Aaron Gutierrez and his family were on their way home after celebrating his six-year-old son’s birthday at a local pizzeria in Fresno, California when they boarded a bus to make it home for bed. Accompanying him was his mother, two children, and his pregnant wife. It was January 5.
After the bus dropped them off, they had only a short walk away to get to their home. But they wouldn’t make it there in time.
Suddenly a blue Toyota truck ran a red light and sped out of control directly at them. Instinctively, Gutierrez took action. He shoved his wife out of the truck’s path. Meanwhile, holding his one-year-old son in his arms, he somehow lifted the son up so he wouldn’t get struck by the grill of the truck.
“I heard a big bang. I looked over my shoulder and I saw the truck flying towards us. I looked at my wife, and it was heading right towards her direction, “Gutierrez, 31, told People.
“I knew I was going to get hit, and I put my son as high as I could, and I got hit. Luckily enough, I played football for so many years so I was able to cuddle my son into my hands when I flew into the building,” he added. “After that, I blacked out.”
When he awoke, he heard his seven-year-old daughter screaming, “Mommy is dead!” He looked and saw his wife lying prostrate on the street.
“I tried to stand so I could go beat the kid up, to be honest—he almost killed my kids. But that’s when I realized my injuries and that my leg was broken.”
The driver of the vehicle was found at fault in the collision, according to Lieutenant Mark Hudson of the Fresno Police Department. His actions could later lead to a citation. Authorities determined that the driver was not under the influence of any controlled substance at the time of the wreck.
As for Gutierrez, he is being labeled a hero. He saved his pregnant wife and family. His mother is currently in the ICU for bleeding in the brain, and he himself is recuperating from a broken leg. As for his pregnant wife—they are both okay.
