  1. So sad. I drive transport and I passed this crash about 1 minute after it happened. Only one police car was on scene and people who witnessed the crash were near the mangled car trying to assist. The car appeared like it had just been through a car crusher. I thought that there would be no chance of any survivors in that car but apparently the woman is still alive. I assumed that this was a case of texting while driving but I highly doubt that was the case with this couple. It reminds me to live each day as if it is my last day on earth. I with this woman the best in her recovery.

  2. me and my mom were the first ones on scene only being 17 it was a harder thing to go through to help I just wish that I could have done more to get them safer and possible save at least one but the best we could do with the cop and 2 other people that showed up shortly after the accident was get Lynda out of the car I sometimes think if we got the fire out faster and got her out as fast as we could and to the hospital maybe she would have made it

  3. Zachary….you did the best you could. That’s all anyone can ask.
