Police Constable Martin Willis was on his way to another crash in Halifax, England when he passed a van hanging upside down from the top of a bridge. The West Yorkshire Police traffic officer stopped to help by clinging to the side of the van to stop it from falling over the side of the icy bridge.
The driver inside was badly hurt, but Willis stayed calm and tried to help the driver do the same until more help arrived. The officer says he kept thinking how the vehicle could literally tip over at any moment, but thankfully the fire and rescue department showed up, got to work, and two hours later they pulled the van to safety.
1st on the scene of this collision on the #A1M this morning and faced with a vehicle balancing over the edge of a bridge with the driver trapped! After holding on to the vehicle to stop it swaying in the wind I can't begin to desribe my relief when @WYFRS arrived on scene! pic.twitter.com/E8ilktlOl7— Motorway Martin (@WYP_PCWILLIS) December 1, 2017
