It's soooooooooo nice to hear that there are still good people out there. He put himself at risk when he could have just gone along. I know it wasn't my family but thank you.

I have a class A CDL and have driven many tractor-trailers/big trucks. The driver who hit them is a piece of [email protected], he saw them and knew he hit them. When you are up high you see everything. Is what gets me the Highway Patrol wrote him a citation and let him go on down the road. Uh why????? I hope the best for the victims and they need to sue the pants off the truck driver and his insurance leaving him with maybe the clothes on his back. I thought leaving the scene of an accident was a felony?

I'm in disbelief....the semi driver was only cited for a couple of minor infractions and then allowed to continue on his way?!?!? I'm appalled, astounded, and would like to know the name of the Oklahoma Trooper that "investigated" that. Was the driver of the truck given a drug test? Did the trooper look for evidence of collision on the truck?
May God bless the victims and also Shane Ward for his quick thinking and actions. He is a true hero.

Isn't hit and run with injury a felony? Why was this idiot free to go? If it were me, I'd still be in the slammer. Wow!!!

I am not the guy to judge if he knew he hit them or not but I would think it is time to crack down and make laws a little more strict on the drivers ( all of them) log books, i think so many truckers are driving so many hours now just to make ends meet they need to crack down on this issue. Glad everyone is alive and recovering.

Shane,
you may be just a regular person in your own mind but you did something udderly incredible. You are truly a hero. A lot of people would have stopped and stared and not done a thing but you, being the decent person you are, you saved 3 lives. God Bless you for your integrity.

As far as the truck driver, I hope that the Caddo County district attorney gives you the punishment that you so truly deserve. You knew you hit those women. God does not like ugly and you sir were extremely ugly in your choice of leaving. May you lose your license forever so no one else may end up being killed by your inability to operate a truck safely.

Thank you, Shane. It's people like you who always remind me that the world is still full of good people and not just the bad we hear of so often. I know that you did what is right and probably didn't think of yourself first, just reacted to save someone else. That is what makes you special. The tears in your voice on the video, and in the voices of Sylvia and her mom really touced my heart and make it real to all of us. I would like to think that I would have done the same thing in that situation, I hope I never have to find out. Thanks for being a hero, and I know your wife and children must be very proud. I wish your family and Sylvia's family all the best. Sylvia, that hand was the hand of God, working thru one of his children. Never forget that, you have been saved for a reason, and you are special. You are the blessed and loved of God.
I have always been proud of our state troopers. They have been most helpful to me on a couple of occasions, and the only complaints I have had about them, well, I earned the tickets. That said, why wasn't the driver arrested, drug tested, and held on bond? For such a careless decision, I think the driver and the trooper should both be drug tested and punished in some form for lack of character and poor judgement. If not for a miracle and the direct intervention of a hero, this would have been triple vehicular homicide. Gratefully, it wasn't. The fact remains that three souls were left for dead but survived to fulfill their lives. The fact that they survived should not negate the responsibilty of the driver who did this, nor should it alieve responsibility for public safety from the trooper who choose to let him continue to drive. Both of them should be held accountable for these decisions.
Were there any animals in the horse trailer? If so, it doesn't look as if they would have survived. Please be certain to add charges and fines that will be appropriate for the loss of their lives.
Thanks for letting me comment on this,
Mr. L

I passed by this accident awhile after it had happened and was later very relieved to find out that everyone had survived. All I saw was the overturned and smoldering vehicle and the mangled horse trailer.
I had also heard that there was a subsequent accident at that location of a car that had stopped for the accident, and when it pulled back onto the highway was hit by another semi and there were two small children in the car, who also all survived. There are more details on the wreck here: topix.con/city/weatherford-ok. It is under the topic "Wreck on I-40 today July 11 2010."

Shane, you are one of a kind. People like you are few and far between. This story truly makes me want to strive to be a much better person.

Amen...I've written essays on that very subject and the bible beaters are the first to indicate they don't give a damn.

My husbands sister was one of the 'aunts' involved in this accident. He and my daughter went to see her today. Incredibly, she remembers so many details from the accident. She is upbeat and happy to be alive. To hear her tell their story certainly brings chills down your spine! We are so grateful to Shane to have done such a selfless act that allows us to hold on to our family member and friends!
As for the truck driver and law enforcement, I do not understand this trend of citing them and letting them go?! Thank you God for this miracle gift!

You do know ... that was meant to show what an evil and idiotic book the Bible is? All of those commands really are in that book, but beLIEvers pick and choose which parts they beLIEve.
