Friday morning Nov. 23 around 1 a.m., my wife and I were in bed asleep, when Beth woke up stating she had heard something. Beth went to the front door and heard voices. She then got me up and we went to the back door and heard male and female voice calling for help. A car hand wrecked off of State Route 7, behind our home.
She attempted to call 911 with her cell phone and got Cabell County and was told to call a different number. Yes, they hung up, and we called back on another phone, and I said the number out loud while she placed the call for help. We then went to the area we heard the voices and found two males and one female, standing on the end of Raccoon Road. One of the males had been hurt bad in the car wreck. After finding out no one else was in the wrecked car and getting two of the people involved in the wreck to sit down, Beth went back to our home and got a blanket for the more injured man who was bleeding and stating how cold he was. I assessed him, and he was still oriented to name, place, and year. He had multiple lacerations on head and one on knee.
My wife and I kept talking to the individuals until the volunteer fire department and sheriff showed up. I told one of the deputies what had happened. From that point on, we just watch for awhile then went back home. We were both surprised by the people that would slowly drive by and look but not stop and help out before the actual help arrived. I just wanted to let you know how my wife helped get these people the help and care they needed. She works as a RN in ICU at Holzer Medical Center. Thank you for letting me share her story.
