What a night last week in Southern Minnesota. A night of multiple motor vehicle accidents and the need for immediate medical emergency responses. The Rochester Post Bulletin had the time line recently:
• At 3:21 p.m., a tour bus carrying 22 people crashes on Interstate 90, killing two people and injuring 20.
• At 5:15 p.m., a school bus carrying 22 students from Wabasha-Kellogg High School collided with a car on U.S. 63 North in Rochester, injuring eight students and seriously injuring the car’s driver and passenger.
• Minutes later, an ambulance that was headed to the scene of the school bus crash was involved in a four-vehicle accident on Second Street Southwest. Two people were injured and had to be extricated from their vehicles.
• About 7:30 p.m. at Church of the Savior in southeast Rochester, a vehicle struck a pedestrian, then slammed into the church.
Four separate significance incidents, within four hours, all of which required quick responses. There was a need for police, sheriffs, troopers, firefighters, ambulance crews and helicopter personnel. There also the vital requirement of hospital and emergency room personnel . What a test for even a much larger area. It sounds like the test was not only met , but that it was exceeded in it’s expectations.
I often talk to clients that will point out the difference that the emergency personal made. When I get the chance I thank these individuals for their past and future service. Hopefully, everyone will do that.
