An 8-year-old boy grabbed the wheel of a speeding pickup truck this week after his grandmother began suffering a seizure. Lisa DeKruger was traveling about 75 miles per hour down Interstate 70 near Grand Junction, Colo., when the seizure set in.
As DeKruger’s foot slipped off the accelerator, her grandson Dillon Earl reached over to the steering wheel and guided the truck to a safe stop on the interstate’s shoulder. A passing driver called 9-1-1, and no one was injured. Lisa DeKruger is doing well in recovery.
