Utah officer helping to save lives at crash scene again

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A Salt Lake police officer doesn’t know why he often ends up being at the right place at the right time.

In 2011, officer Kevin Peck crawled under a crashed bus to hold a woman’s hand until she was finally rescued.

Peck the Deseret News this week that he helped save another crash victim a month ago but in Europe.

Peck says he and his wife were traveling from Germany to France when two cars in front of them collided on a one-lane road.

Despite a language barrier, Peck got someone’s belt and used it as a tourniquet on an injured woman’s leg.

Peck made headlines when a photo captured him with his head under a bus in West Valley City clutching the hand of a woman pinned underneath.
