After removing the officer from his flaming vehicle, a homeless guy who saw a deputy-involved automobile crash that killed a mother and injured her two young children is being hailed as a hero.
According to The Houston Chronicle, a Harris County Sheriff’s Office deputy was pursuing a suspect in an armed robbery spree when he collided with a woman’s black Kia near the junction of Laura Koppe and Lockwood, causing at least five other vehicles to be injured in the wake of the incident.
The accident caused the deputy’s car to burst into flames, and the suspect is still on the loose, according to reports…
We reached out to the Houston Police Department for more information and comment, but had not received a response as of the time of publication.
Johnny Walker, who was working near the store where the accident occurred, reportedly jumped in when he heard the crash, telling ABC13’s Courtney Fischer, “I’m homeless.”
I was doing some freelance work for someone. When I heard ‘boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom
“I ran out here to see what it was and noticed a lot of automobiles, but I focused on the fire.” “My instincts told me to go to that car and aid him because he was smashed in on both sides,” Walker explained…
“No one was making an attempt, so when I went on one side, I couldn’t get in.” “I hopped over the car, and two other kids came up after me,” Walker added. “We drew him.
I let him out by opening the door. We scooped him up, loaded him into the car, and drove him inside the store.”
Walker’s valiant efforts probably contributed to the deputy’s survival.
“I think being homeless put me in the right position at the right moment,” Walker said, sobbingly adding that he wishes he could have helped the woman who died.
According to ABC13, the deputy was transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital with three other victims who received minor injuries.
The two children were also rushed to the hospital; according to reports, the 5-year-old is in critical condition, while the 2-year-old is stable.
“There are moments when you have to make a decision. That vehicle was on flames. Walker remarked, “I could lose my life.” “I had no idea who was in the other automobile. “My heart breaks for them and their family.”
Walker’s story, however, does not end there…
According to local television station KHOU11, the Good Samaritan’s family was informed that he may have been killed in a stabbing around Christmas, forcing his loved ones to search hospitals and morgues for weeks in vain.
Walker’s sister, Monica Collins, recognized him on the television while he was being interviewed about the collision, and after weeks of searching, she eventually found him near the location.
“He’s a good-hearted person who has been through a lot of difficult situations,” Collins wrote. “Our goal is to assist him in locating services for counseling and a place to live.”..
