A Roswell bus driver is being hailed a hero for helping five people involved in a car crash. 

Shaley Pritchard was driving his route along North Main last month, when he saw a crash and smoke coming from the car hood. 

He pulled over his bus, unloaded his 15 passengers and ran over with a fire extinguisher to keep the smoldering engine under control while others helped the people out of the car. 

Once they were safe, Pritchard loaded his passengers back on the bus and continued his route.
