Saturday, May 1, 2010

PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) -- A trapped driver has received some comfort from an unexpected source -- Florida Gov. Charlie Crist.

Crist came across a flipped car while he was traveling to Pensacola Naval Air Station on Saturday. The driver still inside.

The governor calmly talked to the man until rescue workers arrived. He asked the man if his arm was OK and told him to relax. Crist told the man: "I was in an accident once in high school. I was in an SUV. It flipped and went into a ditch. You'll be OK."

Crist also offered water to the man, who told him that he worked at a Waffle House. When he returned to his vehicle after crews arrived on the scene, Crist said the man was "going to be OK."
