Large Container Driver Tommie W. is a hero after he risked his life to save a stranger trapped inside a burning car near Atlanta. He was traveling on route to his next customer when he saw an accident that just happened. He was the first person on the scene and jumped into action! He parked his truck a safe distance away and ran to a car that was already on fire. He approached the vehicle and saw the seat belt was wrapped around the driver.

After getting the driver a safe distance away, he was able to get her in touch with her husband. When EMS arrived, Tommie was still by her side and relaying information from EMS to her husband.
