GAHANNA, Ohio (AP) - A central Ohio teenager says social media helped her locate the good Samaritan who aided her family at the scene of a Tennessee car accident that killed her mother in June 2002.

Eighteen-year-old Maddie Williams posted a public Facebook status months ago in hopes of thanking the man who removed her from the car and held her after the crash north of Nashville.

The Gahanna teen tells WBNS-TV (https://bit.ly/1o5yIZm ) the widely shared post drew thousands of comments, including one from a Texas man who said, “I think it was me.”

The man, C.W. Freeman, says he remembers waiting with the girl while her father tried to help her injured mother and brother. Freeman left when rescue crews arrived.

He says he simply did what any decent person would’ve done.
