He saved her

A Brewton man is being credited with saving a woman after she crashed on U.S. Hwy. 29 last week.

Taylor White was “riding the roads” with his son, Jayce, when he observed the van pulling a U-Haul leave the roadway and overturn. The vehicle landed on its side in a grove of trees.

“It was really windy out,” White said. “I guess it hit that U-Haul just right and over she went. I pulled her out through the driver’s window, and she and her two dogs were OK.”
