Darlene Nestor and her grand kids were driving from Cheyenne Wells to Golden, and then all of a sudden Nestor collapsed while driving 60 mph down the highway. 10-year-old, Gryffin Sanders, shook his grandmother a couple times to wake her up, but she was not responding. So, Gryffin took the wheel of the Buick sedan, while his 4-year-old brother was in the back seat; oblivious to the situation and playing on his ipad.

Gryffin said, “I could see over the dashboard while I was driving, so I had an idea of where I was driving into. I couldn’t get to the brakes because my grandma great was in the way. There was one car that was pretty far away. I just drove the car to the right.”

The 10-year-old boy steered the car from oncoming traffic, and drove the car off the road into a muddy ditch. While his grandmother’s foot eventually eased off the gas and while Gryffin drove through the mud, the car came to a stop.

After recovering from a minor heart attack, Nestor had this to say about what happened, “I’m so proud of him that he saved so many lives that day even in oncoming traffic. He’s always been a great kid. All my great grandkids and grand kids are great.”
