  1. I was just on my way to the civic center for the debates..looking into my car trunk heard the slide of a vehicle the sound of the impact …looking over the fence witnessed the van rolling over. I could see the faces of those in the van. Ran back into the store to call for fire, police and ambulance…by the time I had come back out I could hear the sirens and witnessed the crowd of rescuers in action.
    Glad to know everyone is okay. Thank you to all those that came to the rescue. Good to know and see that in a moment of crisis there are hero’s among us!
