The reporter for the Fort Myers, FL, CBS affiliate also thanked two people who pulled over and called 9-1-1 after the crash along with emergency crews, “to the firefighters, deputies, troopers, and medics who attended to us on scene; and to the ER staff at Naples Community Hospital for patching us up so well.
