CARROLLTON, Ga. -

A local man says a Good Samaritan saved him from a terrible wreck. A hit-and-run accident cost John Pulliam his leg, but could have cost him his life if not for Randel Sensing.

"There is no doubt in my mind that what Randall did that day saved my life," Pulliam said.

Pulliam was riding his motorcycle in Carrollton when he collided with a truck. The driver of that truck sped off, but Randel drove up and sprang into action.

"I went over there to John to see what I could do to help," said Sensing.

"I laid my head back on the pavement and I prayed to God and I said, ‘God, please don't let me die today on this highway," said Pulliam.

Sensing made a makeshift tourniquet about of a belt he was wearing. He continued to hold it into place even after paramedics arrived on the scene.

"By the time I was life-flighted to Atlanta Medical Center, I was down to 8 percent of my life's blood," said Pulliam.

The two men reunited for the first time since the accident on Thursday in an emotional scene for two fathers of four and their wives.

"He saved my husband's life. Without him, I wouldn't have him, without a doubt," said Kary Pulliam.

Police said they are looking for a light blue 80s or 90s Chevy or GMC truck.  The truck would have damage on the front passenger side. Anyone with information is asked to call the Georgia State Patrol.
