Tucker helped remove a male driver from the overturned vehicle in Wesport Conn

When Tucker asked if the driver would wait for him while he checked on the man in the overturned auto, the bus driver also said no.

Regardless of the fact that he only had a couple of bucks in his pocket and was about to lose the transport that was going to take him to the interview, Tucker ran up to the overturned vehicle and unbuckled the injured driver from the passenger seat and removed him from the auto.

"No, but if you get out I'm going to leave", the driver replied, explaining that he had to stick to his route.

With the help of a few other pedestrians, Tucker pulled the man from the wreckage and used the crisp, clean shirt he had been given for the interview to tie a tourniquet around the stranger's head.
