2 vacationing officers rescue crash victims

LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) - -

Husband and wife police officers from the La Crosse area who were returning from vacation are credited with helping victims of a fiery crash in Kentucky.

West Salem Officer Jeremy Randall and La Crosse Officer Jovanna Randall were heading home from Lexington with their children when they saw a tractor and car in flames on Highway 60 near Versailles on Tuesday.

Jovanna Randall directed traffic, while Jeremy Randall and two other bystanders wrenched open a car door and helped the driver to safety.

He flagged down a cement truck, which had a hose and water. After extinguishing the fire, he and a state trooper helped the tractor driver. Both drivers were taken to a hospital.

The Randalls say it's a natural instinct to do what you've been trained to do.
