Fortunately, no one was hurt. Unfortunately, the car is totaled, the driver will be sore, the road on both sides closed down, until it was cleared, and the worst part is that this is not the first time something like this has happened at this intersection. It is an all to frequent occurrence, especially on wet, rain or snowy days. It is magnified when it is dark out and, unfortunately, that comes a lot earlier now with daylight savings time. What is very revealing, when you come upon scenes like this, are the number of people that stop and are willing to do what is necessary in order to help whomever may need it. The sacrifices people are willing to make in order to help another person in need is truly selfless. As I drove by, I realized that the accident happened very recent, I didn’t take a single moment of contemplation. Though I saw others who were already on the scene, I jumped out of my truck and went over to the cars to make sure there was no serious injury, and to lend a hand should it have been necessary. I was prepared to act, should there have been other immediate dangers. Only when I got back into my truck, once emergency personnel arrived, whom I have immense reverence for, did I realize that there was no consideration to any other possible dangers. It was pure adrenaline and I acted on impulse. Ironically, it wasn’t until I heard the continual chime of my seatbelt off indicator, that I realized actually had just happened. Have a great Tuesday. If you are in a location that has elections, get out and vote! Otherwise, be safe!
