Warren, Michigan, February 17, 2012 - Central Transport Driver Adam Hale helped save a life on Tuesday evening, February 14, 2012, when he came upon a car accident on US27 on his way to Orlando, Florida.

While traveling Route US27, a north–south United States highway that runs through Florida, Hale noticed heavy smoke and dust. As he reached the scene, he saw flames come from the engine area of an overturned vehicle, which had just flipped and settled off the right side of the road.

The driver of the vehicle apparently fled the scene, leaving a third passenger stuck in the burning vehicle. Hale and the other Good Samaritan proceeded to pull the stuck passenger out of the fiery vehicle and moved him to the side of the road and to safety.

Hale called 911. Police and paramedics arrived at the scene just as the vehicle was completely engulfed in flames. Police took a report and statements and Hale proceeded on to Orlando.

Adam Hale showed extreme courage and selflessness in this act and Central Transport is proud to have him on its team.
