Tuesday evening 23-year-old Keilen Robinson crashed on Interstate 70 at the Lucas and Hunt exit and was left unconscious in his burning vehicle. Thankfully, the right man was in the right place at the right time and was able to save his life. Keilen Robinson does not remember anything from the accident, but he will never forget the man who saved his life. His name is Morgan. Morgan says that Robinson drove past him I- 70 and just moments later heard screeching breaks and a loud crunch. Robinson had crashed into the cement median that separates I-70 east and west. Other drivers stopped in traffic and started recording the incident, but not Morgan. He pulled over, and keeping his son at a safe distance, he rushed over to try and get Robinson out of the car. “The smoke and the fire and all that stuff started coming. It started burning my eyes and hurting my throat, but I was still trying to get him out. I had to get him out,” said Morgan.
