Georgia football players at the scene of something like this…
… let’s face it, there were offseasons where we’d think the worst had happened.
This year, they were just helping.
It was just past 3 a.m. Saturday and Blake Sailors, along with teammates Austin Long, Wes Van Dyk and Dustin Royston, were driving approximately 25 miles outside of Miami on Interstate 95 en route to Key West for a fun-filled week of Spring Break.
The trip down from Athens had been a smooth one, until in the darkness ahead their headlights, they spotted a man standing alongside the road, frantically trying to flag someone down.
All of a sudden, the four noticed what the commotion was all about. Just ahead – five vehicles in a tangled mess with injured victims inside.
“We slowed down and saw that his car was really messed up, so we knew it was a wreck,” Sailors said Saturday morning. “After we stopped and asked what was wrong, we could see the guy was pretty shaken up. He said he had called the ambulance, but there was no one else there so we stayed and offered to do whatever we could.”
No word on whether Mudcat’s car was at the scene.
