Ex-inmate misses job interview to help driver in crash
WESTPORT, Conn. - A former inmate on his way to a job interview is being lauded for helping the driver of a car that flipped over on a Connecticut highway.
Aaron Tucker was traveling by bus through Westport Wednesday when he saw the crash and jumped off to help the driver.
Tucker, who lives in a Bridgeport halfway house, helped rescue the driver from the smoking car and wrapped his dress shirt around the man's head to stop a wound from bleeding.
The bus left the scene and Tucker missed his interview. But he says he's since gotten other job offers.
He tells WABC-TV it was "the right thing" to do.
A GoFundMe was set up to raise money for Tucker, who served nearly two years in prison on a weapons charge, and his 21-month-old son.
