Sunnyvale man hailed at hero in truck accident

SUNNYVALE, Calif.

It happened at about 5 p.m. when a small truck flipped over on 280, in Cupertino. Fred Scott was among a group of Good Samaritans who risked their lives to help the driver. Fuel was spewing from the truck when they got there.

"And I saw it spilling on the side and I just wanted to get him out, I didn't want anything to happen to him. And as I was kicking on the window, he was conscious, but he was kind of dazing off. But in my mind, I just wanted to help him out before there was like an explosion," said Scott.

The driver suffered just minor injuries. Southbound 280 didn't reopen until a little after 7 p.m. Monday.
