I witnessed the whole thing from my window and ran outside to help because I am a licensed emt. The woman hit was in critical condition. The second car that struck the explorer after the explorer had hit the woman had a nice woman driving with 2 young children. Thankfully they were ok with no injuries. Prayers go out to the woman fighting for her life.
