Well taken care of after accident

I would like to make a long overdue thank-you to the first people who called 911 and checked on the drivers and passengers.

On Sept. 2, I was in a car accident on Despard Avenue outside of the Oceanside Health Centre. I would like to make a long overdue thank-you to the first attending people and witnesses who called 911 and checked on the drivers and passengers.

From my standpoint of confusion, everybody worked together like a well-oiled machine. Everybody was so kind, professional and comforting. Thank-you to the ambulance paramedics, Barry and Sir Ed. You were comforting, confident and dealt with my shock well and with a good sense of humour. Humour is what keeps me from panicking.

To the attending policeman, thank-you for all your attention and making my husband feel better. (My husband decided to walk home after work and just happened upon our accident). To the tow truck driver, thank-you for letting me know the next processes concerning my car. You were so friendly and informative.

And to the urgent care doctors and nurses, thank-you for your patience and kindness. To the gentleman in the other car, thank-you for your due diligence calling in. I hope you are well.

To sum it up, this experience was scary, but these people made it a lot easier to deal with. I was able to focus on my daughter and myself instead of the process. We were so very well taken care of.
