The Rise of the Medical Emergency, Pt. 47, July 7th Reports
A horrible bus crash in Manhattan, news of a horrible bus crash in Manhattan potentially suppressed by Google, plus a barrage of vehicular slaughter, mystery illness, and stroke. It's TROME
1) Double-decker tour bus was speeding when it collided with MTA bus, preliminary investigation shows
“What we do know is that the speed was so fast that the tour bus actually hit our MTA bus twice, bounced off, and came back.” [Emphasis added] — MTA Spokesperson
Sounds to me like the driver was still pressing the gas pedal. Even a very bad driver, or an upset driver — even a determined terrorist would have a hard time sticking to the plan after the head-on collision. I’m calling this one a medical emergency. That’s the best explanation with the information I have.
‘The MTA says there were about 20 people on the X38 express when the fully-loaded tour bus charged up 1st Avenue, ran the light, and t-boned the MTA bus.’ [Emphasis added]
Wow. Well, the MTA spokesman said they had collected statements from some of the tour bus passengers saying the driver was driving erratically “or worse” earlier in the day. It might be very interesting to find out more. But be that as it may, as NBC reports:
‘[Officials] said they couldn’t speculate about what led up to the crash.’ [Emphasis added]
Well, I sure can.
“I heard the lady next to me scream, so I looked up and I saw this bus barreling towards us,” Ishrak Jahan, a passenger on one bus, told CBS News New York. “I just saw glass everywhere for a second. It was honestly like I was in a movie ... I saw blood. I immediately called 911.”’
So, people on the bus that was hit had enough time to see it happening and react to it. After the collision the tour bus kept moving forward. No one died. Maybe we will find out more.
For what it’s worth, though — does anybody else find it suspicious that Google doesn’t offer News results when searching for the term “double decker tour bus”?
It might just be the way Google always responds to the search term. Might be no big deal. Might be suppression.
Meanwhile out West…
Down in LA:
‘It took several hours to get a semi out of a ditch on Route 619 in Marlboro Township right at the Lake Township line, according to the State Highway Patrol.
The road was closed for over three hours Thursday afternoon as crews worked to get the truck back on the road.’ [Emphasis added]
‘The patrol says the driver had a medical emergency and drove into a guardrail then a tree.
He was treated at the hospital, mainly for that medical condition.
He’s expected to be OK.’ [Emphasis added]
‘The preliminary investigation found a white Toyota truck was heading northbound across Slover Avenue before making a sharp eastward turn. The Toyota subsequently crashed into the eastern concrete K-rail and sideswiped two vehicles that stopped for a red light at the on- and off-ramps of the eastbound I-10 Freeway.' [Emphasis added]
The Toyota proceeded northbound and rear-ended a flatbed trailer being towed by a stationary semi-truck, which was also waiting at the red light for the eastbound I-10 Freeway ramp.
The driver of the Toyota, a 55-year-old Palmdale man, was declared deceased at the site by paramedics.
The San Bernardino County Sheriff Coroner's preliminary findings indicate the driver likely had a medical emergency before the crash. There were no signs of alcohol involvement from the driver.’ [Emphasis added]
4) Santa Barbara County’s Kim Colby Davis Earns National Professional Recognition While Undergoing Emergency Brain Surgery
‘The 19th brain surgery came as a bit of a shock and a surprise for Davis, but having endured 18 previous surgeries to treat a rare illness, she is quite used to the process and has already returned to work. After a full life and career in the financial planning field, Davis was met with a life-altering medical condition.’ [Emphasis added]
Okay, look: that’s pretty much the whole story. It doesn’t seem all that far out these days to hear of someone shot-injured two years ago having undergone a mere 19 brain surgeries since then. It sounds like a lot, but we keep hearing about encephalitis, and terms I never feel comfortable saying like “water on the brain.” I can imagine a scenario where a person is constantly having their skull drained — which might be called “brain surgery.”
Anyway. Yuck. I don’t know what’s happening here, but it sounds kinda TROME.
‘A Roseburg woman died in a single vehicle accident Wednesday afternoon.
A report from the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said just after 4:30 p.m. a witness saw a sedan traveling north on Garden Valley Road in the turn lane near Heartwood Lane. The witness said the vehicle slowed down and was drifting into the northbound lane, narrowly missing the witness’s southbound vehicle before leaving the roadway heading into the ditch line. The sedan then went off the west side of the road, striking a CenturyLink box and a fence before coming to rest against a tree.
The report said a second witness saw a large dirt cloud that had been caused by the victim’s vehicle. The witnesses immediately stopped and checked on the driver who initially had a faint pulse but lost it prior to the arrival of emergency medical personnel. One witness said that no odor of alcohol was noticed when he checked on the woman.
Paramedics transported the driver, sixty-five-year old Cindy Mattson, to CHI Mercy Medical Center where she was later declared deceased.’ [Emphasis added]
And Western Washington:
6) Driver suffering medical emergency dies after crashing into a tree in Vancouver Updated 2 days ago
‘A driver died Thursday after apparently suffering a medical emergency and crashing into a tree in central Vancouver.
Vancouver police responded shortly before 5 p.m. to a single-vehicle crash at East Mill Plain Boulevard and North Andresen Road.
Witnesses told officers they saw a Toyota sedan in the left-turn lane before it suddenly accelerated, hitting a curb and tree, the police department said.
Medical personnel performed CPR on the driver. The driver was pronounced dead at a hospital, according to Vancouver police.
The department did not release the driver’s identity.
Based on the sudden acceleration and lack of apparent steering, investigators believe the driver suffered a medical emergency prior to the crash, the agency said.
Vancouver police’s Traffic Unit is continuing to investigate.’ [Emphasis added]
Wow. The West coast is lit. Well, the fun doesn’t stop there.
‘Three Centralia residents have injuries following a two-car accident in Boone County […].’ [Emphasis added]
‘The accident happened when the […] 40-year-old [driver] experienced a medical emergency and failed to stop at a stop sign and hit a vehicle driven by [the] 62-year-old [driver].’ [Emphasis added]
‘Following a medical incident earlier just before and after junction 6 on the M4, can now confirm the carriageways have re-opened.
There are likely to be residual delays, and so please continue to find alternative routes where possible.’

‘On Wednesday night (July 5), our force control room received a call from a member of the public in Darlington, reporting they could see a female positioned at the side of the road, seemingly asleep and in danger of being hit by an oncoming car.’ [Emphasis added]
‘The officers spotted the woman in the town centre lying at the side of the road, like the caller reported, and in need of urgent medical attention.
PCs Muir and Dauber managed to get the woman, who was unresponsive, into their police car and rushed her to Darlington Memorial Hospital.’
‘The woman is now recovering in hospital […].’ [Emphasis added]
‘Dallas Police received a 911 call that an off-duty Dallas Police Officer had collapsed near a parking lot after returning home from a shift.
The preliminary investigation determined an apartment employee and officers performed CPR while waiting for Dallas Fire Rescue to respond.
DFR transported the man to a local hospital where he died.
The officer was assigned to Southwest Patrol and has been with DPD for 31 years.’ [Emphasis added]
‘Uganda’s legendary artiste, Jose Chameleone, has been hospitalised in the United States following complications from a stomach ailment.
The 44-year-old star’s father confirmed the news to Bukedde TV, revealing that Chameleone has been battling stomach issues for several months.
“Chameleone has been unwell for the past few months. The condition worsened when he moved to America, and now he is seriously ill, confined to his sickbed. He is undergoing treatment for complications in his stomach,” shared Chameleone’s father.’ [Emphasis added]
‘Chameleone’s brother Humprey Mayanja is also reportedly ill and bedridden in the same country.
He also underwent emergency surgery for stomach-related complications this week.
Chameleone’s brother took to social media on Tuesday night to share an alarming update about his health.
Shortly after arriving in the US from Uganda, he experienced a medical emergency that required immediate attention.
During the layover in Amsterdam, he recounted feeling fatigued and experiencing intermittent fevers, resulting in a restless journey.
When he arrived in Boston and tried to rest, he woke up with severe abdominal pain. His stomach swelled every five minutes, making it excruciatingly painful for him to walk or eat.
Recognizing the urgency of the situation, his best friend drove him to the emergency room, where he underwent a series of medical examinations.
After being diagnosed, it was determined that further analysis and treatment were necessary.
Initially, a nasogastric tube was inserted into his stomach to clear the infection. However, the medical team eventually decided to carry out a full surgical procedure.
This is not the first time Jose Chameleone has faced health challenges. In 2021, he was reported to be critically ill and was admitted to the ICU.’ [Emphasis added]
Well, this is what it looks like.
‘The young man was working out alone at the East Side Fitness Center near his home in Skiatook on June 22 last year when he
experienced what’s referred to as an “AVM hemorrhage’ had a stroke. [Emphasis added]
According to the Mayo Clinic, arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is a tangle of blood vessels that irregularly connects arteries and veins, disrupting blood flow and oxygen circulation.
Mason called 9-1-1 immediately, a move that saved his life, but as his dad explained on Friday, his son’s road to recovery from the stroke is just beginning.’ [Emphasis added]
‘While Mason needed help transferring to his wheelchair on Friday, his parents are confident he will walk again.’ [Emphasis added]
People keep having aneurysms and strokes. In this case they’re saying the boy’s blood vessels were tangled. Well, that’s ABTV at this point. And that’s unacceptable at this point.
