    Two semitrailer truck drivers helped stop a pickup truck that was careening out of control on I-94 in Kenosha County this weekend after the pickup driver apparently passed out behind the wheel and later was pronounced dead.

    The pickup truck was bouncing off the northbound wall of I-94 around 5:45 a.m. Saturday. Realizing something was wrong, the two semi truck drivers followed behind the pickup to box out other traffic and keep other motorists from harm, according to the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department.

    When the pickup truck slowed, one of the semi drivers, Rafal Jedlewski, jumped out of his vehicle and ran up to the pickup. He pulled off the door handle but still managed to open the door and stop the pickup by pressing the brake.

    Once the pickup truck was safely stopped, Jedlewski and the other semi truck driver, who was not named, pulled the pickup driver out of his vehicle.

    The man, later identified as Brian P. Carney, 52, of Northfield, Ill., was unconscious and not breathing and was pronounced dead at a hospital. The sheriff’s department reported it appeared Carney suffered some sort of medical emergency.
