Every now and then, we come across to know about different accidents.
There are some stories that are just so chilling that we can’t imagine what would happen if we were in the same situation.
This is certainly true when we hear of any story involving car crashes.
Accidents involving cars are also common to encounter as many flammable matters are present inside every car including fuel.
Today’s story is a terrible car crash witnessed in Colorado on Jan 12.
This would certainly be a reminder of how terrible a car crash can be.
The near-fatal accident in question occurred when Christine Olson was on her way down Route 34.
The 35-year-old had no idea what type of experience she was about to endure.
As she was driving, she noticed that her car was experiencing trouble.
She came to a stop and put on her hazard lights.
While Christine did all the right things, she couldn’t account for everything that was about to happen.
Jordan Persichitte, driver of another vehicle behind Oslon, driving at 65 mph.
While this speed is tame for the highway, as she was pulling up behind Olson’s stopped car, the sheer speed alone could have been deadly upon impact.
Persichetti’s airbags exploded in her face due to collision with Olson’s car.
As Persichitte tried to determine what was going on, the force of the impact had sent Olson’s vehicle careening into the intersection.
Thankfully, Brett Riemenschneider was there to step in and save a life.
While most people don’t think to run to a burning vehicle, Riemenschneider knew he had to take immediate action.
Riemenschneider, being a kind-hearted human being, was not able to see the whole can burning up with flames and he started rescuing the driver, who was stuck inside the car.
He ran out of his vehicle to Olson’s car.
Suddenly, two other men sprang onto the scene as they raced against the clock to free Olson.
He started smashing his hand in the car’s window in order to unlock the door and save a life.
She was sent to the ICU at Swedish Medical Centre in Englewood.
While she was in critical condition, her family was grateful she was alive.
Riemenschneider was changed forever by the event as well.
While he doesn’t see himself as a hero, he knows that every person’s life has value–that day was just a day where he reached out just as any other good person should.
He said, “I tried to put on the tough dad’s face for my kids.
As soon as I got to the bathroom and my mom started picking pieces of glass out of my hand, I just kind of broke down.
Like, full-on sobbed like a baby for an hour.”
