Patients who witnessed the crash said it sounded like a bomb blast, describing a “big bang”, “a lot of chaos” and a shaking building.
“I saw the car crash through the window. He dipped the patients,’ one patient said A-Z family. “It felt like an explosion. It didn’t look like a car accident, it looked like a bomb. Boom boom boom.’
Another patient, Anthony Rader, said he was only inches from the crash site.
“I was watching my television and suddenly I see the car burst through the window, pushing three people all the way to the back. It came out of nowhere,” he said.
“I’m freaking out a bit myself,” Rader added. “If I hadn’t arrived early, I would have been number four. I was supposed to sit on this side and I arrived early.
