Kevin Arnold Grayson rescued Susan G. Fice from a runaway vehicle, Woodbridge, Virginia, March 26, 2003. Ms. Fice, 55, was unconscious in the driver’s seat of a minivan after a highway accident in which the vehicle was struck from behind. Out of control, the minivan continued forward on the multilane highway toward oncoming traffic. Grayson, 34, route salesman, was stopped in traffic nearby when he witnessed the accident. He left his vehicle and chased after the minivan, catching up to it on its driver’s side as it neared the intersection of another multilane highway. He opened the driver’s door, grasped the steering wheel for balance, and placed his right foot inside. Moving on only his left foot to keep up with the minivan, Grayson stepped on the vehicle’s emergency brake pedal, taking the minivan to a stop as it began to enter the intersection. Ms. Fice was taken to the hospital, where she was detained five weeks for treatment of her injuries.
