A police officer’s unlikely act has made him a hero.
Chris Womack, an officer with the police department in Glenn Heights, Tex., responded to a call about a truck that had gone up in flames at a Jack in the Box drive-thru last weekend. He carefully nudged the truck with his own vehicle out of the drive-thru lane into a parking spot, all while other cars waited in line and employees were inside the eatery.
No one was hurt.
“My adrenaline was going a little bit,” Womack said. “But in the video, I’ve watched it a couple of times, I’m breathing pretty heavily. Well, that’s because the windows were down and I didn’t have the train of thought to roll the windows up during it. It was just a God-send that I was here at that particular time.”
There was no damage to the restaurant and it’s unclear how the fire started.
