The bus left the scene and Tucker missed his interview.

Aaron Tucker was traveling by bus through Westport Wednesday when he saw the crash and jumped off to help the driver.

People are showing their support for a Bridgeport man who hopped off a bus on his way to a job interview to help a man involved in a Westport vehicle accident.

Ignoring the fact that he would miss his interview, Tucker jumped off the vehicle and ran over to the smoking auto.

She explained that Westporters have stepped up to help Tucker as well as others in the halfway house, volunteering to aid the men with resume writing and job preparation as well as donating business clothes.

The New York Daily News reports: "I got up around 5 o'clock in the morning because I was so excited for the interview". Tucker noticed that no one except him was concerned about the vehicle crash or the people involved.

Tucker got out of the bus anyway and found the car's driver strapped into his seat and hanging upside down in the vehicle.

Tucker went to the vehicle from the passenger's side so he could unbuckle the driver's seat belt and remove him from the overturned auto.

"He kept shutting his eyes, and I made sure he stayed awake".

The hero said he was sad to miss his job interview, but "a life is only one time. The only thing running through my head is that person in the auto could pass away and I could help him".

In an interview, Dale added, "He just did such a nice thing and it seemed like he was such a good guy who needed a hand and I thought that we could do that for him".

The total on a GoFundMe page created for Aaron Tucker, 32, had raised over $25,600 Saturday evening.

Westport community activist Kami Evans says that the community has joined in praise for Tucker's actions.

"I just want everybody to know it's not about what people could do for me". Tucker said that after serving 22 months on a weapons charge, the job offers are very meaningful to him so that he can again begin to earn enough money to raise his 21-month-old son.
