Talk about the situation when someone apologised to you

- Who apologised to you
- Why they apologised
- Where it happened
- And explain how you felt ( or what you said ) after this person apologised
On Tuesday last week, I was riding my motorbike to school. Actually, I was in a hurry; otherwise, I would have been late for the class. Unfortunately, there was heavy traffic congestion, In front of me there was just a long stream of cars and bikes. Therefore, I had no choice but to slow down and join the queue of vehicles.
Suddenly, a scooter hit me from behind, which made me get into a panic and fall off my bike. I suffered a few bruises and a minor elbow injury. A few seconds later, the rider on the scooter got off, came up to me and apologised for his carelessness. He also offered to take me to hospital for a checkup, but it was unnecessary as I was okay.
To be honest, at first, I was very angry with him for crashing into my motorbike, but his sincere concern calmed me down and I decided to accept his apology. Then, I continued on my way to school. I realize that we can all make mistakes sometimes, but if we make an apology, almost everyone will forgive us. So, it is best to own up and accept responsibility for your mistakes.
Came up to me: [phrasal verb] approached me.
Own up: [phrasal verb] admit that you are responsible for something bad or wrong.
