I was on the E-Line Bus traveling south 2-Seattle w/my Wife "Hannah-G" when we came up-2 the stop lite on Aurora & 155th we noticed a serious car accident. And seen a female Transit fare enforcement officer trying to pull open the drivers door of the vehicle @ fault 4-crash so I ran 2-front of the bus & told bus driver 2-let me off 2-help. I got off ran over & helped the fare-enforcement officer get the door-open after opening the door I personally got the driver of the vehicle leg & foot unstuck from being wedged between the seat and dash from the front-end of vehicle basically sitting on his lap. After that I helped drag him out of vehicle & lay him down on-2 the ground a "lady" was on the phone w/a 911-operator describing the drivers injury to his leg and was told to get some kind of cloth or something & cover-up the wound so I took off my new white T-shirt & covered the wound-up. He had a softball size hole basically on his left-leg which was broken also @ the shen literally. I got out 2-help cause my wife & I both were in a car accident in November-2016 where we both were lucky to walk away with minimal injurys & when I seen that accident I had a flash back n thought that could of been my wife & I.......
