Hubbard students honored for aiding ATV victims

HUBBARD, Ohio (WKBN) – The Hubbard Local School District honored five students on Monday who came to the aid of two ATV crash victims last month.

Derek Williams, Bobby Salotta, Devin Howe, Joey Fisher and Jacob Nail were recognized for their bravery and calmness in a serious situation. They helped rescue Nick Wells and Colin Burdette, who crashed their ATVs into each other.

“First I got Colin off his four-wheeler and sat him down and got Nick on his back and took his helmet off. Then I went and called the cops. Went to the road so they could see where we were,” Nail said.

Nick Wells had a concussion, while Colin Burdette had nine hours of surgery. He broke both arms, ruptured his spleen and had every bone broken in his face.

Both boys, who are student athletes, are recovering fast.
