Man Who Saved Colleague's Life Recognized By City

It was a surreal experience that happened fast...that's how a city works employee describes saving the life of his co-worker a month ago when a one-ton truck crashed into an asphalt trailer. 

Kevin Hicks was part of a maintenance crew offloading equipment for an asphalt job on Hillcrest Road when it happened. He says after hearing the truck approaching fast, he grabbed Ken McCarthy by the shoulder and pulled him out of the way. Hicks has worked with McCarthy for about eight years. He says the crew is together all the time and they all look out for each other.
