Description of TCA:
On the morning of October 5, Hull was leaving Byhalia, Mississippi on MS Highway 7 when he encountered a two-vehicle accident on a two-lane road. “The two cars just collided a while ago,” said former firefighter Hull. He said he pulled it safely and jumped out to help. “I went out and ran to check the occupants of the first car. The other two drivers stopped at the same time as me. They were both nurses.” They were the first. I found two women who were seriously injured in their car. “We did everything we could, but unfortunately they died on the scene.” Hull then rushed to another car and found out that the young woman he later learned was 24 years old. I found. “I worked to calm her down,” Hull said. “She had a broken ankle, but couldn’t determine what other injuries she had.” When first responders arrived, Hull helped release the woman from the car. ..
Hull said he was grateful that the young woman’s uncle and father were in contact with him and helped her. They believe she would have lost her life that day without Hull. “She was seriously injured and has a long recovery before her,” Hull said. “But she goes home with her family, including her daughter.”
Hull has been a professional truck driver for 17 years and a volunteer firefighter for 20 years.
