GOOD DEED: Derek Ryan helped rescue a woman from an overturned car last Thursday.DEREK Ryan was 10 seconds from being in the wrong place at the wrong time when a car towing a caravan overturned near Tomerong last Thursday.
As it turned out, that 10 seconds may well have saved his life.
The Ison’s employee, who was heading back to Nowra from a job in the Bay and Basin area, made an emergency stop as a southbound four-wheel-drive was flipped onto its side and smashed into a guardrail in front of his vehicle near Tomerong Creek.
“I saw a white four-wheel-drive coming down the hill and the caravan it was towing was moving from side to side,” Mr Ryan said.
“I started stopping as soon as I saw it because even though the driver was trying to slow down the van was moving more and more, and they had a semitrailer coming up behind them.
“The caravan ended up pulling the four-wheel-drive over onto its side then the whole lot spun around and smashed into the guardrail.”
Mr Ryan said the male driver was able to get out but he could hear a woman screaming from inside the car.
“There was fuel pouring out of the car and steam coming off the exhaust and the woman inside was screaming. I didn’t know if there were children trapped inside. If it had caught fire with people inside I don’t think I could live with that,” he said.
Mr Ryan and another bystander helped the female passenger from the car.
The two occupants, who were believed to have been from the North Coast, suffered minor injuries.
There were no children inside.
