  • Mood:

when bad things happen to good people.

Not long before my shift began last night, a car became disabled out in the county, and the driver's son went out to help. A good samaritan stopped also, and when my friend went up to the window to thank that driver a woman driving way too fast lost control and crashed into them. My friend, a great father, former coworker (he also dispatched here) and one of the most purely good, honest men I've ever known, is on an operating table now, and will come out of it without a leg -- if he comes out at all.

The stupid driver who doesn't know to slow down on snowy county roads wasn't injured.
