Two local men are being awarded after committing an act of kindness. Last week FOX 31 told you about an accident on the Liberty Expressway where an 18 wheeler over turned on Exit five. At that time, two Water, Gas & Light employees were behind the truck when the accident happened, and so they jumped into action and pulled the driver out to safety. Thursday morning, the Water. Gas & Light Commission honored those men. Blake Bobe says, "and it's the right thing to do. Stop and they needed help. We didn't know what was going on so we knew it flipped over and so we got out and went over there and helped him." Vernon Walls says, "the right thing to do is to try to help the people if we can, and so that's what I did."
The driver of that vehicle suffered minor injuries, and did not go to the hospital.
