Keenan Pearson is a husband and father of two. He met Megan Hansen after the two of them slid off a highway early Oct. 6.

As they were on the side of the road, a third car lost control and came barreling toward them. Pearson didn’t hesitate to push Hansen out of the way.

“I was so grateful that it was him rather than someone else that maybe would have been in shock,” Hansen told KSTU.

The impact injured both of Pearson’s legs. One of them had to be amputated.

“He risked his life for me, absolutely. I’m a complete stranger, and he put himself first,” Hansen said.

Pearson said that while the accident was devastating, he would do it again in a heartbeat if it meant saving someone else’s life.

“If I can pick someone to push out of the way of a car, it would definitely be you,” Pearson told KSTU.

The two plan to stay in touch.

“I think we were brought into each other’s lives for a reason, and I’m super excited to have a relationship with you guys,” Hansen told Pearson.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to raise money for medical costs. If you would like to donate, click here.

Otto’s self-driving truck hauled a fully loaded trailer of Budweiser beer more than 120 miles on I-25 from Fort Collins, Colorado, through Denver, to Colorado Springs.

A professional truck driver was in the vehicle for the entire route, monitoring the delivery from the sleeper berth as the truck completed the route entirely on its own, without any driver intervention.

The load originated at Anheuser-Busch’s facility in Loveland, Colorado, and departed for its journey from the Fort Collins, Colorado, weigh station.

This milestone marks the first time in history that a self-driving vehicle has shipped commercial cargo, making it a landmark achievement for self-driving technology, the state of Colorado and the transportation industry, according to Anheuser-Busch.

Girl sparks friendship with lonely man at grocery store, helps him heal after losing wife

Norah Wood, 4, just happened to say hello to 82-year-old Dan Petersen in a grocery store one afternoon. The two have been inseparable ever since.

“Something in her recognized something he needed,” mom Tara Wood told Hot Topics. “It’s magical.”

Little Norah was celebrating her fourth birthday on Sept. 28. After preschool, she and her mom stopped in at a grocery store near their Augusta, Ga., home to pick up some cupcakes.

Norah, riding in the shopping cart, spotted an elderly man, and before her mother could stop her, she stood up in the cart.

“She said, ‘Hi old person! It’s my birthday today!'” said Wood.

At first, Wood was embarrassed.

“He wasn’t warm and fuzzy looking at all,” said Wood. “But then, his expression softened. He asked, ‘How old are you today?'”

After chatting for a few seconds, they went their separate ways. Then, Norah suddenly decided she wanted to take a picture with the man.

They found him a few aisles down, and Wood asked for his permission to snap a picture.

“He said, ‘You want to take a photo with me?'” recalled Wood. “His face lit up. He looked like a completely different person.”

After snapping a few photos, Wood learned his named is Dan Petersen.

Norah thanked “Mr. Dan,” and his response brought Wood to tears.

“His little lip was quivering. He said, ‘Miss Norah, you made me the happiest I’ve been in a long time,'” recalled Wood.

That evening, Wood posted a photo of the encounter to her Facebook page.

Soon, a woman who knows Petersen personally reached out to her on social media to thank her for what her daughter did for Petersen.

“She said when his wife died back in March, he sunk into a depression,” said Wood. “She said, 'That’s the first time I’ve seen that man smile since his wife died.'”

Wood was able to get Petersen’s phone number and called him.

When Petersen picked up the phone, Wood said, “He just burst into tears. He said, ‘I haven’t stopped thinking about that little girl. She just inspired me.'”

Wood asked if she and Norah could pick him up for lunch that week.

“He said, ‘That would be wonderful,'” said Wood. “He asked if we could come to his house and see his greenhouse.”

When Wood arrived with Norah at his small ranch house, she almost didn’t recognize him.

“He cleaned up. He got a haircut. He shaved. He had on aftershave,” said Wood. “It was like he had Jennifer Lawrence coming to pick him up!”

Petersen chatted with Norah like they were old friends. He set out crayons and paper for her and asked her to draw him some pictures.

“He had been so lonely,” said Wood. “We covered 30 years of stuff. He was just ping-ponging around. He’s had a fascinating life. He’s had some tragedy in his life. He was just so grateful to have someone listen to him. The whole time, Norah was just curled up in his lap like she’s known him forever.”

Since then, Norah and her mom have been visiting Petersen regularly. Norah helped Petersen celebrate his 82nd birthday last week with balloons, cake and gifts.

“They’re so childlike. They get along so well,” said Petersen.

Sometimes, Norah and her mother will drop by unexpectedly, giving him a call when they’re on their way to his house.

“He’s always waiting at the door for us,” said Wood.

Wood said she’s touched that her daughter has befriended someone who needed love.

“I feel lucky to be the one to watch it happen,” said Wood. “It’s magical.”

Couple with last name Trump say drivers are upset over their license plate

A Tualatin, Oregon, couple never thought their last name on their license plate would make their lives miserable during this year’s election.

KATU reported that Brian Trump ordered a license plate with "Trump" written on it nine years ago;  he thought it’d be easier to be called that, since there a lot of people with the name Ryan and Brian around town. He told KATU that people at work call him Trump.

Never in his wildest dreams did he think Donald Trump would ever become a presidential candidate years later.

Trump said drivers on the road started doing terrible things to him over a year ago.

"It took me a minute to figure out. I didn’t cut this person off. (I) used my blinker. I’m not like driving crazy," Trump told KATU. "Someone goes, ‘You’re not a Trump supporter are you?’ And I was like, ‘It’s my last name!'"

While some people have liked the license plate, Trump said it’s mostly gotten negative reactions.

"I’ve gotten a couple of thumbs up," Trump said. "But it’s generally the vulgar language, mean looks, flipping you off -- that kind of thing has unfortunately been a lot more common."

"Even if I was a die-hard Trump supporter, why should there be potential threats of violence or vulgar language?" he went on to say. "Try to treat everyone how you would want to be treated. It’s pretty simple. I mean, you might have a difference of opinion with someone, but it doesn’t mean you got to be rude or aggressive."

His wife, who also has a "Trump" plate, said she was approached by men several times.

"You have three grown men yelling at a woman alone in her car, it’s kind of scary, you know?" Trump told KATU. "You don’t want something to happen."

Brian Trump said he and his wife have no intentions on changing their plates or their last name. 

"I'm sticking with it. I'm not going to let someone bully me out of my plate."

Trump said he’s getting a graphic to put in the window to let drivers know that his last name is Trump, and the plates aren’t politically related at all.

School audit finds bus drivers using buses for personal use in Ohio

An internal audit of Dayton Public Schools’ operations department in Dayton, Ohio, revealed that employees are misusing district vehicles and taking inappropriately long lunches.

>> Read more trending stories 

Internal Auditor Randall Harper reported Wednesday that seven of 18 bus drivers checked had taken their bus off-route for personal use, three of them 20 times or more in 2015-16.

Harper said once when the transportation director was out, he decided to randomly check and within 30 minutes, found five buses parked at drivers’ homes or other places they weren’t supposed to be.

“Because it is difficult to monitor the vast fleet of DPS vehicles throughout the district with limited supervision resources, it is recommended that GPS units be installed on all DPS vehicles,” Harper said.

Harper also recommended the district hire more bus drivers, so supervisors could handle their regular responsibilities rather than driving buses. And he called for clear communication that personal use of DPS vehicles is prohibited and will lead to disciplinary actions.

Harper said in a five-week period, he did 44 observations at the maintenance division, where work rules call for employees to take a 30-minute lunch. He said in 22 of those 44 cases, employees took lunches of 43 minutes or more, up to a maximum of 87 minutes.

School board President Adil Baguirov said while Harper’s reports reveal unpleasant things, it’s a good thing that the district finds them, addresses them promptly, and is transparent with taxpayer money.
