Good Samaritans Reach Out to Mourning Family After Car Accident
In the midst of every tragedy, you will always find people who are trying to help make things better. This uplifting truth is reaffirmed through a recent story involving our clients and the Good Samaritans that tried to help them after a deadly car accident.
Travis and Bailey were driving home from a holiday getaway in Tahoe. The wintry season had put snow in the air, frost on windshields, and black ice on the roads. After Travis’s vehicle hit an invisible patch of black ice, he lost control of the vehicle, causing it to fall more than 100 feet down a steep incline. Travis and Bailey both suffered severe injuries but the couple’s 11-year old boy passed away.
After the accident and in the middle of frigid weather conditions, passersby pulled over and attempted a rescue. A total of 11 people stopped and risked their own health to do what they could for our clients and their family; it has been reported that all 11 people developed signs of hypothermia by the time emergency response crews arrived on scene. One of the Good Samaritans has recently reached out to Bailey to share her condolences and to send a warming reminder that they are not alone in their recovery.
It is always uplifting to hear about good people doing good deeds in the face of the worst of circumstances. This is a sentiment we hold dearly to our hearts here at Del Rio & Carichoff, P.C., and we would like to take this time to extend our gratitude to all the people who helped our clients after their deadly car accident.
