Real life hero’s quick reflexes saved his fellow police officer from an oncoming, uncontrollable car last October 3.
Police Officers Matthew Steward and Jessica McGraw were conducting an investigation for a car accident. Unknowingly, the driver in a white passenger car going north on Highway 23 lost control. It crossed the median and hit the front left side of McGraw’s patrol. It pushed the patrol vehicle off the shoulder of the road towards the two officers. Steward instinctively pulled McGraw aside, saving her from being crushed by the two cars.
As if nothing happened, Steward quickly went to check the status of the driver on the other car. Calls were made for extra assistance. No word was given about the condition of the said driver. He was cited for failure to maintain proper control of his car after the investigation was conducted. Steward sustained minor injury only. He said that his leg went numbed “like I had a bad charley horse.” Both he and McGraw are already set to return to work.
Thanks to this real life hero’s quick reflexes and alertness, two lives were saved! However, ultimately, it’s still God who spared them from being harmed. It is He who gave Steward the ability to save McGraw. It is He who orchestrates and appoints the time for everything!
