Staff Sgt. Adams, with 1st Battalion, 3rd Special Forces Group, stopped his car and ran about 75 yards down to the crashed vehicle to offer aid as his wife called 911.
Adams — who, at the Army’s request, isn’t being identified by his first name due to security concerns — ignored the excessive smoke coming out of the vehicle and saw a woman and two children in the truck. A fourth victim had been ejected.
Adams immediately began pulling the injured riders out of the vehicle.
