I was involved in an auto accident on the evening of Friday, October 29th. A pickup truck had rearended my little Mazda Miata on Highway 275 in Tampa, which caused a three-car pile up with me in the middle. My right foot hurt (subsequently found to have three breaks), my auto was inoperable, and my spouse - an airline pilot - was not even in the United States at the time of the crash. You can imagine that I felt hurt, frightened and alone.

I would like to send my thanks to the Florida Highway Patrol, emergency rescue and other personnel who assisted me. I was treated with compassion and concern throughout the entire process. The confident, efficient demeanor of those present helped to calm me so that I could marshall my thoughts and assess the situation with less fear. Though I was too rattled to obtain names, I would like to extend my greatest appreciation to all the personnel who helped me. It is my opinion that these gentlemen represent the highest level of professionalism in the public service arena.

Thank you again,

Frances M. Blackburn
North Redington Beach, FL
