Speaking of CNN and Ted Turner, did you happen to see the high speed chase
by the California Highway Patrol last Thursday, February 19th that ended in
a crash at 60 to 70 miles per hour when the speeding car ran through an
intersection? The person in the white was my brother-in-law, Joseph
McCarley. He was airlifted to the emergency trauma hospital, Scripps
Memorial Hospital, in LaJolla, California with broken ribs, broken nose,
crushed cheekbone (which had to be operated on to place a titanium plate
beneath his right eyeball to hold it up and several screws in the skull
above the right eyebrow). Fortunately, he will be OK. It was, however, one
of the most horrible crash I've ever seen and it was covered for a total of
about 45 minutes by two television helicopter cameramen. At times the
speeding car exceeded 120 miles per hour.
Of course it was shown on all the television stations here in Southern
California and we have had telephone calls from all over the United States,
England, Japan, etc. where people saw it on CNN.
My brother-in-law came home from the hospital yesterday afternoon and will
be OK. He is still in a lot of pain and probably will be for some time to
come. Thankfully, he survived the terrible crash.
