Good Samaritans were great

Good Samaritans were greatDear Editor:Thank you to everyone who helped me after my bike accident on Snowmass Creek Road on July 9.First, special thanks to the good Samaritans who stopped and called 911, directed traffic and stabilized me. I was literally lying in the middle of the road in shock.Thank you to the Basalt EMTs, who were so gentle, and to the Aspen ER doctors and nurses. I was especially happy to see the two Colorado State Patrol officers who personally delivered the accident information form.I broke my collarbone in three places, but Dr. Liotta screwed it back together, and I hope to be back on my bike before too long. I really appreciate everyone who went out of their way to give me their time.Helen CarlsenBasalt
