Kenny Franklin was taking an Uber car to work Thursday when the driver suffered a seizure on I-4.
“His foot is accelerating on the gas, and instantly, I’m in the back seat wondering, ‘Okay, my life is pretty much over at this point,'” explained Franklin.
He was able to safely get the car to the side of the road. Franklin says that’s when the driver awoke in a panic and accidentally ran over a state trooper who was investigating the situation.
Trooper Jack Hypes was pinned under the vehicle, Fox 13 News reports.
“Adrenaline was racing,” said Franklin of his reaction to the situation. “Your heart, you know, is going a million miles an hour, and all you’re thinking about at that time is this, this needs to end well.”
With so much adrenaline, Franklin was able to lift the vehicle off of Hypes. He suffered non-life threatening injuries.
