Unemployed man, 32, misses job interview to save auto crash victim

Unemployed man, 32, misses job interview to save auto crash victim

The bus driver told Tucker that he had a route schedule to keep and was not going to help and would leave Tucker if he left the bus.

The total on the GoFundMe page created for Aaron Tucker, 32, had raised over $25,600 Saturday evening. In less than 15 hours, people have donated more than $6,000 to the father-of-one. But he said he's since gotten other job offers. The ex-convict, who is now living in a halfway house, wants to use his future income to provide for his nearly 2-year-old son. "His voice shines when he talks about his Mickey Mouse loving son".

"I got up around 5 o'clock in the morning because I was so excited for the interview", Tucker told the Daily News. "The only thing running through my head is that person in the vehicle could pass away, and I could help him", Tucker said.

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.

"It [my job interview] didn't go through my head because a job can come and go, but a life is only one time".

Tucker is trying to piece his life back together after serving a 22-month sentence on a weapons-related charge.

Adding on, Quintana has had an ERA of over 5 every month this year save for June (which includes July at a 5.59 ERA). Though at first glance his 4-8 record and 4.49 record may seem alarming, it is not as bad as it seems.

But the driver of the bus was unconcerned by the smoking auto - and by Tucker.

"That's really reassuring that people are still willing to step in and help out a fellow citizen".

When he was on his way to the restaurant, however, he saw a smoking overturned vehicle in the middle of the road.

The page was set up by Westport resident Karin Dale.

Tucker, who is living in the halfway house after serving a 22-month sentence related to a weapons charge, remains focused on a singular goal: Getting a job so that he can support his 21-month-old son, who now lives with his mother.
