VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — Three men saved a woman’s life July 19 after her vehicle ran off the road and caught fire.

At approximately 12:29 p.m., Linda Fedee was traveling eastbound on I-264 near First Colonial when she lost control of her PT Cruiser due to a medical emergency. Fedee’s vehicle ran off the roadway and struck several trees, and immediately caught fire.

Three men passing by witnessed the crash and immediately pulled over to render assistance without knowing one another.

“Nobody really said anything to anybody. Everybody kind of just jumped in, knew what needed to be done and did it,” says Richard Hobbs, witness.

“We just clicked. We just coordinated. It’s very emotional for me. I certainly would have liked to have rolled on and not stop, but I don’t think that’s what we’re supposed to do,” says Billy Stone, witness.
