    I was stopped two cars behind the wreck. Had time to get out of the car and rubberneck. When I saw the car on its roof I was almost sure someone had died. Glad that wasn't the case.

      They arrived too late or didn't know what to do, couldn't help much. By the comments on the Pittman story, we might as well not have a fire dept or an EMS.
