This type of driving isn't uncommon on highway 93 between Boulder and Golden. It's scary going most days and people need to get a grip. Saving 2 minutes isn't worth it. If you try to drive under 60 (it's 55 mph) you get run off the road.

I was there helping at that accident within just a few minutes of it happening. It was very sad and very scary. The driver of the Sebring was not thrown from his vehicle as stated in the article - another driver who stopped immediately helped to remove him from his vehicle. And the car did not immediately burst into flames, a small fire started underneath to which several people emptied their fire extinguishers on it keeping it small and contained as best they could while others worked to remove the driver from the SUV before the Sebring did burst into total flames. A man in a white pickup used a tow rope and pulled the SUV's door open so the man in the SUV could be removed by the people who were trying to help him. After he was removed the Sebring then burst into flames. After all this, the emergency vehicles showed up. They did a great job from there on out. God was there taking care of all these people. Anyone who was there and saw the damage to those cars, especially the little white car, should be able to see that. I am soooo thankful no one was hurt any worse and my prayers continue to go out to all 4 people who were injured. Yes, the driver of the white car was injured also, just not to the point of needing hospital care.

I just want to add there were numerous people who assisted in this terrible accident. Many could not do anything to help but stand and watch but there were really no "looky-loo's" who were just curious. Alot of people did what they could to help - and to the nurse who ran to help, THANK YOU.

DnR - I noticed in your two posts you described what others were doing to help the victims and even the jerk-off that caused the accident, but you left out what you did. I just wanted you to know I found that refreshing and admirable. Too many times in situations like these, you hear a lot of "I did this" and "I did that", "I" "I" "I"...So give yourself a pat on the back for stopping to help your fellow man!

It really was heartwarming to see so many people rush to help. My friend was in the silver SUV that was side swiped, and everyone pitched in to help get him out. I wish I could personally thank each and every one of you, but this will have to do. Thank you all so much.

This guy should have his ass nailed to the wall. How sad this is. It is a miracle that everyone came out alive. To all the family that had injuries as a result of this foolish guy I am sorry. To the guy that caused this, its time to grow up and get your act together. This offense deserves some serious jail time. I sure hope fox follows up on this story to let everyone know that he is going to pay for his recklessness.

To those of you condemning the guy that cuassed the accident. You all need to look at yoursleves and ask why you feel that need to judge anyone. You do not know what was going through his mind or for that matter in his life. I happen to know who this guy is and he is one hell of a nice guy, who will pay for his lapse in judgement. He screwed up big time, yeah, but you all are not the ones that can judge him or anyone else for that matter. Try saying a prayer for him and all the others that were involved. Keep in mind he does have family who care for him deeply, and I'm sure would be hurt reading your ignorant and harsh words. You might want to keep them in your prayers as well. Stop the judging and replace it with a prayer!!!!

I am praying that he is held accountable for his action to the fullest extent of the law.

I was also there, one of the first on scene, working on keeping the fire under control so they could get the drivers out and away from the fire.
Please put a fire extinguisher in your car. The ones we used were small and ultimately ineffective in putting out the fire, but it bought us just enough time to move the victims away from the car before it become completely engulfed. I shudder to think what would have happened without them (and a huge thanks to the Pioneer front-end loader driver who gave me his extinguisher). Thanks everyone for assisting. It was amazing the number of people who jumped right in to help.

ok for everyone who speaks badly of the person who caused the crash you might wanna realize none of us are perfect!! this guy is probably a great guy, he's probably someone that supports his family. maybe he runs marathons too. point is YOUR NOT PERFECT. and maybe your mistakes weren't the same or televised but just because his were doesn't make it fair to nail him to a cross. and he is hurt too and as we all know believe half of what you see and none of what you hear. your in my thoughts as well as the other people involved.

I would first like to say I send out my thoughts and prayers to those that were involved in the accident, I pray for a fast and full recovery. I would like to thank all of the guardian angels who helped out. I would also like to thank the person who pulled my cousin out the car even being that he was the one who caused it. My heart breaks to know that he made a huge mistake and bad judgment. He does have a heart of gold and would give the shirt off his back if needed. He will be held accountable for actions and will have to deal with the consequences that’s a given. EVERYONE needs to use common sense whenever you’re behind the wheel…Drinking, Speeding, Texting and or Talking on your cell. You’re time “chancing it” may have the same outcome and or worse.

My son was in the little white car with his girlfriend. I too would like to say thank you to all who stopped to help and were so quick in thinking. By the grace of God they are all alive. Anna, I have met your brother and your mom. Great family! If you see Robert, who was in the SUV with your brother, please tell him thanks for the hug in the surgery waiting room Monday night. It was very theraputic and healing for me. I continue to pray for everyones full recovery.

I appreciate all the prayers & kind words many of you have said about this accident.I'm also internally grateful for those that had stopped. My name is Jessica & i was the passenger of the white car that pretty much was demolished after the drunk hit it. As for the people who are defending the drunk & saying this man is a saint.. you are very sadly mistaken because his actions not only almost killed not just me but four people. He also ran after being checked out in the hospital- great citizen there you speak of! psshh My pelvis is broken in 9 places (most breaks in Colorado records), 22 brakes in my foot & ankle, my right hip, and right wrist. The SUV driver suffers from brain injury as well as other injuries as well. So if you are stupid enough to do what this driver did you bet he will get the hardest punishment possible.. so say your goodbyes soon because his going to prison pronto! Also the news will do a follow up for those of you wonderful caring people out there that want an update on this.
