A UPS driver is being hailed a hero after saving a man trapped under a tire.

In a social media post to the Lake Area Happenings Facebook Page, Camdenton Resident James Pitts says he was attempting to start his Jeep outside a local car parts store when it happened.

Pitts says he was jumping the starter from underneath the Jeep, but was still in reverse and it ran over him.

The unidentified UPS driver apparently jumped from his truck, pushed the Jeep off of Pitts and placed it in park so that he could get out from underneath it.

Pitts says he wants to thank the driver who saved his life.
