Unless the car is on fire or underwater, you should never, ever, ever move someone who has been in a car accident. It might have been nice to tell them to stay calm and help was on the way, but other than that there's not much he could do.

They wouldn't necessarily have to -move- the guy; at least go over there and assess the damage - see if he's even alive and let the guys in the car know someone would be helping (as you said).

Even knowing that someone's helping could soothe the panic/shock.

Agreed.

Of course, they only showed what happened 30 seconds after the collision. I'm sure the heroics ensued promptly after that :)

:) I know what you're saying, but I was still like --GO OVER THERE-- screaming at my WMP. :)

uhm, that car got plowed right into the driver's side door. I would guess that the driver is dead.

dead?

At that speed, yes. I've seen a few accidents on ambulance rides, and the way that car got hit I can imagine there is a very small chance the driver of the car that got T-Boned survived. The car got hit on the place where there is literally the least amount of metal between you and the outside, and most cars dont have an airbag or anything in the door.

With any luck. Anyone that pulls out in front of a vehicle moving that fast gets what's comming to them. With any luck, they survived, but they're impotent or something.

Who votes this was an Asian Driver in the red car? And it was some hard-working american trying to get home to his family in the truck? Do you hate America now? Why don't you just join the middle east!

My thoughts exactly. Your on-air presence becomes lower on the priority list when someone could be dying in the car - especially the car that got broadsided.

Jesus.

Maybe there were other crew running over to help that we just didn't see.

well if you watch the video he gets almsot creamed by the red car himself, and as he doesnt get up and go stand in front of the cars and gives his report like most reporters do i think he was fucked up as well. I mean listen to his voice as he is reporting, i dont think he ran over there cuase he couldnt. Also you can see the guy get out of the truck, and as it was a live broadcast you can bet the news producer or whoever called the police and stuff.

Oo, I didn't see the guy get out of the truck. And hell yeah, I BET the reporter was scared shitless. He probably didn't run over there 'cause his pants were soiled.
kalthrax From: kalthrax Date: September 17th, 2004 04:14 pm (UTC) (Link)
lol yeah im sure he did :)

Yeah...you think they would have done something...

*the part they cut off*

"...oh my god, there is a child lying in the road...oh no...a bus full of nuns is coming and I think it's going to hit him. No! They swerved to avoid him and collided with that car...there is more smoke now...Oh Geeze! The bus just exploded and everyone just died in a fiery death because I was too busy talking to get that kid out of the street....."
