I was coming back from broadcasting the Bethlehem Academy football game in Wells and turning from Highway 21 to go east on 7th Street NW when several emergency vehicles came through the intersection about that time.
Whenever I see an ambulance or medical helicopter I always say a little prayer for whomever it might be.
