MILFORD, Ohio (WXIX) – Two teens involved in a highway crash over the weekend are alive thanks to a pair of nurses who saw it unfold and stopped to help.
The crash happened Saturday night as 15-year-old Milford High School sophomore Ariez Dominguez and a teenage female friend were driving in a three-wheeled vehicle on Interstate 275.
The teens were on their way to prom, but they wouldn’t get there. The vehicle “oversteered itself” when Dominguez was changing lanes, causing him to lose control and crash into a wall, according to a family member.
Nadia Bolger, a nurse at Bethesda North, and Meredith Gregory, a travel nurse, were on their way to a cancer fundraiser when they saw traffic and stopped to find the teens, fully dressed for prom, critically injured.
Dominguez had been thrown from the vehicle. EMS had yet to arrive.
“When I parked, Nadia took off in one direction,” said Gregory. “I took off in another, because he was pretty far down the highway from where the motorcycle was. […]He was not breathing and did not have a pulse, so she initiated CPR.”
Bolger was able to get the teen’s pulse back.
