The driver was alert and awake and, given the circumstances, Albright says this was a miracle.

“It’s our duty as a human being. We all should do that. I’m no different than anyone else,” he told News 2.

“I hope if I was involved in an accident this horrific, someone would do the same for me,” he added.

It happened so fast, Albright was unable to catch the name of the driver, or the others who helped.

News 2 reached out for an update on the driver’s condition but has yet to hear back.
