Good Samaritans help father, son in scary crash

(WTNH)– Surveillance cameras at a North Carolina gas station caught some Good Samaritan’s at work after a scary crash.

The video shows the truck slamming into one of the pumps before flips over. Within 30 seconds of the crash, people are running towards the truck to help the father trapped inside.

Apparently the father had a seizure behind the wheel so his 13-year-old son reached over and steered the truck away from oncoming traffic. But the truck then went off the road.

The driver is in the hospital recovering.
