Hero mayor rescues four from Louisville crash

Perryville Mayor Brian Caldwell moved quickly on Friday to help victims who had been involved in a traffic accident in Louisville.

Caldwell said he was in downtown Louisville Friday when he heard a loud collision nearby. He said a two-vehicle crash happened at an intersection where one of the vehicles was struck causing it to flip over and land on its side. Caldwell said he saw that the minivan’s roof had also been crushed after striking a light pole.

He said he ran to the scene and tried to talk to the male driver, who was trapped inside. Then Caldwell saw three children in the back seat, who were probably under the age of 10.

They were out of their seats and were trying to get out of the vehicle. But the only way out was through the back windshield, he said. So he broke out the window. By that time several other people were also helping out, he explained.

He ran around to the driver who was still trapped inside, and began trying to bust through the front windshield, all the while telling the man to help by kicking out the glass from the inside.

Caldwell said no one was seriously hurt in the accident, and he was just at the right place at the right time to help.

Perryville Police Chief Parker Hatter said, “We are fortunate to have a mayor who leads by example and not by words!”
