CNN Opinion by Anne Legamayo, 7/27/2021
In the middle of winter, in January 2021, I got into a car accident in Oregon. I’m a producer for CNN, so my life is divided into the stories I cover — and this happened right after President Joe Biden’s inauguration, when New York City was reaching out to vaccinate seniors who didn’t know how to sign up online.
It was snowing that day. Local news in Oregon said it was the first significant snowfall in months, and reported a handful of other car slippages and accidents.
I still have no memory of the accident — the police report says my car slipped into the other lane and crashed headlong into another. The people from the other car walked away from the accident — thank God — and I ended up with a traumatic brain injury, or TBI.
