MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Glenn Williams was driving on I-55 Thursday night when he saw flames eating away at a car, and a man trapped inside. He rushed down to help.
“I was scared, to tell you truth, you see the movies, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know gas and fire wasn’t a good mixture,” Williams said.
“The door wouldn’t open and the man behind the wheel stuck,” he added.
He and the driver of the other car in the accident both worked to free the man. The other driver’s car went airborne, but he still came out and helped Williams try to free the man from the burning car.
“I couldn’t have pulled him out by myself he was too heavy, too big,” Williams said.
The next day, he went to the Regional Medical Center, trying to visit the man who’s life he helped save. He says it’s what we all should do, but sadly Thursday night, no one else did.
“It was a whole bunch of cars on side of the road,” he said. “No one was doing anything, but they were a whole lot of people watching .”
