Chapter 01 – Deputy Shea – Sat, 12 September
Deputy Caitlin Shea engaged the cruiser’s parking brake while calling in the crash, and location – at least twenty minutes over twisty roads from Mill Hollow. Then she opened her door and dropped onto the gravel shoulder of the embankment, walking to the rear of the cruiser for her gear packs.
There was no smoke or steam visible from the car below and she did not smell gasoline. She was supposed to wait for back-up, since an unsecured wreck was dangerous to approach, but back-up was at least twenty minutes away; any injured survivors down there might need her help right now. She had been an EMT and then a paramedic before becoming a deputy and knew that simply opening an airway or stopping bleeding could sometimes be enough to save a life long enough to get real help in place.
