    You did the right thing though and comforting the woman was a good move. Sorry to have you witness that, though.

    I just told my brother about it and he said he was coming home at about 11:30pm and saw the car out in the field, but he thought it was just somebody looking for a dog or something and kept on driving. It couldn't have been more than fifteen minutes later that we came by and stopped.

    I didn't think we really did anything special, except for the fact that the car was so far off the road and it was hard to tell that it had been in a wreck. If we hadn't stopped there's no telling how long it would have been before someone got help. I'm pretty sure the woman had a broken hip, she couldn't really move.. and not a single car passed by from the time we first pulled up untill we left.

    I would like to think that just about anyone would stop to help someone, but in this case it was hard to tell that the car had even been in a wreck.

    I feel really sorry for the old woman.. she was going into shock, and she kept saying she lost her son and she may have killed him. That's a really terrible thing to happen to someone...

    Yeah.. I have to admit, this was the first dead body I've had to deal with. After I checked his pulse, and saw his hands were turning blue I knew there was nothing we could do for him. I was a little shaken up at first, but I'm alright now.. I just feel bad for the woman.

    I know how you feel dude. I had a similar situation happen to me about three or four months ago. Me and a few friends where heading over to my house when we saw a guy in an explorer in the middle of the road. there was a couple there that had stoped but i had to tell the police where we where.
    The worst part about this whole thing was the dude in the explorer had been drinking, he was covered in alcahol and his car wreeked of it he was missing a big chunk out of his arm and was verry incoherent. It was verry disturbing, and i hope to never see anything like that again. I am just thankfull i had not left thirty seconds earlier or i couild have been part of the accident...
    Parts left off of a car cost nothing weigh nothing and do not cause service issues.

    From working in EMS man, good job. As a note to everyone else, wear your seat belt. From firsthand experience I have seen what happens when you don't. (Not that this ever stopped me from riding my bike...) Wearing your seat belt might make it harder in some cases but most of the time it will be better. The safest place is always inside the car as being ejected from the car introduces other types of injuries and risks such as another driver not paying attention and hitting you while trying to avoid the car. Trust me, a car hitting a car is better than a car slamming into you while you're too dazed to get up properly.

    I'm pretty sure this guy was in the process of being ejected from the vehicle as it was rolling, and rolled over the top of him before flinging him out the window. He never stood a chance.

    From the injuries you described, it is probably what happened. There was an earlier story of someone hitting a tree and everyone dieing inside the car with the lone survivor living because they weren't wearing a seat belt. Again, very unlikely accident but they do happen. Wear your seat belt! Unless you're pregnant. Then you can modify it a bit.
