>> PHOTOS: RTA bus crash involves multiple injuries
6 medics called to Harrison Township crash
Multiple injuries were reported as a result of the crash, leaving two children, who were transported to Children’s Medical Center, with life threatening injuries.
Ha’Neisha Wortham said she was among several people who helped injured passengers out of the Cadillac that sustained extensive damage in the wreck.
Then she went inside a nearby KFC where bystanders took the two boys involved in the crash while they waited for medics.
“They barely could breathe, maybe a deep breath every couple seconds, so I was just coaxing the kids, telling them everything was going to be OK,” Wortham said.
Emotions were high, with employees at the KFC even in tears, she said.
“All I could do was cry, honestly, because my heart hurts for those kids.”
The driver of the Cadillac was transported to Grandview Medical Center and the front passenger was transported to Miami Valley Hospital, both with serious injuries. The injured children were also in the Cadillac.
The RTA bus driver, the driver one of the vehicles, and a passenger were taken to area hospitals with non-life threatening injuries.
The crash remains under investigation by the Montgomery Count Sheriff’s Office Traffic Services Unit.
