There's a fine line between aggressive and reckless/dangerous driving. I was riding the edge of that line. I see your point obviously, but I defy you to be in the same situation and not do whatever it takes. Besides, we only had a few blocks to go once off the parkway and I knew the quickest route, so stopping for an ambulance would have been retarded as it would have taken way longer, and driving safely would have been unbearable. In the end instinct took over and I just reacted. It was primal. I probably would have driven over a traffic cop if it meant getting to the hospital quicker. Also, it was our first, so next time I'll know to hit the Dunkin' Donuts drive thru on the way.
