Krushelnicki had just dropped off his girlfriend at a local mall when he noticed that the kids, who ranged in age from three to 16, were crossing the street right as a car was heading right towards them. The driver was apparently on his phone and apparently hadn't noticed that the children had the right of way.

Thinking on his feet, Krushelnicki drove in front of the speeding car, preventing it from hitting any of the children, who thankfully remained unharmed. Though Krushelnicki's car was obviously damaged (the bumper and passenger side was indented), he managed to avoid all injury except for a loose tooth. Pretty amazing!

Now, authorities are praising Krushelnicki and are even planning to recommend him for a citizen's award. Well, he definitely deserves one. He put his own life in danger to save the lives of FOUR young children--you can't get more heroic than that.

Meanwhile, the driver of the other car has since been charged with dangerous driving…which he should be. When will people get it? Get off the phone and keep your eyes on the road!
