When Brandie Weiler pulled over to help victims of a car accident in Virginia on Saturday, she never thought it would be her 12-year-old daughter who would end up saving the day.
Weiler was headed to Busch Gardens with her two daughters, Maddie, 12, and Mollie, 7, when they witnessed two cars collide, Q13Fox reports.
The mom of two pulled over and got out of her car to help the victims of the crash. While she was on the phone with 911, the man who caused the crash, Paul Salsman, approached her van with her two daughters still inside.
“I could see him going toward the van, and I’m screaming,” Weiler said.
“I just went for it,” the 12-year-old said. “Nothing passed my mind except, ‘He is a psycho and he needs to get out of the car’.”
Maddie started punching Salsman and screaming for help, in addition to putting the transmission in drive because she knew he would not be able to start the engine and drive away.
“Once I saw Mollie out [of the car], I yelled for Maddie to get out,” Brandie Weiler said. “She was too busy beating the guy to realize that her sister was out.”

It is incredibly difficult for families looking for their missing loved ones. To not have any closure is probably the worst sentence a family can have.
