Bad Car Crashes

TAMPA, Fla., – Every day there is slow but steady progress in the recovery of River Ross, a 6-year-old boy recovering from a bad car crash last month near his home in Manatee County.River recently awoke from a coma, and is now receiving physical and speech therapy at the Children's Medical Center at Tampa General Hospital. His father, a firefighter in Manatee County, has been by his son's side for nearly every minute of the recovery process.”If I stop to think about what's going on it is really scary,” explains Brian Ross to ABC Action News. “It's just been a long blur of getting to that next moment. First it was him opening his eyes, we got there. Then its smile recognition, we got there. Then it's talking. Now we're sitting up throwing bean bags,” says Ross after another morning physical therapy session. “I really try very hard not to dwell on where we're at and focus on where we're going. It's the only way I've been able to get through this.”Also helping, is the community's support.His colleagues at the fire station in southern Manatee County have helped cover his time away from work, and started a Go Fund Me account that has exploded in popularity. As of February 12, about $25,000 has been raised, and thousands have seen updates on a Facebook page they made for the community to follow along.”All the support that we've got from the community and through the work place I've been able to sit in here and focus on nothing but River,” says Brian Ross. “I don't have words to convey how grateful we are. It's something we would never have dreamed of asking for, much less receiving. It puts us at a loss for words.”Ross's wife was driving in January when she lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a tree. She suffered several broken bones, but River Ross hit his head, fracturing his skull, and causing brain injury. “I was on shift ” says Ross. And even though, as a firefighter, he's responded to numerous injury-crashes, “nothing can prepare you for when its yours,” he says.”You see something happen on the job you know what to do and you do it. In most cases you don't really think about it. When its your child, that all goes out the door. It was like, what do I do?””It's never bothered me before helping transport a patient into a hospital room and seeing all the people surround him and working but I think it was that much scarier when I saw that. Like, wow. Because I know what this means.

Bad Car Crashes

On Saturday morning two buddies working together in a company in Yaroslavl came to work still high from yesterday’s drinking marathon. Their boss refused to admit them to work, telling both to go home and sleep it off.Instead of using public transport, the couple got into an old Toyota Corolla and started to drive homeward.The 36-year-old driver made no allowance for his condition and after some time of reckless driving and speeding crashed right into the front of a small bus carrying some 20 passengers. The crash happened downtown on the Dobryninsky Bridge.The bus sustained considerable damage, though the passengers remained luckily unhurt. The 33-year-old passenger in the car was killed. The rear part of Toyota Corolla was actually torn off the chassis.The driver of the car was so drunk, so scared or both that he opted not to stop and drove more than 5km more down the road, eventually colliding with a Subaru at a crossroad.Witnesses to the accident were shocked at the scene of a pile of scrap continuing on its way and phoned police to make the zombie vehicle stop. Vigilant citizens made a number of calls reporting of demolished car’s progress. Finally, police arrested the driver in a courtyard further down the road where the man drove to abandon the remnants of the vehicle.Police officers found that the man was so drunk he could barely walk, let alone to drive a car. The body of his unfortunate friend was extracted from the debris of the ruined vehicle.The driver was toxicologically examined, interrogated, but later on he was allowed to go home because a sobering-up center in Yaroslavl no longer exists, Life News reported. Later, a court ordered the man be arrested for 15 days and stripped him of his driving license for a year-and-a-half. If the driver’s fault in the passenger’s death is proven it could result in a prison sentence for up to seven years.Still, what really bewildered experienced police officers was the remains of the car, which continued to drive despite looking like a pile of metal scraps, with reportedly only one detail remaining fully intact – the driver’s seat.Screenshot from youtube.com @PoliceYaroslavlScreenshot from youtube.com @PoliceYaroslavl
