New York affiliate WPIX 11 is reporting that a construction worker in Northern Virginia played a key role in thwarting a kidnapping.

Huntington does road work along I-95, and on Thursday he was working near Mile Marker 155 in northern Virginia when he encountered a scary situation. He said he noticed a car coming toward the work zone at a high speed.

“I noticed a female jump out of the car, she came running up to us and you could tell she was pretty distraught and terrified,” Huntington told WTVR.

Huntington said the 18-year-old asked him to call 911, which he did immediately.

“I asked the female if she was okay and she said no, there was a man trying to kill her, I told her just stay behind me and I wouldn’t let anything happen to her,” he said.

Kevin would soon learn that the man the woman was talking about was Aaron Berg of Glen Allen. Police tracked him down after being notified of a possible abduction on the interstate.

Berg was later arrested, accused of kidnapping, strangling, and sexually assaulting the 18-year-old.
