From the looks of it, His wheelchair got too much downhill speed and momentum and he didn't have any time to react to the pothole that lied in his path, So he ate it pretty good. Had a concussion and cut to his forehead. Long story short, I loaded all his stuff into my truck and drove him to Memorial a few miles away.

I pray to God that I never get hurt or need someones assistance, Because it seems like all those people are gone.
Geez...thats terrible. I can't believe that many people would just drive right by a man laying in the street! They could see that he was obviously disabled as they were swerving around his wheelchair.

I'm glad you blocked the street while you helped him, I would have too. I'll bet none of the people behind you would have stopped either.

But you know, in this world people don't care about other people anymore. Most people are in such a hurry these days that they feel they don't have time to stop and help someone out, in this world of fast food, microwave popcorn and minute rice.

I try and help people like this, who are in need of genuine help, becuase there is not enough nice people. I saw a guy who crashed his car when I was on my bike the other day into some idiot in his 40's who was doing 60 in a 30 and swerved to avoid something.. I made sure he was all right and called the cops.
