We don’t talk about Hummers these days as much as we would like to, but this story more than deserves our attention. A man driving a Hummer H3 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada noticed that an oncoming motorist driving a Pontiac G5 was about to careen into a group of kids walking down a crosswalk. Allegedly, the G5 driver was using his cell phone, and was speeding, and wasn’t aware of the children as he wasn’t stopping.
Darrell Krushelnicki, the H3 driver, reacted not by being a witness, but by veering his SUV in front of the smaller G5 in order to collide with it, and thus preventing a much worse accident from happening. Nobody was seriously injured, but the G5 driver has been cited by police for reckless driving, and Edmonton police are considering Krushelnicki’s actions worthy enough of an award.
