His mother drove as they carpooled, and he glanced up from a text message he was sending to see the car in front of them had crashed and was on fire.“I didn’t think, I just reacted,” he said. “Mom said not to get out of our car but I saw an elderly man walking around the car with his walker and he was trying to get his wife who was yelling for help.
