I was walking with my daughter in her stroller when I heard a dull, loud thud on the road just ahead of us. I looked up to see that a car had turned left into oncoming traffic and had struck another vehicle.
The damage looked to be superficial but both drivers were very shaken. They were two moms, one with her young daughter in a car seat in the back, and the other was pregnant.
Other cars that had witnessed the collision either drove by and ignored the situation or honked and waved their hands angrily. I guess the inconvenience of having to drive around the two cars was clouding their vision.
One young man pulled over to help. He moved both women and the child off of the road and into his car. He proceeded to calm everyone down and got the women to make phone calls to their families while they waited for the police to arrive.
I’m sure that both mothers, and their families, are extremely grateful for this stranger stopping to help them.
