I understand the pain of a mother who has lost a child in the Greyhound Bus crash, and her remarks regarding the drivers who stopped at the scene and then left.
• The SUV was on its side, which would make rescue by untrained persons difficult if not impossible without injuring the victims worse.
• Had they removed the victims, they would have moved them across two more lanes of speeding traffic to a safe area.
• . The drivers who stopped were placing themselves in danger by even stopping to try to assist. As this accident progressed, it was a wonder that more people were not killed or injured just by stopping at the scene.
• None of these drivers who stopped, caused or were responsible for the accident for which they were trying to render aid.
In no way am I suggesting who or what caused the accident or death of the three young ladies. All I am saying is for these people to did what they tried to do does not make them selfish or cowards.
For what they tried to do may have been foolish and dangerous, but in my opinion, they were brave and courageous placing their own lives in danger for even a short period of time.
