Driver seriously injured in crash




When a Greenwood man drove up to a truck that had crashed on the side of the road and caught fire, he knew he had to put out the flames and get the driver out.

Steven Fettinger didn’t have a fire extinguisher. After trying to get the driver out of the truck, he realized he couldn’t. So Fettinger used snow to extinguish the flames and used the medical training he received in the Army to stabilize the driver until emergency workers arrived.

“I can’t honestly tell you what I was thinking at the time. I just had to do something. It was just pure adrenaline, do what you’ve got to do,” Fettinger said.
