2 vacationing Wisconsin officers rescue Ky. crash victims

VERSAILLES, Ky. (WKYT/AP) - Husband and wife police officers from Wisconsin who were returning from vacation are credited with helping victims of a fiery crash in Woodford County.

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 that it's a natural instinct to do what you've been trained to do.
