If you get more than killed.

Last week, there was an accident involving two fire trucks. One person witnessing the wreck had this to say,

"It was such a loud bang that I thought someone must have gotten killed or more than (that). It was a huge bang. I'm amazed that they're OK. I really am," she said.

Um. How do you get more than killed? What exactly happens when you are more than killed? I am so confused.

And, obviously, I hope everyone injured recovers fully. Thank goodness no one was more than killed.

I am just glad my favorite coffee house did not get creamed in that wreck. It is right at that intersection. Oh, and I am glad no one was killed, too...

lol...hmmm, I imagine thr person who said that is highly educated. I really feel for the injured people but my heart also goes out to the firefighter driving the firetruck...gosh, he was a month from retirement...and he could lose his whole pension he's worked 30+ years for...not to say he should have ran the redlight, it's just I know how hard these guys work and how hard they're criticized for everything they do...=(

Seriously, they were racing to what they thought was a fire. It was like he was driving drunk, he made a mistake. Accidents are just that accidents. If that man loses his pension over that I think people should protest.

Uh. I meant to say "it wasn't like he was drunk." Oops.

Exactly...an accident. Sad thing is...it was a false alarm. There wasnt a fire at all in the apartment complex they were heading to. I told my husband he better freaking stop and wait until the light turns green from now on when he's driving the firetruck because I will be pissed off if he loses his pension. lol The lady in the car is going to be lawsuit happy. She's already parading her story around the newspapers.
