B.C. bus crash: Cellphone found at fatal crash site returned to victim’s family
Bill Gerber walked past the cellphone lying in the snow several times before he picked it up.
In the aftermath of Saturday’s bus crash on the Coquihalla’s Okanagan Connector, Gerber and other passing motorists helped in whatever way they could.
Gerber, his wife Bonnie and their 18-year-old daughter Brooklyn handed out blankets and wrapped a woman’s bleeding hand with a towel. Gerber directed a police officer to a body lying still on the ground.
“I didn’t know what to do for some of the time,” he said Wednesday. “I couldn’t wrap my head around it.”
Eventually Gerber picked up the phone.
