Actor Danny Trejo says, “He was just at the right place at the right time.”  He was originally headed to get some car work done when he watched the accident happen.  A woman ran through a red light and hit an oncoming vehicle.  The car overturned and flipped over.  Inside the collisioned vehicle was a special needs child with his grandma.

Trejo and another good Samaritan fled to the scene to help. They were able to get the child out and keep him calm while they waited for help from firefighters to get the grandmother out.  Trejo says, the boy was very panicked.

Trejo advised him, “Okay, we have to use our superpowers. So he screamed 'superpowers' and we started yelling 'superpowers." I said do this, with the muscles. He said 'muscles.'"

"We got a kind of a bond. I kept facing him away from the accident." Trejo tells the reporter.  He works with special needs children and felt a bond with the young boy.

There were not any life-threatning injuries, but three people involved in the accident were taken to the hospital.
