SHOP TALK

Every so often you witness a miracle. I believe in miracles because I’ve seen them with my own eyes. Now the kind of miracles I believe in may not be what the average person thinks of when you say that word. But they are miracles none the less. There may or may not be Angels involved, I can’t say. But the way I see it a miracle goes beyond luck. Take the driver of THIS car for instance:

This is an accident we responded to the other day. The car hit the back of the bus (obviously) and as you can see there are no skid marks. The car is about 12 feet under the bus give or take. Arriving on location I fully expected this incident to result in at least one fatality easily. To our utter astonishment not only did the driver not get decapitated, but he was up walking around none the worse for wear. He refused medical treatment and had only a minor scratch from the broken glass. You can decide for yourself if this was a miracle:

One foot further and it’s lights out for good.

The bus was full of kids at the time but in another miraculous turn of events the car took the brunt of the impact and they all walked off the bus unscathed.

    Doesn’t look like it hurt the bus much at all. Car’s gonna need some work, though…

    Reminds me of Roy Schieder in the movie: THE SEVEN-UPS
    (trivia alert – same stunt driver as in BULLITT, btw)

    Good flick.

    Roll safe out there.

  7. Miracles do happen, and miracles happen for a reason. The car is just a material thing compared to the kids in the bus and the driver of the car.
