Three people who came to the aid of a driver who was having a seizure on Vogel Road will be honored for their heroic actions by the Rock Community Fire Protection District on Monday, April 1.
The ceremony, which is open to the public, will be held at 7 p.m. at the district's headquarters at 3749 Telegraph Rd. Cake and refreshments will be served.
On March 19 Zachary Green, of Imperial, and his girlfriend Kristin Martin, of High Ridge, noticed the woman swerving as she approached a green light at Vogel Road while trying to get on Interstate 55.
They stopped in the middle of the intersection and began running toward the the car, calling out to other drivers for help. Red light cameras captured the part of the incident.
That's when Don Grimshaw, the principal at Seckman High School, noticed the commotion and saw the swerving vehicle. He was able to position his pickup truck in the way of the vehicle to stop it from heading down the ramp.
The vehicle struck a guardrail and stopped. The trio then ran to the aid of the woman and stayed with her until first responders arrived.
