Heroes Come To The Rescue In Unbelievable Rollover Accident

An unbelievable accident scene on a stretch of I-75 in Hamtramck.

WWJ’s City Beat Reporter Vickie Thomas reports from the scene on I-75 southbound at the Caniff-Holbrook exit that two vehicles had flipped over in the right lane and the shoulder. Vickie spoke with two heroes, a father and son team: Tim Turner and his son, Tim Jr.

“We just came around the corner and I saw the two cars flipped over,” Tim Jr. said. “So I hurried up. It was some more cars, but I heard her. But the guy seem(s) like he all right. He said his head (is) hurting.”

“What about the other people?” Vickie wanted to know.

“The other lady, we pulled her out and she(s) fine. She(s) walking around and everything.”

Two EMS units and State Police arrived on the scene. They were pretty much blocking the right lane, but the freeway remained open; cars were getting through in the left and center lane.

That stretch of I-75 has since completely re-opened.
