Good Samaritans critically injured in freeway crash
High school athlete has foot amputated
Two good Samaritans who stopped to help crash victims on a Detroit freeway Sunday became victims themselves, after being struck by a vehicle driven by a suspected drunk driver.
A doctor at Henry Ford Hospital and 17-year-old Sean English, a high school athlete, both stopped to help the six teenagers who were inside a Jeep when it rolled on I-96 on the city’s west side.
While assisting the injured they were struck by a vehicle driven by a 17-year-old who may have been drunk.
The doctor is in critical condition at a local hospital after undergoing brain surgery. English had to have his foot amputated. A Michigan State Trooper used a tourniquet to stop the bleeding, which EMTS say likely saved the teen’s life.
The driver who hit the two was unresponsive after the crash and had to be cut from this vehicle with The Jaws of Life. He's in critical condition.
The teens who were in the Jeep did not suffer any life-threatening injuries. Their ages range from 14 to 19 years old. It's unclear what made the driver lose control and roll the SUV.
The crashes remain under investigation.
