Hero Driver Saves Unconscious Young Mother… By Letting Her Crash Into Him

Proves the point that we Truck Drivers always hold you 4 wheeler,s up.


A young mother got in an accident when an oil truck driver in front of her intentionally caused her to crash into him. But she’s not mad. In fact, she says that the oil truck driver is an “angel.”


Asia Leigh Scott was driving home from an overnight shift at a local animal hospital last Friday. Scott is epileptic and usually takes medication daily, but the night shift caused her to lose track of her medication schedule. On her drive home, she had a seizure and fell unconscious.

A short time later, truck driver Damien McElroy spotted her car swerving ahead of him. He pulled up alongside her vehicle and saw that she was slumped over. McElroy then pulled his truck in front of her car.

“She started drifting back to the left toward oncoming lanes, so I more or less used the truck to stop her,” McElroy told The Mountaineer. “I just more or less let off the gas just hoped everything worked out and we could get her stopped and not hurt anybody.”

The plan worked, and by the time they came to a stop, Scott had driven while unconscious for a mile and a half.

McElroy, who is also a volunteer firefighter, ran to Scott’s car and found that her foot was still on the gas pedal. Reaching in through the cracked open window, he lowered it the rest of the way.

“I reached over and cut the car off and put it in gear to where it wouldn’t roll away,” said McElroy.

When asked why he put himself in danger and attempted such a risky maneuver in a fuel tanker truck, McElroy said he knew the driver must be a mother because he had seen a car seat in the back of the car.

“The only thing on my mind was the visible carseat in the back, and that she was laid over. I just wanted to get the car stopped,” McElroy said.

Though she was still unconscious when she was taken to the hospital, Scott took to Facebook to thank her rescuer and “told him he was my angel.”

“[McElroy] saved my life and brought me home to this beautiful girl, a 5-year-old little boy, and a husband,” Scott told WLOS, a local ABC affiliate.
