Deputy rescues 2-year-old found running down highway.
A sheriff’s deputy was traveling down a highway at night when he noticed something coming towards him.
Deputy Jeremy Gautney’s dashcam video recorded a small child running straight towards his patrol car on a busy highway. Deputy Gautney is able to get to the child and pick her up just seconds before a semi-truck speeds by them.
The 2-year-old family had been cleaning up nearby after a family gathering when the child slipped out through an open door and ran straight to the highway.
Lt. Curtis Landers, a spokesman for the county sheriff’s office stated, “The following video is for educational purposes and not intended to ridicule or question those involved. The incident was investigated thoroughly and determined to be accidental and no criminal charges will be brought to the parties involved.”
The message: pay full attention when driving.
