Mississippi Clarion Ledger: TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Employees Save Woman From Burning Car

How three employees saved a life while on the job and became local heroes in Ridgeland, Mississippi.

Diana Montgomery was on her way to meet her mother and sister for lunch in Ridgeland, Mississippi when another vehicle blew a red light and smashed into the front of her car, deploying the airbags, cracking her sternum, and leaving her trapped. 

In an interview with the Mississippi Clarion Ledger, Montgomery recounted the story of the accident and how three TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® employees pulled her from her burning car in the knick of time. 

The three men, Randy Wallace, James Perkins and Armond Carr, were en route to a moving job when they discovered Montgomery’s smoking vehicle and headed down the road to help.  When they got out of the moving truck, the three men saw Montgomery was in distress and took action, prying her from the vehicle and putting the fire out with a fire extinguisher.

"I am just grateful that they were there and they could help me… I am thrilled that I got to meet them," Montgomery told the Clarion Ledger. Regarding the rescue, Perkins added, “I was thinking it could have been my mom or something. It was not about me, it was about getting her out. I am glad that she is still alive and I can still see her smile.”

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® president Randy Shacka added, “The act of selflessness and heroism these three men displayed is unbelievable! They put themselves second in a very dangerous situation to help someone in need and we couldn’t be more proud of them for their leadership and truly living the core values of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®.”
