Sunday night my DH, DD, Friends DD, and I were driving home from a day at the lake when we were the 3rd or 4th car to arrive at an accident. An SUV had hit a motorcycle head-on. I stayed in the car with the kids and my husband jumped out to see if he could help. It was really bad, and the lady that was on the bike died at the scene. Her husband was either following her or in front of her on his own bike and was not injured but obviously very upset. Apparently the driver of the SUV was drunk and crossed into the other lane, he was arrested for Homicide and DUI. Neither my husband nor I had ever been in a situation like this and it is all I have been able the think about since it happened (dreams and all). I thought my husband was handling it okay, but last night he came home from work and was very upset. He is thinking back to every moment and going over things he should have done to help her, and he is planning for us both to take CPR and First Response classes (which I think are a good idea anyway). Please pray for this woman’s family and friends and that she rests in peace. Please also pray that my husband can get past regretful thoughts and see that he did everything he could do.
