What Would You DIo?

Imagine this. You are driving on a road at a remote country side. The scenery was nice and calm and there was no other traffic on both ways even though it was in a middle of a bright sunny day. Suddenly up ahead you saw a car that was wrecked by an accident. As you got closer, you could see that the accident had just happened and from your observation, the car had hit a telecommunication pole. May be one of the tires had exploded and sent the car out of control towards the pole. As you are passing by the ill fated car, you could see that the driver is still there slumped at the steering wheel. He or she could be unconscious or could even be dead. The only way to find out is to stop and check it out for yourself. You reach out for your phone and you found that you have forgotten to charge the battery and now it is dead. So you can't make any call to anybody... Now, do you stop and check on the driver? Remember that it is quite a lonely road where not that many people drive by. You can never know when the next vehicle will be passing by. Or, do you just drive on and hoping that someone else would come by and take a look at the accident victim? What do you do under this situation? It would be interesting to see how different people will approach or will do under this situation. Hopefully you can provide me with your honest feedback so that we can share some ideas on what is the best way to handle such situation. Looking forward to your input. Thanks!

I would have to stop. It's the only right thing to do. I'v been in a car accident once when my dad and I was going to get grocries and we had 2 people stop. People who stop have a good heart. With me I always have a cell phone or my hubby has his and one of them are always charged. So we are prepared for whatever could happen. The way I see it treat others the way you would want to be treated. Thank you and Happy Mylotting
