What You’re Saying … And Taryn Does A Dance

So, cold that Taryn Brodwater ad-libbed her own version of the trying-to-keep-warm-while covering-an-accident dance at the scene of the Lake City High charter bus crash. And KXLY’s cameras were there to record it. Taryn blogs about her experience here. You can see video of her dance in the first part of this on-the-scene clip featuring KXLY reporter Janet O. Taryn’s the one turning in circles and jumping up and down in front of the bus here. (You have to put up with a video commercial first.)

John Austin: I just got back to Medimont after a meeting in CDA. In twenty years of traveling the 4th of July Pass, I’ve never seen it worse. Not a snowplow to be seen, or any other vehicles for that matter. It was like something out of the Twilight Zone, a complete and total whiteout. On my way to the meeting I passed the bus on its side at Hayden and US95. I was waved past the wreck, which by my count included no fewer that a dozen responders, with several more enroute after I passed. The thing I like about our emergency response folks is that they operate under mutual assistance agreements. I saw many different agencies dispatched to this serious accident, and truly within minutes they had the situation under control. Thank God no one was hurt bad. Now, if we can only get a snowplow or two on I-90 …

Spencer: The roads alternated between wet and black ice, and the only way you could find out what you were on was by stepping on the brakes. I saw about ten wreaks last night, and the roads were the worst I have seen in years.

CDA Mom: I drove through that same interesection shortly before the accident and I can tell you that the roadway was too slick no matter the speed. I ended up downshifting to 1st gear long before the interseciton and then hoping I could stop or that no one else would be there. If I didn’t have to drive tonight, I wouldn’t have. Conditions were hazardous tonight — at ANY speed.
