Motorcycles share the road with thousands of other motorists every day, but often accidents occur when they are not seen by other drivers. One such motorcyclist was pulled from a fiery crash last week. He owes his life to three good Samaritans, as Fox 5 Atlanta reports.
Gary Dillard has no memory of the fiery crash that occurred last Wednesday at Ga. Highway 101 and Bud Cole Road in Paulding County. He claims to not remember the five minutes leading up to the incident.
He has seen the pictures of the accident and that is all he needs to praise God and three innocent bystanders. Those bystanders rushed to pull him from beneath a tractor trailer that turned in front of him, leaving him no choice but to crash.
Dillard slid underneath the tractor trailer where he became stuck.
All he remembers is waking up the next day at Atlanta Medical Center. He was suffering from broken ribs, a punctured lung, and other broken bones.
Someone rushed to his home on a four-wheeler to alert Dillard’s girlfriend about the accident. By the time she got to the scene, he was in a helicopter being rushed to Atlanta Medical Center.
Dillard has expressed wishes to meet the three men who saved his life once he has gotten better. Doctors have said that it will be 8 to 12 weeks before he will be able to walk.
Despite his injuries, Dillard plans on still riding motorcycles. He says maybe his accident will raise awareness for drivers to pay more attention to other motorcyclists who are also traveling roadways.
One of the men who helped Dillard was an off-duty Paulding County Sheriff’s Deputy.
