LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville mother came rushing to the rescue,
saving her husband and two sons after the SUV her husband was driving crashed
along Interstate 64 near Frankfort, Kentucky.
The crash happened just after midnight Sunday as the family was driving home
to Louisville from Mount Sterling after the statewide middle school wrestling
championship. Police say Jeff Branch, the assistant wrestling coach at Fern Creek High School, lost control of his SUV and hit a semi
"After hitting that tractor trailer, it cut across the median, and
caused a second collision with another tractor trailer that hit virtually
head-on," said Pat Melton with the Franklin County Sheriff's Department.
"His life is geared toward wrestling. He loves the sport," said
lifelong friend and Fern Creek High School Head Wrestling Coach Mark Hitchings.
It's that sport that brought Hitchings and Branch together when they wrestled
in high school.
Now they coach the Fern Creek team and Saturday marked a bright spot in
their coaching career when it comes to Jeff's son Jared.
"Jared's hard work paid off. He was the middle school state
champion," Hitchings said.
The Branch family had traveled to Mount Sterling for the statewide middle
Saturday night they were on their way back to Louisville, but at the Frankfort
exit, police said Jeff lost control of his SUV. A fire then broke out after the
SUV struck two semi trucks.
Jeff's wife was in another car right behind her husband and saw it all unfold.
She came rushing to help while her husband and two sons were trapped inside.
"She couldn't get the doors open. Jeff, Derrick, and Jared were
unresponsive and the car was on fire. She said she threw some snow, but there
wasn't enough snow to put it out and she grabbed Gatorade bottles out of their
cooler and poured Gatorade on the fire and put the fire out," Hitchings
The jaws of life had to be used to open the vehicle. Jeff had to be air
lifted to a Lexington hospital.
"None of us knew if Jeff was going to live through this. We knew he had
been put on the helicopter. There had been no indications that he was
responsive or frankly alive and it was one of the most heart-wrenching moments
of my life," Hitchings said.
Jeff turned the corner and gained consciousness, but suffered a broken nose,
ribs, bones, and other internal injuries.
His two sons were treated and released.
"Thank God we're not here talking about a man who's dead," Hitchings
The crash remains under investigation.
While Coach Branch recovers, the Fern Creek High School wrestling team gears
up for its regional meet on Saturday.
