Re: Goooood Morning SHR -Wednesday

We've got milder than usual weather for Oct ourselves, low 80's here for a high. Though it won't last long, a cold front moves after the weekend to cool things down where they need to be. I'll miss the warmer than usual weather. But can't complain in the upper 60's to low 70's. :)

Re: Goooood Morning SHR - Friday

Today there was a bad accident involving five teens in one car, I was one of those that aided in the response because I was there before fire, police, and rescue. Lets just say I was there moments after it happened. There were fractures and broken bones, no fatalities. I did traffic control for about 1/2 an hour as I have the training for it while working for York County SO. There were also volunteers from North Conway on seen who witnessed the crash. The car rolled a couple of times when it went off the road with a tree puncturing the engine compartment and another punctured the trunk area...there was nothing left of the undercarriage. I know all this because I took a few minutes looking for leaking fluids as the car was smoking when I arrived. As you can imagine, it was a very bloody scene. Anyway, there was one member of the Bridgton Fire Dept working traffic from the Naples side of the hill and I was working traffic on the lower end of the hill and we were yelling back and forth to each other. This is when being involved in so many different committees is a good thing because people know you by name. One kid was able to climb out on his own, but the other four were pinned inside and had to wait for further assistance. They found three laptops that were school property that appeared in the power on position and asked me if the school district would give them permission to access them as part of the investigation and I said "be my guest" as we have a policy to not impede a law enforcement investigation and because I was only a few hundred feet from the Superintendent's Office, I stopped in to give them a brief update as to what was going on.

I can still hear the screams of those kids in my head and see all that blood all over and all that broken glass. What a horrible scene. You just can't unsee or unhear something like this. I have not seen anything like that in many years. The last time, it was a drunk driver who walked away with no injuries.

I was originally headed to the church to set up for youth group. When I got there we had a short time of prayer for all these teens.

Goooood Morning SHR

I'm back. Had to log off earlier 'cuz I had to get to work at 6:00 to let the floor guys in. They wanted to get an early start so they could finish early and go home. There out of Tenn. and we're in Morgantown, WV.

I know what you mean, Beav. I used to be a tow truck operater in my younger years and some of the accidents we had to go on were not the best of seens. I'd get to some at the same time as the ambulance. And it's not always a pretty site.

Re: Goooood Morning SHR - Saturday

Thanks for today's TV schedule, awsum. I didn't get to watch practice or qualifying yesterday due to a kitchen plumbing project, but I plan on watching today starting at 11am. Had to run out twice for parts and it took longer than I thought it would. But, at least it's done and I only have a couple small leaks (I hate plumbing). :x Give me an electrical project any day. :D

I just wish Verizon FiOS would upgrade FS2 to HD. Guess I should just be happy that I get the channel without paying any more for it. Still... :|

Re: Goooood Morning SHR - Saturday

Beave,
It is always difficult to see an accident let alone young people. The few that I have seen still are in my mind. I don't think you can ever shake the sights and sounds of an accident. Lucky you were there to help. Hope they are all okay.

Re: Goooood Morning SHR - Saturday

Can't watch any of the practices since we don't get FS2 and I refuse to pay more on my cable bill. It is expensive enough. I am thinking of changing to Direct TV or the Dish. Not sure which one yet. I am tried of all the nonsense. Then TW advertises on TV that you can have the bundle we have for 79.99 a month for newbies. Boy if that doesn't rub salt into the wounds of those of us who have been with them for years and pay 179/mo.

And it just keeps going up! :( :( .....I have TW too, and I found out that you don't have to pay for FS2, but you have to call and have them reset your box..... You can't re boot they have to reset it. At least you can get the channel but because it isn't high definition..... It really pixelates the cars on the track. But you do get to see all the practices.... :)

Re: Goooood Morning SHR - Saturday

wow beaver, good thing you was there able to help them youngsters. To think that the rest was trapped & what if there was leaks that would cause an explosion. My lord, I don't know what you could have done to help rescue them before something like that would have happened.

The way teens drive anymore around here, I would say it wouldn't be a bad idea to raise the driver's permit up from 16 to 18 or 19 even.

Re: Goooood Morning SHR - Saturday

I went back by the scene of the accident today...no skid marks, a long line of tracks going through the weeds before losing control and rolling a couple of times into a ditch.

When I noticed there were no skid marks, first thing that came to mind was "ain't that odd"...the next thing was "distracted driving or excessive speed, maybe both" Thing was angle of the marks in the weeds leading to the final resting spot tells me that it was possible distracted driving with possible excessive speed.

Remembering how they ended up, I have been trying to figure out how they got that way because it is hard to explain but they were resting on the drivers door, roof facing the road, car rolled twice, this happened in a wooded area, one tree punctured the engine compartment and one tree punctured the trunk compartment as well as nothing left of the undercarriage because of all these trees...near as I can guess is that it was the trees forcing this car back up on its side into the hill side of the ditch. This may sound pretty cut and dry, but they were not exactly on their side as they were more at an angle, with the passenger side of the roof tilted more towards the road.

I also know that when a vehicle rolls, typically when going into a ditch it goes passenger side first and then rolls. Not watching it happen, I wonder what happened because all the debris was behind the car or below the undercarriage...nothing where the volunteers or emergency workers were going to get hurt by anything except by some glass.

Fortunately, no fatalities. All our students sign an agreement stating they will not use any electronic devices in their vehicles once they leave school grounds and that vehicle is in operation and that includes anything that belongs to the school district and that includes air books, ipads, tablets, netbooks, or laptops to name a few.
