HUMPHREYS COUNTY, Tenn. -- Most people may think of Craig Morgan as a County music star, but he's also a trained EMT and he put those skills to use on Sunday.

Morgan jumped into action after a crash on I-40 in Humphreys County involving three tractor trailers.  He was returning from a show in Texas and his bus was just a quarter-mile away when the accident happened around 11:15 Sunday morning.

He and two crew members, Jerry Hines and Joey Greer, ran to the scene to help. The singer helped emergency responders, extinguished a small fire, and cared for the drivers.

"He responded and did exactly what he had been taught to do and was a huge help," said Humphreys County Sheriff Chris Davis. "This is just another example of the kind of guy he is, he loves doing things for others."

Everyone involved in the accident had only minor injuries.

This wasn't the first time Morgan has helped out in a time of crisis. Two years ago, he ran into a burning home to save two young girls.
