Garbage truck driver saves baby in runaway

Jeff Blackburn was driving a CleanScapes truck in Seattle on Thursday when he saw a baby in a stroller glide unaccompanied through the intersection in front of him.

Without hesitating, Blackburn maneuvered his car so that it blocked traffic– honking his horn to alert a nearby FedEx driver– before sprinting out of his car to save the infant.

“I pulled my airbrake and jumped out of my truck as fast as I could to stop the stroller ’cause the stroller was either going to go down the hill or cut into the curb,” .... “Luckily it cut into the curb…because at the bottom of the hill was a busy intersection".
