A truck driver in Pennsylvania is being praised as a hero after he saved the life of a woman who was about to be murdered.

The trucker was driving along Interstate 380 when he noticed a car stopped with a man holding a gun to a woman's head. He decided he had to stop and help so he pulled his truck over and quickly approached the situation. The man tried to shoot the woman but the gun he was using had jammed. He was beating her with the edge of the gun when the trucker approached and pulled her into his truck with him.

The man followed the truck driver who began to swerve to obstruct his path. The driver made sure to radio in to other truck drivers why he was driving so eradically and he also alerted police.

Police were able to catch up to the pursuit and bring down the man with the gun. The man then confessed that he had every intention of killing the woman and then himself after he found out she was pregnant with his child. He was taken to jail and his bail was set at $2 million.

The truck driver told reporters that he knew he had to stop and help the woman because it was the right thing to do.
