I was following behind a large truck when the driver seemed the lose control & drive through a lamp post then smash along a wall which as I was right behind. It was a bit scary avoiding the power lines and falling lamp post etc. I jumped out of my car thinking what happened there? I guessed the driver had a heart attack or something alike anyway thanks to the St John First Aid Course I had done years before I was able to help him by just doing what the insructor had shown us and work out he needed CPR which I did untill St John got there. It was super intense for sure but a good feeling to be able to do some thing and it inspired me to become a volunteer at my local station which is very rewarding.
