So how do we prevent this from happening to someone else?

Accidents happen, and we're just glad to know this one turned out well. Thank you for letting us know the outcome Tiffany! We love good news!

"Accidents happen"? Sure they do. And sometimes people do stupid things. Isn't it relevant to ask what we should do to prevent such stupidity? People get hurt. Roads are blocked. Emergency personnel are taken away from aiding unavoidable emergencies. Lots of wasted money. "Accidents happen"? Poor response to a valid question.

Rex, since I don't have the details at this time, I don't believe I'm in a position to judge here. But I am glad we had the response that saved a life and I hope that should you or I ever need the same service, we are able to get it.
Rex Smithers October 19, 2012 at 04:46 AM
Sharon, you can bet your... lets just say I will never be hit by a car on a frickin highway at night. Stupid is as stupid deserves. Please do not lump me into your hopes of needing such services. If I am stupid enough to get hit by a car, I don't want to inconvenience a single soul. I'll take the hit. Some people will make excuses for every situation no matter the ignorance and negligence. Do you people just post and read later with a smile or do you ever consider the message you are sending out? Of course if your boy Grant would have said what I have, you would place a smiley face at the end of your sentences. All due respect of course have a nice day and splendid and all that.
