Jolanda Jones to the Rescue

I was driving along the Westpark Tollroad this afternoon, when I noticed that there were numerous pylons along the raised exit that merges it into Highway 59. I figured there had probably been an accident over the weekend, but didn't give it much thought otherwise.

Imagine my surprise this evening when I was watching Fox 26 and saw this story explaining what had happened there.

A few days ago, I wrote that my friend, Jolanda was a conflict addict. At the time, I didn't realize that the Conflict Addiction included running into a burning car!

A lot of us wonder what we would do if faced with a situation like the one Jolanda and her son were faced with over the weekend. I know we would all like to think we would have done the same thing. But, I guess until we have a burning car with someone trapped in it sitting right in front of us, we will never know how we would perform.

I know that Jolanda gets a lot of flack for the things she says and the things she does, but on this day, her actions spoke a lot louder than her words.

Way to go, Jolanda!

Very impressive.....sheds a new light on Jolanda.

I agree, she did a hell of a job. However there were other people out there who deserve an "atta boy" as well and it bothers me that they weren't mentioned other than "good Samaritan."

I mean, let's be fair here.

Never met the woman, and haven't been impressed with what I've read, heard (directly or indirectly). Having said all that, my reaction was the same as yours when I heard the news this weekend. Way to go!
