Country music star and former EMT Craig Morgan jumped into action Sunday morning after he witnessed a crash involving three semi-trucks on Interstate 40 in Humphreys County, Tenn.

He and two crew members, Jerry Hines and Joey Greer, helped emergency responders, extinguished a small fire and cared for the drivers, WTVF-TV reported.

“He responded and did exactly what he had been taught to do and was a huge help,” said Humphreys County Sheriff Chris Davis. “This is just another example of the kind of guy he is. He loves doing things for others.”

No one involved in the accident was critically injured, WTVF-TV reported.

Just two years ago, the country singer made news after running into a burning home in Dickson to save two young girls, WTVF-TV reported.

Mr. Morgan previously served as an Army paratrooper and sheriff’s deputy.
