Nice job bro!!!!As I was getting onto an expressway this morning a lady passed me, entered a turn a bit hot, overcorrected, spun with brakes locked up, shot up an embankment then rolled her Mercedes E350 a few times coming to rest upside down back on the road. Would have been good footage if I only had a dash cam as I came to a halt in her dust cloud.
Adjacent driver and I ran to render assistance , he called it in to 911 and got involved with details reporting an injury accident while I did what I could.
All doors were jammed from the barrel rolls but a passenger window was smashed so I could coax the sole occupant to back out the opening. Fortunately she was a little oriental lady, and could back out through the broken window frame on hands and knees. No air-bag deployment and no seat-belt I assume as I found her crawling on the roof in the back seat. Got her seated curbside and a quick triage revealed bloody torn up back of hands and a floppy broken finger which I had her put back in place and hold secure while I ran back for some clean rags I had for a compress. BY then other folks were showing up so I crawled into her car to turn off ignition key and retrieve her purse and cell phone from the very back. She never said a word but began shaking and moaning a bit as EMTs arrived about five minutes later. Shock.
Scary stuff how quick things can go bad. She was lucky to escape with the mangled hand and a minor but bloody scalp wound. All I can say is advice to wear your seatbelt and watch out for less attentive drivers! She easily could have spun into me had I been a few seconds faster.
Nothing heroic, just being a Good Samaritan. Later I did give a homeless vet a few dollars and dropped spare coins in the Salvation Army kettle while shopping though. That should count for something.
