On Wednesday, Sept. 14, at about 4 p.m., my friend and riding companion, Jimmy Cornett, clipped a slow moving van on Jimmy's motorcycle while trying to pass on 412W just east of Enid. The crash threw Jimmy and cycle some 150 plus yards down the highway. Miraculously, Jimmy was not killed and was able to walk away from the accident. A military vehicle stopped and rendered aid to Jimmy. Many concerned motorists also stopped to help. We were traveling to California from Chattanooga, Tenn. and was a long way from home. Jimmy and I want to thank everyone who stopped to help. Jimmy was treated by the emergency room staff, and stitched up by Dr. Price, at St. Mary's Hospital. I left to get a room at the Ramada for the night. The staff would put Jimmy in a cab when they were finished. When Dr. Price heard this he volunteered to deliver Jimmy to the Ramada. We were very much impressed with Dr. Price. Later that evening, Dr. Price called to say he was in the lobby and asked if Jimmy needed anything. This kind of care is rare in today's world. Dr. Price even offered to find Jimmy a ride to Tulsa or Oklahoma City, if he needed one. We flew Jimmy out of Enid the next morning in route to Chattanooga. It is now four days later, and Jimmy just got a call from Dr. Price, checking up on him.

Folks, you are a lucky community to have Dr. Price. If you ever want to get rid of him, please send him to us in Chattanooga.

Thanks Dr. Price and all those that helped us in our time of need. We plan on retracing our route next year and will definitely stop in Enid to see Dr. Price and the staff at St. Mary's.
