ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the author's experience of being in an vehicular accident. The author was not able to join in the basketball practice because a doctor prohibited him doing anything that would increase his heart rate, so he took the school bus to get home early. When the author noticed that the bus was swerving, he discovered that the driver was having a heart attack. He yanked the gearshift of the bus into neutral and kept the bus on the road until they stopped.
