Well, I have been ran over before, but not nearly as badly as you were by the sounds of things. I can't speak for PTSD as that's not my area experience-wise but I can give an opinion or a thought or two.
How many times in your life did you cross the road without issue? Probably thousands. One incident, no matter how bad, should not stop you from navigating them as you always did before. I know that's easier said than done, but you just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and an a-hole driver that obviously wasn't paying attention managed to be there at the wrong time for all concerned too. This is very unlikely to ever happen again, even less so now with how cautious you would be in future. You can do things to take control of your thoughts, like your CBT, but ultimately I think it's a case of reminding yourself of how rare an event like this is in the grand scheme of things. I know I'm not much use here but at least you now know one other person that's been ran over and has managed to get on with things okay. In time you'll do the same too I hope. Good luck with the CBT and I hope you manage to get these things out of your head before long.
