Another driver Randy Tompkins slows down and pulls his pickup truck to the side of the road

Seeing that the driver was having an emergency, Tompkins jumped into the passenger window of the moving vehicle, and was able to put the auto into park.

Within seconds, Randy Thompkins saw the driver convulsing and jumped out of his pickup truck.

Police reports indicate that the police officers trailing the out-of-control auto did not realize the driver was having a seizure.

Tompkins is then able to quickly put the out-of-control auto into park mode, stopping it immediately.

"The cops said they saw me jump in his window like Dukes of Hazzard".

Tompkins then jumps out of his own auto and dives through the open passengers side window and is able to put the vehicle in park. "Wow my adrenaline is still going". The auto had crossed an intersection and broken many traffic rules and was even being chased by Dixon Police who had no idea about the issue but soon came to a halt when the Randy stepped in ahead of them to get the driver to safety.

The driver, who was discovered to be suffering through a seizure, was transported to a hospital to receive medical treatment.

"We want to thank Tompkins for his heroism and for coming to a complete stranger's aid today", the statement read.

"Yes, because in the 10 seconds we were behind the auto we could see with our x-ray vision the driver was seizing and let him keep driving".
