Evans, Ga. (WJBF) - A crash on a Columbia County road leaves one person dead and multiple people injured.

It happened near the corner of Columbia and North Belair Roads around 4:15 p.m.

Part of North Belair Road was closed. It is back open now.

NewsChannel 6 spoke with the young man who took it upon himself to pull the victims involved in the crash, out of the cars. He said to him, jumping into action is second nature to him.

C.J.Tanner said he saw four cars hit each other near the intersection of Columbia and North Belair rd, while he was working.

"I hear a loud bang, a couple smashes and I look up and I'm just seeing smoke; stuff coming from radiators, and cars sliding on down the roads over there," said Tanner.

He was working at his job at Sparkle Express Car Wash when heard the crash.He was yards away from the scene.

That is when the Grovetown High School senior's instinct kicked in.

"One guy is unresponsive," said Tanner. "By the time I look back and [I saw] a couple of guys are trying to climb out of their vehicle, doors are jammed shut, so I started pulling them out of cars just helping them, making sure they were okay."

However, not everybody was okay in the four-car crash. Drivers in each vehicle were injured and one person died at the scene.

Tanner rushed to do all he could.

"Would you call yourself a hero"? NewsChannel 6 asked.

"No," Tanner replied.

Columbia County investigators are still looking into what caused the crash. The victim has not been identified at this time. When we get more information, we will report it.
