Good Samaritans Rescue Trapped Driver After Car Accident

Good Samaritans Rescue Trapped Driver After Car Accident

It was an incredible moment of bravery captured on camera when a group of Good Samaritans worked to rescue a trapped driver.


A news helicopter flying over Oak Brook, Illinois caught this harrowing moment on film. A driver on a busy highway blew a tire causing his truck to flip over.

After landing nearly upside down, the victim was trapped inside with no way out. That’s when other drivers stopped and exited their vehicles to help the terrified man.

Together, they worked to lift the truck onto it’s side and cut the driver out of his seat belt. All together, fourteen Good Samaritans selflessly helped a person in need, including an off-duty firefighter.

Their quick-thinking definitely helped this man escape serious injury or harm. After recovering, the driver was so grateful for the kindness displayed that he decided to thank the firefighter in person.

This incident could have turned out very differently if these Good Samaritans had not stepped in to help. It is moments like this that truly restore my faith in humanity.

Titus 3:4-7 “4 But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, 5 he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, 6 whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7 so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.”
