Morrisville, N.C. — Jacob McCoy felt he needed to help out when he came upon a a three-vehicle crash on Interstate 40 early Sunday. But he never expected he would become a crime victim.
“I was just doing the right thing, so I thought, and it turned out bad for me,” McCoy said Monday.
The crash occurred at about 2 a.m. on westbound Interstate 40 near the Airport Boulevard exit. Juan Martinez was pinned behind the steering wheel of his Honda Accord, which had been hit from behind by a Mercedes SUV, authorities said.
“He was bleeding pretty bad. His legs were crushed pretty bad. I was just helping him out until the ambulance got there,” McCoy said.
