A Good Samaritan who stopped to help at a crash scene was forced to jump off an I-95 bridge as a car came barreling at him, officials say.

The incident began Friday when a man and his family from Pikeville, Kentucky were driving in the passing lane when another car pushed them into the guard-rail and then left the scene at the SC/GA line.

A Good Samaritan driving from Pennsylvania pulled over to help and direct traffic after the crash, which happened before 7 am.

One car wouldn’t slow down and the Good Samaritan jumped off the bridge to avoid being hit.

He was treated by rescue crews on the bank of the Savannah River — after the nearly 60 foot jump.

Shawn Workman, who was in the original crash, says his wife and 3-year-old child were taken to the hospital with what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries.

The Samaritan is water-logged, but was standing on his own after a morning moment of terror he’s sure to not soon forget.
