VIDEO: Texas man stops 94-year-old wrong way driver


A Texas man is being hailed as a hero for stopping An elderly motorist traveling the wrong way down the road.

From a Facebook post by Thomas Prado:

“Please excuse language!

I drive 537 miles a day so I see many wild things on the road but absolutely nothing this terrifying! I was passing through Stamford, Texas this morning when me and the 18wheeler beside both had to swerve from hitting this 94yr old women coming towards traffic on the highway, the methods I used probably wasnt the safest nor smartest but once i got her into the passenger side some gentlemen from Higher Power Electrical out of Abilene, helped block traffic that also turned around to help assist me and her to safety once safe she said she needed to be at her appointment by 8am and I explained it was 9am, when I asked if there was anybody Husband, son,daughter, ext that I could call Her reply was “I have a cat”. Moral of this all is something I’ve said in my post before is look after your elderly family, friends, or neighbor! I’m no hero I’m a sinner and mistake maker like you but I saw the right thing to do and so can you! To all my driving brothers and sisters please be safe on that road and make it back to the finish line!

The incident was captured on camera in a series of videos which you can view below.
