NORTH MERRICK, NY—Remember James Allen? the North Merrick fire chief that got a ticket coming to the aide of a car crash victim on the Meadowbrook Parkway a couple of weeks ago.
Rebecca Armstrong was the one that needed to be rescued, she couldn't believe it when her doctor told her she saw the story on PIX 11 News, that before Allen could help her he had to fork over his license and registration.
Rebecca still has a bump on her head from being knocked unconscious, her left arm is severely broken.
She'll have to wear this cast for another 6 weeks, and limit her normal activities, but she is just thankful to be alive.
"I started crying when I saw the photos." Armstrong said.
Chief Allen told us the trooper wanted him to move his SUV from blocking the right lane of traffic so cars could pass on both sides as he and his members tended to Armstrong.
"I've been thinking about it over and over again, because my car was facing the other direction to begin with, my right door they had to take me out it was pretty much on the right lane." said Armstrong "There's no way, how could someone think like that it just doesn't make sense."
Once again state police did not return our calls.
Chief Allen is due in court next month, Rebecca will be there too.
"How much of an injustice would it be in your mind if that ticket holds up? I will pretty much lose faith in the whole justice system because it doesn't make any sense to me." said Armstrong "they do a great job and they are heroes."
