Actor Luke Wilson Was Called A Hero After He Saved A Woman From A Fatal Car Crash
It looks like you don’t need to wear a cape to be a hero.
Valentine’s Day wasn’t a happy holiday for everyone. In the Pacific Palisades neighborhood of Los Angeles, a lethal and awful car crash happened, which took the life of one driver, who was driving Ferrari with pro golfer Bill Haas.
At the same time, a Hollywood actor Luke Wilson was driving Toyota SUV. The incident left the golfer’s driver dead, while Wilson and Haas were injured.
According to a witness, Sean Heirigs, 46, an owner of a local tattoo parlor, injuries didn’t stop the actor from saving a woman who was trapped in her BMW.
The 46-year-old Hollywood star helped pull 50-year-old BMW driver from her car.
The wintess commented:
I would say he [Luke] was heroic in leading the charge on how to get her out. He didn’t have to do that, he was also one of the injured parties so for him to be there helping me was amazing.
At the time of the accident, Sean was driving his car with his 14-year-old daughter as a passenger, who later called the emergency services when they became witnesses of the car crash. He added:
Luke said he smelled smoke, ‘Let’s get her out’. He went in through the trunk and pulled her out. And then we both carried her over to the curb so we could lay her down and make sure she stays safe.
A spokeswoman for Los Angeles Police Department confirmed that the woman, who was saved by the actor, is in a stable condition.
Twitter’s reaction didn’t wait for long:
