A truck accident claimed the life of a man on Tuesday, despite the heroic efforts of fellow motorists who lifted the pickup truck off of him.
One motorist approached the vehicle and held the man’s head as he called 911 for help.
Several other motorists stopped and together they were able to lift the pickup truck off of him. At which point the man was breathing approximately every 6 to 7 seconds.
The pickup truck was speeding when the driver lost control of the vehicle, jumped a median and flipped over on Calloway Cemetery Road, according to witnesses. The driver was thrown from the vehicle during impact and pinned beneath the truck.
Approximately ten motorists were involved in lifting the truck off of him. He was airlifted to Harris Fort Worth Methodist Hospital where he died soon after. Sadly, his 22nd birthday would have been next Tuesday.
Police are still investigating and trying to determine if alcohol was a factor of the crash.
