, and there weren’t any accidents. For Yang Ming’s vision, this fog was basically nothing. His eyes had x-ray vision!
However, Yang Ming was also afraid that others would hit him, so he always paid attention to the movements behind.
Up until the entrance to a small town before the city, the traffic was normal, but at the entrance to the city, there was a jam.
Yang Ming subconsciously slowed down the speed of the car.
“What happened ahead?” Lin Zhiyun asked quickly.
“I don’t know. Maybe something went wrong?” Yang Ming said this, but actually, he had seen it clearly. Two big trucks had collided together.
A large truck was going to the city, and another one was going straight. But because of the thick fog, they didn’t see each other. They slipped because of the snow on the road, and the two trucks collided together.
This was not all. The vehicles that came later didn’t notice the two trucks, so they hit the trucks directly. Yang Ming roughly glanced at it. There were thirteen or fourteen cars piled together in a series.
As Yang Ming spoke, he turned on the emergency flashers at the rear of his car. However, it was unclear how effective it would be in this thick fog.
In front of Yang Ming was a medium-duty truck which also crashed into an Audi A6 at the front. The A6’s rear was completely deformed. It seemed that this was the result of the truck’s emergency braking. Otherwise, it was unknown how the front of the Audi was like.
Yang Ming once saw a video where a three-box Hongqi  sedan was pincered by two trucks on the highway. The whole car was compressed into less than half a meter!
Even the car had become like this, not to mention the people inside the car!
“Get out of the car immediately!” Although Yang Ming’s eyesight was good and he could stop the car in time, he couldn’t guarantee that the driver behind him could make the same judgment in time!
If they were a little careless, what awaited them would be a horrible death.
“Get out of the car?” Lin Zhiyun didn’t understand. She looked up at Yang Ming with doubt.
Yang Ming was about to explain, but there were continuous and rushed honks from behind! When Yang Ming quickly looked back, guai guai long di dong , a large heavy-duty truck careened toward them!
Yang Ming could see the truck driver’s anxious and pale face along with his lips that kept cursing and praying, “Get away. Get away…”
Yang Ming knew that it wasn’t he who didn’t want to brake but he couldn’t stop the truck! After the truck driver saw the series of accidents in front and made a judgment, it was too late!
Yang Ming quickly opened the door and pulled Lin Zhiyun to the earth ditch by the side of the highway.
With a loud bang, the Audi R8 was directly pushed under the chassis of the truck in front, and the giant truck behind hit the tail of the truck at the front, making a harsh and stunning sound.
Yang Ming took a sigh of relief. Luckily, I have better eyesight than normal people. If not, I might have really died here!
“Ah-!” Lin Zhiyun screamed instead. She stared blankly at the Audi R8 that was pushed under the chassis of the front truck!
“It’s fine. It’s fine… Don’t be afraid!” Yang Ming reached out and held Lin Zhiyun in his arms. He comforted her lightly, “We are safe now…”
Yang Ming could clearly feel Lin Zhiyun’s rapid breathing and flustered heartbeat. He gently patted her back and soothed her frightened soul…
After a long while, Lin Zhiyun cried out “Wa.” She knelt down in Yang Ming’s arms and sobbed heavily. Yang Ming held her tightly. Obviously, the previous incident really scared Lin Zhiyun.
This girl who wouldn’t easily vent her true feelings was now vulnerable and helpless to reveal her true side.
“Yang Ming, I’m so scared…” Lin Zhiyun said chokingly, “We almost died…”
“What die? You have me here, so everything will be fine.” Yang Ming said firmly. At this time, he must be tougher, firmer. If he was scared, then Lin Zhiyun would be even more helpless.
In fact, Yang Ming was still fluttering with fear. He nearly died! He was having bad luck since the morning, but he didn’t expect to have such a huge misfortune!
The truck driver behind jumped out of the cab and saw Yang Ming and Lin Zhiyun standing on one side. He quickly walked over. “Brother, sister, you two are really blessed! Your reaction is fast. My truck really couldn’t brake!”
“Call the police immediately! Don’t let other vehicles behind come in again!” Yang Ming told the truck driver of the truck behind. However, those vehicles at the front should have already reported to the police. But the traffic police and the road administration were two departments. It would take some time for them to respond.
After Yang Ming finished, he took out a cell phone and called Bao Sanli.
“Are you guys departing?” Yang Ming asked urgently.
“The highway entrance is blocked. The fog is thick. We aren’t allowed to go in.” Bao Sanli replied, “I just wanted to call you, Brother Yang. Are you all right?”
“I’m fine. Then you guys wait first.” Yang Ming said, “I have something to do here. I will hang up now!”
Only after hanging up the phone did Yang Ming feel at ease. It seemed that there was some response at the highway entrance. They stopped the vehicles behind from coming in.
However, before Yang Ming put the phone away, there was another loud noise. There was another car which was chased by a heavy truck.
“Hurry and tell the driver in the car to get out!” Yang Ming shouted to the truck driver subconsciously.
“Oh, I will go now…” The truck driver ran quickly.
“Yang Ming, I’m a little cold…” Lin Zhiyun’s sobbing sound was a little smaller. She rubbed against Yang Ming’s embraced and spoke.
“Then we’ll find a place to rest.” Yang Ming looked at the situation of the car accident and it wouldn’t be solved for a while. Then he said, “This is the entrance to the city. There should be a place to rest ahead.”
