A victim of a life-threatening car crash in 2016 formed a special bond with the firefighter who helped save his life and invited him to attend his wedding this month.
Juan Morales, the crash victim, was traveling on Route 198 and I-95 in Laurel on an early October morning when he crossed a median strip and went airborne. Two Prince George’s County firefighters, Damion Duncan and Michael Dugan, happened to separately witness the incident and they immediately rushed to respond.
Duncan and Dugan found Morales entangled in his car that was wrapped around a tree. They reported the crash to 911 and helped as much as they could.
Morales, 23, suffered from a head trauma and bi-lateral fractures of his femurs, in addition to other multiple injuries.
