CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

An amazing act of heroism was displayed Sunday as total strangers raced to the scene of an accident. About a dozen residents hold up this truck and keep it from landing on the victims in a car underneath it.

The accident happened around two this afternoon at the intersection of Ruth and 22nd Street. Police say the driver of a silver 4-door car ran a stop sign and struck the black pick-up truck causing the truck to land on the car. That's when nearby residents jumped into action to help.

Four people including 3 children were hurt.

The driver who caused the accident was given a ticket for running the stop sign.
