Last Friday evening, my husband and I witnessed a collision on State Road 4 just outside White Rock between a small car and a bull elk. The collision incapacitated but did not kill the elk, and the motorist who hit him did not stop.
The injured, suffering elk lay in the center of the road, struggling to get up and presenting a significant hazard to both lanes of oncoming traffic.
My husband and I stopped to call 911, and while we waited for LAPD to respond, my husband and others waved to oncoming vehicles to warn them of the elk in the road.
I ask anyone who reads this to please remind inexperienced drivers in your household about the appropriate response to this kind of accident.
My husband and the others who helped might have prevented a subsequent serious accident and at least shortened the time the elk had to suffer.
