I arrived as the pedestrian was being loaded into the ambulance where he was transported to a nearby school field to meet the helicopter to take him to a trauma center. His injuries were described by the police as a ruptured spleen, fractures in the bones of his lower body and contusions. Looking at the pickup I think he is lucky to be alive in any condition.
The one scene I wrestled with photographing at the crash was the driver. I watched as he sat on the sidewalk near his truck looking overwhelmed by the event. I don't think either man will be the same after today's crash regardless of who is found to be at fault.
