Sometimes Republican politicians aren’t always so bad and are at the right place at the right time. Both Nevada Rep. Joe Heck and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio stopped at the scene of a fatal four-car collision to help the victims involved.

WTRF reported that Ohio County Sheriff Pat Butler noted a semi-trailer truck lost control possibly due to wet road conditions and crossed the median hitting three cars resulting in one fatality. There was no suspicion of drugs or alcohol involved.

Rep. Joe Heck and Sen. Marco Rubio were driving the fourth car and witnessed the fatal car wreck. POLITOCO reported they were driving to their hotel after an event in Ohio when the collision occurred. After pulling over, both Rubio and Heck helped assist the victims in the crash, including helping one escape from a car. Heck, who is also a trained combat surgeon, pronounced one victim, a 62-year-old Bernard Howard Bachmann, dead on the scene.

Heck also pronounced one victim, a 62-year-old Bernard Howard Bachmann, dead on the scene. As a physician and United States Army Reservist, he is trained as a combat surgeon. He’s also commanded a Medical Readiness Support group, served in Operation Joint Endeavor, Operation Noble Eagle, and Operation Iraqi Freedom. He also oversaw a combat hospital emergency room just outside of Baghdad in 2008 during his last deployment.

Heck expressed his sympathies and condolences to the victims in a statement saying:

Lisa and I want to join the Rubios in offering prayers and condolences to those grieving and wish a speedy recovery to the injured. As always, we have great respect for the first responders who handle such cases every day.

Rubio also put out a statement saying:

Jeanette and I send our prayers and condolences to the family of the individual who tragically lost their life in Thursday night’s accident in West Virginia. I want to thank all of the first responders who arrived quickly and did their jobs with swift professionalism. Please join me in praying for all those affected.

Heck is currently running for the U.S. Senate seat left open after Harry Reid’s retirement.
