Good Morning! This is Laura Vaughn from The Weekend River in for Scott and Danielle.
It happened yesterday morning before 7 on I-88 at York Road. A bunch of random people worked together to lift an overturned truck up onto its side yesterday and save the driver.
A 32-year-old named Orlando Hernandez was driving down I-88 when his back right tire blew. Then he lost control of his truck, flipped it and slammed into a concrete barrier. The ABC News channel 7 a news helicopter got it all on video.
His truck ended up on the side of the road, upside down and he couldn’t get out because the roof and doors were caved in.
Then a bunch of construction workers and other people ran in to help. They worked together to lift the truck up onto its side.
An off-duty firefighter also stopped to help. He helped smash out the windshield and cut Orlando’s seatbelt.
Then he tried to get him to stay in the truck until paramedics got there, just in case he had a spinal injury. But Orlando wasn’t having it. He decided to climb out on his own, and he’s totally fine.
Here’s the video from ABC 7.
