  1. Thank God no one was seriously hurt!

    • Just FYI, the story doesn’t say no one was seriously hurt. It simply says the injuries for which the person was hospitalized are not life threatening. That doesn’t mean they are not serious. The story doesn’t even say the person was treated and released, so that person might still be in the hospital.The story really says nearly nothing other than that there was an accident and someone went to some unknown hospital.
