THOMASVILLE, N.C. -- The family of a man injured after his SUV rolled several times Tuesday, to avoid a car that pulled out into traffic, is reaching out to Good Samaritans who helped him.

Police say Trey Foster flipped several times when he swerved to avoid Justin Crabtree, who investigators say pulled his vehicle out in front of Foster on Business 85. Officers say Crabtree drove away, but they were able to catch up with him thanks to an unknown Good Samaritan who followed him to get his license plate number. Crabtree has not been charged, but police say their investigation is not over.

“That was most defiantly an angel,” said Foster’s fiancée Lindsey White. “From his family and us we really appreciate it because if it weren’t for [the Good Samaritans] he may not be here with us."

White says her fiancé suffered a broken arm, fractured ribs and will undergo surgery Thursday. The couple has a 3-month-old son and, being a new dad, Foster says he swerved because he was scared kids could be inside.

“He was scared there were kids in the other vehicle and swerved to miss them,” said White.

A number of other people came to help Foster trapped in his SUV. “I don't know who they all are, but we are really grateful for them.”
