HAMBURG, NY - "The images are still in my head," said Jeff Mang of Kenmore on Friday, regarding the events of a night before when he and others stopped to render aid to the victims of a two vehicle crash on Lakeshore Road in Hamburg.
The crash claimed the life of a 30-year-old town of Evans woman.
Mang and his wife were coming back from celebrating Thanksgiving with his wife's family when they came upon the crash on a snow covered and slippery highway.
They were among the half dozen or so who stopped to try to help.
Mang , a former Village of Kenmore police officer and a member of the Kenmore Volunteer Fire Department, says the car occupied by the deceased woman and two other passengers was so damaged that removing the victims was problematic.
"The doors were smashed in and the only door that could open was the front passenger side," he recalled.
