Duane Innes saw a pickup ahead of him drift across lanes of traffic, sideswipe a concrete barrier and continue forward on the inside shoulder at about 40 mph.

A manager of Boeing’s F22 fighter-jet program, Innes looked back to see that the driver was slumped over the wheel. He knew a busy intersection was just ahead, and he had to act fast.

Innes turned hero, and pulled his minivan in front of the runaway truck before it slammed into other vehicles.
