There was nothing they could do for Bradshaw, other than pulling him from the wreckage and give him extra time to say goodbye to his family.

Bradshaw's vehicle was crushed entirely and they used fire extinguishers to keep the flames under control.

A 30-year-old driver from the other vehicle, Daniel Spooner, succumbed to his wounds at the scene of the accident.
