At the moment she was not thinking at the time and responded, “Tell him to call when he leaves.” Nurse said,” Ma’am you do not understand, you really need to come now.” “The car is wrecked and your husband is in need of medical treatment.” “A sixteen year old boy speed onto Prospect Road and hit your husband in a head on collision; it took the Jaws of Life to get him out of the car after close to two hours.” She called the neighbor to come watch us while she goes to the hospital to see what was going on.
