New Rams coach Jeff Fisher stops to aid teens in crash
New St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher was a good Samaritan on Sunday.
Fisher was the first to arrive on the scene of a single-vehicle accident late Sunday night in Brentwood, Tenn., according to WKRN-TV. Fisher provided assistance to the two teens involved in the crash until authorities arrived.
A 17-year-old driver lost control of a Nissan Altima and went off the road and hit a pole. The car overturned and a 13-year-old was thrown from the vehicle. He has critical wounds.
Fisher told the station he did the best he could to offer aid before emergency crews arrived. He stayed with them until the professionals were on the scene. Fisher declined to speak on camera.
"I got there after, I saw him, we were going to our cars, (but I) didn't speak to him," Brentwood vice mayor Rod Freeman told WKRN. "If he stopped and helped, that is fantastic and I appreciate it."
