Many of us have been in wrecks and it can be absolutely terrifying. Your adrenaline is pumping and you’re scared. You vacillate between trying to figure out what to do next and being thankful for being alive.
For one woman, however, a “man” (and I use that term loosely) added insult to literal injury when he stopped to help, but instead, ended up robbing her as she laid trapped under an upturned vehicle.
A Texas woman, Kimberly Smith, was involved in a wreck when her car rolled-over. Her brother, Joshua, recounts that a “tall, skinny black male in his 30s” approached the car and assured his sister that everything would be alright and that he was there to help.
“[He] even found her purse and brought it over to her,” Joshua wrote in a Facebook post. “She was still dazed and confused from the accident and he said he was gonna go get his cell to call 911.”
Instead, the man took her wallet and got in his car and drove off.
‘She begged him to just stay with her,’ Joshua Smith wrote. ‘He said “don’t worry, I’m not going anywhere”. He gets in the truck and takes off. With her wallet. All her credit cards. Id’s. Everything. And all this happened after she was trapped upside down and NOBODY stopped to help her.’
A man finally stopped and called 911 and stayed with Kimberly. She was transported to a hospital.
Joshua Smith, however, is (understandably) angry and took to Facebook to urge,
“If anybody has a ‘friend’ that is bragging about robbing some girl after she flipped her car this morning, please be a real friend and let us know,” he wrote.
“I hope this guy who stopped to ‘help’ and everyone that did not stop at all, is not a majority in our society today,” he wrote. “We are better people than that. Everyone please share this and maybe we can find this loser.”
It takes a special kind of scumbag to rob an innocent woman who remained trapped inside her wrecked vehicle.
What if Kimberly had sustained injuries that were life-threatening and time was of the essence?
What is the car was in danger of catching on fire?
What the hell is going on with society?
P.S. As a fun thought exercise, how much would you pay to be allowed in an enclosed room with this man for ten minutes, no questions asked?
