The Accident

via Daily Prompt: Panicked

He panicked, driving the car over the ankle of his passenger as she exited the vehicle. Screaming in agony, she begged him to stop. By then it was too late, an ankle was broken, bones shattered like glass. 

A crowd gathered; talking, laughing, looking and taking pictures. He needed help. She couldn’t walk. Everyone had an opinion. What they would have done, what he needed to do and how it happened.  Everyone stood there, trying to record the pain of the screaming woman and the fear of the panicked driver.

Struggling; one trying to stand, the other with fear of jail – they leaned on each other. He placed her in the car and fearfully gripping the wheel, they left them there.

Laughing, talking, snapping, uploading and not worried about a thing.
