A Maryland man, who says he risked his life to save a passenger in that car, has now had his car confiscated by police.
Benjamin Davis is stranded at his home after he says D.C. police had his car towed when he tried to a save a life by risking his own.
“I don’t know those gentlemen – I don’t know anyone – I just saw an accident happen. I just wanted to help someone and that’s what I thought I did. And I was treated like a suspect,” Davis said.
He says he was driving along Suitland Parkway just before midnight Sunday when he saw a silver Acura in front of him veer off the road, roll down an embankment and hit a tree. Davis says his first instinct was to pull over and help.
