Danbury – Injured Motorist Rescued By Firefighter
A driver was rescued by an off-duty firefighter following a crash in Danbury last Sunday evening.
A vehicle operated by a still-unidentified male driver was traveling on Saw Mill Road when it suddenly veered off its proper path, falling down an embankment and into a small stream. The motorist sustained injuries and was unable to extricate himself from the vehicle. At this point, off-duty firefighter Jeff Nolet passed by the crash site on his way to work. He immediately stopped and, without hesitation, approached the vehicle and extricated the conscious but unresponsive motorist. Responders immediately arrived and took over from Nolet and other bystanders who were looking after the victim. The crash is still under active investigation. This story will be updated when officials release more info.
This case exemplifies the dedication of emergency responders across the state and how their actions save lives. Authorities are constantly studying ways of preventing accidents, and identifying what causes them is a crucial part of this process.
