EASTON (CBS) – An 80-year-old man is trying to find the nurse who rushed to his side in his moment of need. Just about a month ago, Lenny Strachman was in a bad crash which left him trapped in his truck.

He suffered two ruptured discs in his neck from the wreck, but what’s really bothering him is that he does not know the identity of the woman who climbed into the cab of his truck to help him.

She opened the driver’s door and I remember her saying to me, ‘I know what I’m doing, I’m a nurse,’” Strachman recalls.

The crash happened at the intersection of Foundry and Highland Streets in South Easton. When Strachman pulled out onto Foundry Street, his truck was hit by another car.

He doesn’t remember much from the crash, but he wants to thank the woman who crawled into his truck with gasoline leaking, to stabilize his neck until EMTs arrived.

“She put her right arm around my neck and basically immobilized me so that I couldn’t move in any other direction,” he said. “I believe that saved me from further injury.”

“I think she prevented me from injuring myself even more. She kept my neck still until EMT’s arrived.”

But Lenny never got her name and now, he just wants to thank her.
