EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -
They were in the right place at the right time to help those hurt in an accident on Saturday on the Lloyd Expressway.
Four cars were involved in the accident, but luckily no one was severely hurt. Fire and police officials tell 14 News that some nearby soldiers are to thank for that.
At about 2:30 p.m. Saturday afternoon, soldiers at the Evansville National Guard Armory were conducting an artillery drill when the four vehicles collided nearby.
"I was behind the tent, at the time. Whenever they called, 'medic,' I just come running in the direction I heard it," Sgt. Dennis Barnett, of the National Guard, said.
Police say the drivers of the vehicles were distracted by the drill, and that a chain-reaction lead to each car's involvement.
Sgt. Barnett says he heard the accident and that he and 22 of his fellow soldiers quickly reacted.
"The majority of the wreck was maintained by the military. They did a basic first response on the patients in the vehicles,"District Chief Mark Mastison said.
"Once we crossed the fence, we heard one medic on scene. We got the patients triaged correctly and swiftly. We got the help from the other personnel here to, you know, hold C-spine, things like that," Sgt. Barnett said. "Honestly, it was a very quick response. They were there in a very timely fashion and conducted themselves professionally."
Chief Mastison says the soldiers' help is greatly appreciated, as they kept injuries from getting any worse than they were. Two people were taken to Deaconess Hospital with just minor injuries.
"I, once again, would like to thank the military for their hard work," Chief Mastison said.
"I'm glad that we were so close, that we could get there in a timely fashion, as quick as they did. But again, it's just kind of our job," Sgt. Barnett said.
Police and fire officials were not able to comment on exactly what caused the accident, other than that the drivers were distracted.
If this accident happened on any other day this month, those soldiers would not have been there to help.
