There was an accident on US 71 in front of Red River Industries Wednesday morning. Several vehicles were involved and there were some injuries reported. A witness to the aftermath told The Journal the actions of one young man were worthy of recognition.
Beverly Dalme said, “There was a ROTC freshman, Chase Corley and his dad that witnessed the accident. The young man did an excellent job checking on all involved and called 911. I reported to Col. Duffield (High School JROTC commander) about Chase’s excellent work and it was a lot going on.
“One vehicle had a little boy and his dog sitting on the edge of the highway. His mother was lying on the ground. He attended to the boy. They (JROTC cadets) just had a lesson on this very thing yesterday. This young man needs to be recognized.”
Dalme said she heard the collision and looked at the scene that resulted. First Responders came to the scene, however the quick action by young Corley were outstanding and should be recognized.
