WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

A Wichita Falls man is speaking out about witnessing a car crash, jumping into action and turning that vehicle over to try and save a life.

Dalton Sadberry said it was just instinct and he was in the right place at the right time.

The wreck happened Friday in the 600 block of Central Freeway East in Wichita Falls, but for Sadberry, the memory is still fresh on his mind.

A video shot by Kilara Sadberry, Dalton’s wife, shows first responders rushing to get the driver out of the vehicle.

Sadberry said he watched it all unfold and even did what he could to make sure the man inside the car was okay.

“I watched him come down the highway, he was going pretty fast,” said Sadberry.

After seeing the car crash and land upside down, he knew he had to do something.

“I guess out of fear I picked the car up with a little bit of help from someone else and rested it on its side.”

He said he was just doing the right thing and hopes sharing his story will encourage others to do the same.

“It’s just the fact of being a good person, doing the right thing,” he said. “I would want somebody to do whatever they could to help out my family member if they were in that situation.”

Monday night the driver’s mother said her son is in stable condition and miraculously has no broken bones.

However, she said he does have a traumatic head injury and doctors are monitoring him closely.

She adds she is grateful for what Sadberry did and is asking everyone to keep her child in their thoughts and prayers.

Sadberry said he would like to meet up with the driver and his family one day and is hoping he makes a full recovery.
