Veteran Who Stole Truck to Save 30 Vegas Shooting Victims Surprised With New Car


When a sniper opened fire on a group of spectators at a Las Vegas country music festival, Taylor Winston made national headlines for stealing a man’s truck and using it to transport over 30 wounded people to the hospital.

The 29-year-old marine veteran credits his quick-thinking during the chaos to his military training. He says that once the shooting started, he saw a nearby lot of parked cars and started checking to see if the keys were inside any of the vehicles. Before ambulances had even arrived on the scene, he had loaded a group of injured passengers into a truck and drove them to the Desert Springs Hospital Medical Center.
