A homeless man, who said he is a Navy veteran, helped rescue a driver from a crash in Pembroke Pines Thursday afternoon. Travis Wilson said he was a U.S. Navy Corpsman, serving in the early 1990’s. When he heard the crash around rush hour, he said his military instinct kicked in and he was compelled to help. According to Pembroke Pines police, the driver of a white Chevrolet Cavalier attempted to turn at the intersection in the 200 block of Douglas Road when it collided with a dark-colored Dodge Charger. The driver of the Charger is an off-duty Florida Department of Law Enforcement officer, the agency confirmed to Local 10 News. Wilson was applying for housing with an organization called Operation Sacred Trust. As he was interviewing in a pavilion outside the organization’s office, he heard a loud bang. “In a split second he said, ‘I think somebody may need help,'” said Seth Eisenberg with Operation Sacred Trust.
