Troy Elverfeld is being called a hero for saving the life of a driver in a pickup that was underwater. Elverfeld is an ODOT worker and when he arrived on the crash scene on Highway 20. He saw the truck, grabbed a metal bar and jumped in. It took three tries to break the window, and then he tried to pull the driver out. When they surfaced, the driver told him there was a second person in the truck, so Elverfeld took another breath and tried twice to search the cab, but found no one. The driver was hospitalized with a concussion.
