1. When I was on the road a car appeared out of nowhere from the cross street. When I was about to hit that car I stepped on the brake hard. Thankfully we didn't end up in a car accident.2. At the moment I was about to hit the passerby I swerved my car.
 When I was about to.. At the moment I was about to..
I am sorry that I am late. I got hng up in traffic.
