    aside from being young, I suffered a concussion, can't remember being hit, but I did create some vivid substitute memories involving me heroically riding a big wheel somewhere in the area of my grandparents home. Of course, sounds better than crossing the street when your cousin says its safe, and getting walloped!

      ..the seconds before and right after, (lying in the street)I had a concussion as well, but my understanding is that I never lost consciousness.

      My accident was quite a freak one -- crossing with the light and hit by a driver-less car rolling in reverse after being left on a hill double parked. My friend managed to jump out of the way, I wasn't so lucky, but all things considered I was pretty lucky -- I could have been killed or permanently maimed.  Funny thing I remember in the hospital was that my biggest concern once I understood my injuries weren't of a permanent nature, and my face wasn't touched, was my hair.  I couldn't stand the fact that it was knotted up and dirty; after a couple of days I convinced a nurse to wash it for me. :)
