A Car Accident

You are the first on the scene with first aid training what do you do?

One car is off of the road crashed into a fence; both occupants are out and walking about. The father is unharmed and the son who was the passenger has a bump on the right side of his forehead.

The second car is in the middle of the street; the driver, a male, is out and talking on his phone.  A 30-year-old male is in the passenger seat but he was not wearing a seatbelt, the airbag was deployed, he is stating that he cannot see out of his left eye. He is still seated and has not tried to get out of the car.  In the backseat are three children between 10 and 14 years old.  One has bit into their tongue but not a lot of blood is visible the other two are ok; all were wearing their seat belts.

A bystander has called 911.

Start as if you know nothing about the passengers except that those three are walking about.  There are several people standing about who are willing to help. Choose whom you will help first and what kind of first aid you will administer.
