According to the Highway Patrol, Trooper KL Huss drove a Dodge Charger north on Highway 321, driving at speeds exceeding 100 mph in an area of 65 mph. Moments later, another soldier saw the same charger speed more than 130 mph and shuttled in traffic.
Trooper Huss tried to catch up with the charger, but encountered a large amount of dust and debris and realized that the car had crashed. Investigators said that the charger passed through the fence, rushed down the steep embankment, hit a tree and caught fire.
The Highway Patrol said that Officer Huss found the driver and was identified as 27-year-old Andre Darrell Lee from Grover City, South Carolina, who was unconscious. Huss then found a child and a woman screaming for help in the wreckage. Huss rescued the boy in the booster seat from the car and handed him to a bystander.
As the car smoked and the fire began to spread, the authorities said that Hus climbed back into the car, unfastened the woman from the seat belt, and pulled her from the rear window to a safe place.
Soon after she was rescued from the car, the charger was engulfed in flames.
Li failed to survive.
“In this day and age, this is heroic,” Sergeant. Matt Footrell said. “He didn’t even think about his own safety and happiness. (He) immediately put this matter aside and did everything we did in this industry. We swear that we serve and protect, and this is what he did.”
The police said that a 5-year-old boy and a 23-year-old woman, also from Grover, South Carolina, were also taken to the Catawba Valley Medical Center, but nothing will happen. The child was later transferred to Brenner Children’s Hospital in Winston Salem for observation.
Investigators believe that Li may have tried to escape “because of illegal contraband in the car.”
The crash is still under investigation.
