Okoski didn’t just save her life, but also one of the driver’s involved in the accident as well. “While my first thought was to save my limo and client, I wanted to make sure the other two drivers were safe,” he says.

After going back to get the plow driver to help him, both worked to rescue the other driver. “There was diesel leaking all over the place,” Okoski explains. “I broke the glass of the windshield of the truck, cut his seatbelt off, pulled him out, and dragged him as far away from the vehicle as quickly as possible because we weren’t sure if it was going to explode.”
Okoski waited for the passed out driver to come to, told him to have a good rest of his day, and left with his client to make it to the airport. Incredibly enough, she made her flight on time.

When [Okoski] came back, he didn’t say much, so we didn’t really think anything of it. However, when we contacted the client to make sure everything was alright, she was the one who alerted us to what happened. It’s very possible he saved that man’s life.”
While Levine believes many operators think finding and retaining good chauffeurs is a difficult part of the job, he says this event reveals some are really amazing people.
