Chris Noecker made a choice Sept. 12 to be a good Samaritan.

She was traveling from Tamaqua to Allentown when she came across a crash just seconds after it happened on Route 309 in Lynn Township.

A car and a tractor-trailer had collided and the driver of the car was in bad shape.

“The driver was a young man who looked to be thrown around the car,” Noecker said. “He was in the back seat of the car.”

She immediately called 911, but decided to stop and wait until the ambulance arrived.

“They dispatched EMS quickly but it seemed to take forever,” Noecker said.
