LINCOLN COUNTY, TN (WAFF) - With no time to spare, a Tennessee state trooper managed to save a man trapped in his burning car in a fiery school bus crash.
New dash cam video showed what the brave trooper and other first responders were up against.
Trooper Jon Judge was glad he was in the right place at the right time when he saw a Lincoln County school bus and SUV collide on Huntsville Highway early Monday around 6:40 a.m. The bus driver was on his way to start picking up students so there were no children on board.
“Thank God I was right there and able to provide assistance very quickly,” Trooper Judge stated.
He was the first on the scene because of his proximity. The camera in his patrol car was recording as flames quickly spread to both vehicles, filling the highway with thick black smoke.
