Brad Luddeke, a former volunteer fire fighter from Arlington, was dressed in full Santa Claus costume as he delivered toys to kids in needs.
But as he drove at the intersection of Interstate 635 and Belt Line Road in Coppell, Texas, early last week, he was greeted by an accident between two cars.
He rushed to save the occupants of both cars and pulled them to safety, and had to return to the first car to pull the driver again when he noticed the car was on fire.
Huffington Post said Luddeke was just in the right place at the right time because as soon as he got the two out of the area, one of the cars exploded.
Luddeke said "I really just did what anyone would do in that situation. I just happened to be wearing a Santa suit."
