I was in Philly with family for Christmas. I decided to come home a day early because everyone was working today and my Mom was tired from yesterday. No reason to stay another day.
As I was driving east on a local road, traffic started slowing down and moving to the right. I could see ambulances and fire trucks. As I got closer, I realized it was a horrific accident. Both southbound lanes were blocked but cops were direction traffic to use the right exit lane to keep traffic moving. By the time I passed it, I was about five feet from the truck laying on its side in the below photo which I screenshot from @AtanticCity911 Twitter’s account.
What you can’t see in the photo was a small grey car pinned under truck. The truck must have been carrying dirt or maybe they put dirt down. There was dirt everywhere. First Responders had the a Tarp over the part of the truck and car. There were over 10 people with tools working on the car and under the tarp to free someone from the car. I also saw the First Responders move someone from the scene to grass on the other side. The person was laying in the grass talking on a cell phone and crying.
My stomach started turning. Tears started running down my face and I just started praying. I said every prayer I could think of for the folks in the accident. I also prayed for the First Responders. Actually most First Responders in this area are volunteers. They save lives and witness scenes like this without pay and on their own time.
Witnessing this really shook me up. I was actually crying and shaking as I continued to drive. I was thinking back to a few years ago when I had a near miss accident in the same exact intersection. When driving south on this road, you can build up speed. This intersection comes after a slight bend. If you are really flying, it’s hard to stop. It almost happened to me a few years ago and that’s why I always slow down around the section of that the road. I also know I’ve been a bit emotional as I am waiting on biopsy results. I guess my emotions are just raw. I didn’t even bother stopping at the store after that.
Here’s the article about the accident. Amazing the guy in the car is even alive. The First Responders somehow got him out…Like I said, I was directed to drive on the right hand off lane and was only a few feet from the crash while they were working to free the small grey car.
I am sharing this post express deep empathy for the folks involved in the accident and for the First Responders.
I say a prayer to ArchMichael as soon as I start my car – every time I drive! I’d like express my deep gratitude to him & my Angels for protecting me while I am on the roads🙏
