Father and son jump into action after witnessing rollover wreck

RAYTOWN, Mo. - A father and son jumped into action after a rollover wreck involving three teenagers.

"That's part of being a scout, being prepared and luckily I was prepared that day," Barry Monson said.

Monson and his son Lakota were driving down I-49 near Raymore, Mo., on Friday.

They were on their way a Boy Scout retreat when a car in front of them lost control, rolled over and crashed in the median.

The two scouts got out of the car, grabbed their first aid kit and rushed in to help.

"I just felt like I needed to help, to make sure they were ok. I have a first aid kit, an extinguisher and you never know if people need help or how serious it is or how minor is could be." Monson said.

Police say the 18-year-old driver lost control.

Two other teens were in the car. All were hurt, but are expected to survive.
