"I was parked on the side of the road, and it just kind of happened," Delay said.
Bradford is now recovering in the hospital, and his church gave Bradley, who decided to become an EMS provider after the incident, a scholarship to attend EMT school as a way to say thank you.
"We go in every day thinking it's going to be normal, and it wasn't that day," Bradford said. “Things happen for a reason. I accept this challenge He's [God] gave me, and I'm going to move on, get this behind me and do whatever He's calling me to do. But what he did for me that day, I’ll never forget."
Bradley plans to start EMT school in September.
