COLORADO SPRINGS - A local man is being hailed as a hero after risking life-and-limb to stop a runaway truck.
The incident was all caught on a home security camera in the Banning Lewis Ranch area.
The fast moving man you see is Sammy Vasquez with Bex Security, who just happened to spot the truck as it rolled by.
He was able to jump into the cab of the fully loaded flatbed and stop it right before it slammed into a woman's house.
Sammy tells us she cried tears of joy while thanking him.
The truck had been left in gear by a crew at the top of the hill.
