Well let's get the facts straight !!!
Maria was going up Hawthorne Boulevard at a very high rate of speed ( not down ) just passed Rollinghills Road she started fishtailing
back-and-forth causing the back left side of her car to hit the center divider and she lost control and crashed !! Dawna was first on scene before her boyfriend who came speeding up behind her and it was Dawna that was first to call 911
BECAUSE THE BOYFRIEND HAD NO PHONE
Dawna then with Maria's boyfriend tried effortlessly to wake her up and remove her from the vehicle . Donna noticed a small fire starting under the hood of her car and started throwing dirt in effort to extinguish the fire and then she and Maria's boyfriend ran back to my car to grab all of the water bottles trying to extinguish the fire . Dawna's Jeans were torn at the knees which were bleeding from the relentless effort to help extinguish the flames and at the same time help the boyfriend try to get Maria from the car
And as other people arrived on looking refusing to help she never stopped even at her the threat of fire and disregarding her own pain she was there for Maria until the police came and got her out of the car !! If it wouldn't of been for Dawna and her cell phone calling 911 the moment the accident happened saved her life five minutes longer car would've burnt down with her still unconscious and in the vehicle !! IN MY EYES DAWNA IS A HERO
AND SHE WAS THE FIRST TO CALL 911 FACT AND END OF COMMENT
