NEW YORK (1010 WINS)  A weightlifter lifted a flipped Jeep to help rescue a pinned driver in Michigan.

The weightlifter was walking down the street in Ypsilanti when a car and a Jeep crashed into each other, flipping the Jeep and pinning the driver underneath.

Ryan Belcher reacted quickly, lifting the vehicle enough to allow the driver, trapped with half his body underneath, to free himself.

Both drivers in the accident suffered serious injuries but, thanks to Belcher’s quick thinking and decisive action, there were no fatalities.

Belcher says he’s grateful he didn’t freeze when lives were on the line and that he was in the right place and the right time to help someone.
