A man is being hailed as a hero after he witnessed a hit-and-run and followed the person. The father of the person who was hit is thankful for the good Samaritan who saved his son’s life and helped catch the driver.

Jonathan Salgado, a Florida Southwestern State College student, told WINK News he was determined to do the right thing. And that’s exactly why he followed the driver he saw hit a motorcycle and just keep going.

Salgado saw a silver Ford sedan pull in front of a motorcycle and stop, sending the driver, Logan Wigglesworth, sliding.

“I was like, ‘Is he OK?’ Usually, everyone just went past him and stuff. I stopped, I went to take a look there, and I was like, ‘I have to catch this person,'” Salgado said.

Salgado did exactly that, going after the driver responsible down Del Prado Boulevard in Cape Coral as fast as he could.
