Three valiant men saved three people from a blazing car. Three men John Colbert, Bill Renfro and Joseph Duvall while driving on Gene Snyder Freeway when a speeding car crashed into the woods. The car caught fire, and the occupants of the car were grabbed out to safety. The passengers, two men, and a woman were caught in the car, and they were rescued just in time before the car exploded. The third man was rescued just in time but was on fire. Later the Highview Fire Department reached the place but by then the passengers were moved to safety.
The three men who saved the lives of the people were honored by the Civilian Award of Valor on Tuesday night. Meanwhile, the City Council member James Peden gave away the Courageous Citizen’s award to the trio. While commenting on their awards the three men said that they helped people in need and were not anticipating any award. Duvall said that their only aim was to save the people in distress and nothing else mattered at that time. Renfro said that their focus was to get the three people inside the car out before it exploded in which they succeeded.
On giving away the awards to the three brave men Chief Col. Dave Goldsmith said that he was overwhelmed to recognize the bravery of three men who helped rescue three lives. Goldsmith added that on a Sunday morning the trio were driving as usual and when they saw people in need they jumped to help them.
