PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Clackamas County authorities say a deputy helped rescue a man who suffered a medical emergency while driving and crashed his pickup truck into another vehicle.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports (https://bit.ly/2gHUDBQ ) that the sheriff’s office says Deputy Jodi Westerman saved the 60-year-old man on Wednesday.

Westerman had found the man unconscious in his truck before she pulled him from the vehicle, performed CPR and shocked him with a defibrillator, which authorities say restarted the man’s heart.

He was taken to a hospital, where he is reported to be in stable condition.

The driver of the other vehicle involved in the crash was not injured.
