Kyle Holtrust thought his riding days were over. The 18 year old was out cycling Friday when he was hit by a car. He found himself pinned underneath the car in the middle of the Tuscon Highway with no escape.
An innocent bystander, Tom Boyle, turned into a super hero for the day. He rushed to the scene and lifted the car single handedly off the cyclist while the car’s driver pulled him to safety. Holtrust was taken to the hospital where he expected to have a full recovery.
Holtrust’s hero wasn’t known for super human strength. The 6 foot 4 inch 300 lb. Boyle was at the right place at the right time, and acquired that burst of muscle power when he needed it most. Others on the scene, including the police, were pretty amazed by what they’d seen. “It was outstanding” said Frank Amado, a police spokesperson.
