Passerby helps UPS driver with medical issue

— A passerby helped free a UPS driver who suffered a medical condition and went off the road Tuesday afternoon.

Shortly after 4 p.m., Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue firefighters were called to a report of a crashed UPS truck near Routt County roads 41 and 41A.

Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue Deputy Chief Chuck Cerasoli said the passerby discovered the driver slumped over and hanging from his seatbelt. When the driver was lifted up, some color returned to the driver’s face.

The UPS truck was not damaged, and the driver was taken to Yampa Valley Medical Center.

The name of the passerby who helped the driver was not available.
