Or he had been drinking/using drugs, or didn't have insurance or a license. Or...I might just be jaded. 🤣

You are correct. I think that is why some people will have someone they know drive them (bypass the ambulance ride). Maybe that is what happened with the guy.

I was at a bar, looked over and saw a group of people standing around an unresponsive man. Did CPR for about 5 minutes until EMS arrived. The bar gave me and my friends a free tab for the night 😉

That was nice.

I was on my way to work when I was about to turn into the campus I came upon a pedestrian laying in the road surrounded by people and one car with damage on the hood. So I stopped and assessed the man. Unconscious but still had a strong pulse and was breathing adequately so I decided not to move him until more help arrived. The woman near me on the phone with 911 told me to back off that the operator told her not to move him, told me twice. So I just told her to back off and stay on the phone, since that was what she was good at.  

Our paramedics came out quickly and handed me a pair of gloves so we could control his c-spine and get him loaded up. Apparently some time between that time and when I drove into work he coded and they life flighted him out. I never did hear how he did but trauma codes don't generally end well. I always wished to find out.
