Dixon Hero Dives Through Window of Runaway Car
Last week a car started drifting into oncoming traffic near an intersection in Dixon, Illinois. Turns out the driver was having a seizure. Two cops pulled up behind him after they saw him drift through a red light.
Before they could do anything, 39-year-old Randy Tompkins jumped out of his truck, saw the guy's passenger's side window was open, and dove through it headfirst while the car was still rolling.

Randy hit the brakes, put the car in park and waited with the driver until paramedics showed up. Luckily the guy's okay.
Randy told Sauk Valley he knew people's lives were in danger. So his adrenaline was going, and he didn't really think. He just reacted. He also admitted that driving through the window felt like something out of "The Dukes of Hazzard".
