    I came upon the incident just after it happened. I was about the 3rd or 4th person who stopped. I’m glad to hear both of the girls are ok. I stayed with the younger one for a bit, reassuring and calming her down until the police arrived and I had to move my vehicle. Thank you to all the folks who stopped and provided some type of help including traffic control until the police arrived. My family and I have been praying for these folks-please keep them in your prayers.
