Iowa woman finds her hero 24 years after Nebraska accident

(AP) -

 An Iowa woman who was badly injured in a Nebraska car accident has found the man who helped her 24 years ago.

Jennifer Hardie-Fehrer, now a nurse in Chariton, Iowa, has thought often about the man she could remember only as Chris.

He'd stopped after seeing the June 4, 1992, Interstate 80 accident.

Hardie-Fehrer was 12 and her 23-year-old sister was driving them from Colorado to spend time with their father in Iowa.

Her sister lost control of the car and it rolled just west of Hershey. Chris gave her some first aid, keeping her stable until medics could arrive.

They lost touch, but she didn't forget him. With the help of a North Platte Telegraph reporter, Hardie-Fehrer talked Saturday with Chris Scaff, who now lives in Pennsylvania.
