5 injured in 2-vehicle crash in Escondido

Good Samaritans help save lives and make the world a better place. That's certainly the case in this instance where a two-vehicle collision could have resulted in fatal injuries.

According to a story out of Escondido, it was a United States Postal Service carrier who heard a crash at around 4:00 p.m. at the intersection of Lincoln Avenue and Harding Street. Witnesses there ran to help three people who were in a Ford Ranger, and the mail carrier ran to the other vehicle, a Volkswagen.

Inside the Volkswagen, there were two people, a 19-year-old man and 20-year-old woman, who he pulled to safety. Shortly after getting them out of the vehicle, it burst into flames.

The man was honored for his efforts in saving the lives of the two people. The three people in the Ford Ranger, an 18-year-old man, 17-year-old man and 11-year-old girl, were also rescued successfully.

Police reported that the 20-year-old woman suffered the worst injuries, but she is recovering well despite life-threatening injuries. All five victims went to the hospital following the collision.

In crashes like these, every second counts. It was fortunate that witnesses were able to help the victims and get them the medical care they needed as quickly as they did. It's a reality that witnesses often save people's lives and have the most significant role in helping those who have been injured in car crashes.

If you're hurt in a case like this, remember that the driver who is at fault should be held liable. Do your best to recover, and allow your attorney to take care of the legal responsibilities.
