To The Herald-Whig:

On Thursday, Aug. 4, we were involved in a two-vehicle accident at 18th and Spruce.

There were three other motorists who witnessed the accident, stopped and stayed to give a statement to police. We did not get names but we want them to know how much we appreciated their help. Several neighbors also came to offer assistance and we wish to thank them also.

The medical, fire and police units were all very professional in their duties and very helpful and caring.

The caption below the picture in the Aug. 5 paper stated we were not wearing seat belts. This is incorrect. There are stomach bruises and a subsequent visit to the hospital because of the seat belts.

Again thanks to all the caring citizens who expressed their concern for my wife and me and offered their assistance.
