Brave Wrecker Driver Risks His Life To Stop Wrong Way Motorist

A wrecker driver puts his life on the line to save others on the road from a wrong way driver.

In a video posted to Facebook on December 6, motorist Jennifer Myers follows the path of a dangerous wrong way driver on Highway 321 in Blount County, Tennessee.

Myers said she was unable to call 911 so she filmed the incident with her phone. In the video you can see the wrecker driver attempt to get the wrong way driver’s attention. When it becomes clear that she isn’t going to stop, he takes matters into his own hands.

Police say that the wrong way driver was suffering from a diabetic medical issue.

Everyone survived the crash. The wrong way driver was transported to the hospital with non life threatening injuries.
