Man Killed While Trying To Help Crash Victims

A North Carolina man has been killed trying to help people injured in a car crash.

Multiple media outlets reported Saturday that the 33-year-old Good Samaritan fell off a bridge after jumping over a highway barrier Friday night in Raleigh.

Investigators say the man was one of two who had stopped to help. Authorities say they jumped over the barrier as another car hurtled toward them.

The man's name has not been released while authorities try to locate his relatives. The other Good Samaritan was not injured, and two people injured in the crash were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

Another man was killed in the same area four years ago. Todd Whitaker Fletcher died in October 2005 after he fell off the same bridge trying to assist crash victims.
