    I was sitting on my couch watching tv when I heard a car speeding down the road and as I said to myself "wow they need to slow down" I heard a loud "crunch" sound and I said to my fiance oh my God they hit something! I saw this out my back porch as people from acros the street ran over to help and I heard someone yell for water. Then soon after the police and fire trucks and ambulances arrived, this mess went on all night I knew it had to been serious. I hope everyone surives this. My prayers are with them and their friends and families.
