Highway hero honored
“We came to a stop, and she still had her foot on the gas. Her back tires were spinning. Two truckers pulled over and got traffic stopped behind us. Another guy broke out the car window and got the keys out of the ignition."
- Bryan Jacobs, lifesaver
Bryan Jacobs was on his way to a quick lunch at McDonald’s on Jan. 11 when a Chevrolet Blazer in the outside lane of Interstate 35E suddenly veered across his lane in front of him and struck the concrete median barrier.
Jacobs had never been instructed on pulling in front of an out-of-control vehicle and gradually slowing until both of them stopped ... But that’s what he did with his company pickup.
