ARNOLD, MO. (KPLR) – A dramatic rescue attempt on a busy Arnold intersection kept a potentially dangerous situation from becoming even worse.

That's according to Tiffany Boyer.  She was driving by Richardson and Vogel Roads around 8:30 a.m on Tuesday when it was clear something wrong.

Red light cameras captured the incident that shows one car slowing down as the driver appears to lose control.

Witnesses say the driver appeared to have a seizure and was about to crash off a steep drop off near the northbound I-55 entrance ramp.

That's when a man and a woman jumped out of their car and tried to do anything they could to keep that car from crashing.

They got the attention of a pickup truck driver who then drove in front of the car to let it crash into his truck.

The driver was taken to the hospital but appeared to be okay.

Boyer said the driver of the truck and the man and woman who tried to help are true heroes.

"I never thought there were people like that out there anymore," said Boyer.  "It was something to see."

Shortly after our story aired on FOX 2, we were contacted by the man and woman who jumped out of their car to help.

Zachery Green said it was he and his girlfriend Kristin Martin who helped.  Green said he never expected any praise and was simply trying to help someone in need.  He hoped that the driver they tried to help is okay.
