Trauma Care & EMS

The morning of July 20, 2004, Connie was driving her usual route to work on a scenic, two-lane, winding road in the horse country of Virginia, when a young man driving the opposite way fell asleep at the wheel and crashed head-on into her car.  At that moment, Connie’s life depended on the U.S. trauma system.
