Crash victim thankful for Good Samaritan's aid

Posted: Updated:

A North Texas man who survived a major crash last month is reaching out to the woman who helped him.

Dustin Mooney's Nissan pickup was hit head on when a Dodge Durango spun out of control on Interstate 20 near Great Southwest Parkway in Grand Prairie.

A Good Samaritan came to the rescue as he climbed out the shattered rear window of his truck. The woman called his mom for him.

"I wouldn't have been able to call my mom myself, that's for sure. I had blood running everywhere," he said.

Ruei Mooney said she answered thinking her son was calling.

"Who is this and she said, 'I'm calling to let you know that I'm with your son and he's been involved in a head-on collision,'" she said.

Mooney was wearing his seatbelt, but his head still hit the windshield. He had a bad cut on his forehead and chin and he broke his wrist.

He never got the name of the woman who put a cloth on his wounds and helped keep him calm.

"It was just overall greatness. I'm just glad to be alive," he said.

Ruei Mooney said not knowing the name of the woman who helped her son gnaws at her every day. As a nurse, she appreciates the care the woman gave him.

"Being in the medical field for as long as I have, you always want to be there to help," she said. "Whoever she may be, she doesn't know how thankful we are that she stopped."
