The Marine was driving around 3:30 a.m. on Interstate 5 near Las Pulgas Road in Oceanside, California.

CBS 8 reported that he pulled over to help 36-year-old Darryl Sheffey and his 31-year-old female companion. The couple’s SUV had crashed and was left sideways in the southbound lanes.

“Unfortunately, the freeway traffic was still moving at the time and the box van came and collided into the vehicle,” CHP said.

The couple were taken to a local hospital to receive medical treatment. Sheffey’s female companion remains unidentified.
