It's being called a miracle. William Bradford, 56, from Thomasville, Alabama was traveling west on I-10 around 2am when he lost control of his car, hit a tree and careened into a ditch near Pass Christian.
Several rescue agencies, including the Air National Guard, spent more than two hours removing Bradford from his mangled car.
"I feel blessed to be alive," said Bradford from his hospital bed at Garden Park Medical Center.
Bradford is suffering from a broken pelvis, broken ribs, two collapsed lungs, a broken sternum, ribs and fibula. Bradford is grateful to the rescue team.
"I don't have the vocabulary to thank the people. I was on the 911 board, and the way that team responded was great. It's the local people. I'll never be able to thank them," said Bradford.
Bradford's credits wearing a seat belt with saving his life. He admits he fell asleep at the wheel and offers this advice.
"If you get sleepy, stop. Being in a hurry is not worth what I went through," said the Alabama man.
