    The woman was foaming at the mouth, slumped over, and started seizing Dec. 23 while at a red light, Jones told WTSP. When the woman’s car started to pull into traffic, Jones pulled in front of it, letting the out-of-control vehicle hit the back of hers.

    Jones then called 911 and went to check on the woman. Rescue crews arrived within minutes.

    Jones is a star athlete with plans to attend college on a volleyball scholarship and study to become an orthopedic surgeon, WTSP reported

    “I always talk to (my family) about who I want to be in the medical field and how I want to save people and they’re, like, ‘That’s how you got started. That’s your first step,’” Jones told WTSP.
