Trejo The Hero: Actor Danny Trejo Helps Rescue a Trapped Small Boy Inside an Overturned Car

Actor Danny Trejo might be well-known for playing some of the scariest villains in films, but he also appears to be one of Hollywood’s most loved celebrities.  The actor looked like a real-life action star when he rushed to free a boy from a car after a two-car crash in Los Angeles.

Not only does the former Sons of Anarchy celebrity possess the reputation as being one of the very incredibly kind & caring people on the planet, on Wednesday afternoon, but he also made the title of the real-life hero following helping rescue a kid from an overturned vehicle. Captured on video, Trejo, who was wearing an white tank top & rocking an Trejo’s Taco hat from his collection of Mexican restaurants in Los Angeles, said that he just so happened to be in the Sylmar area in Southern California when 2 cars crashed into each other at the intersection of Hubbard Street & Jackman Avenue.

After seeing the hurt, the Machete celebrity & an additional bystander, a lady, rushed toward the wreckage. To get the child out of the car, Trejo tried to crawl into the wreckage from one angle but wasn’t able to unbuckle the kid’s car seat from that side.

The female bystander helping Trejo then crawled though from the opposite corner & was able to successfully unclasp the car seat buckle, which enabled Trejo to pull on the young boy out from the wreckage safely.



While the cause leading to the accident is still under investigation, Trejo said that it appeared that one of the drivers might have run a red light. The Los Angeles Fire Dept. said three people involved in the car accident were taken to a nearby hospital for injuries. However, none of them were life-threatening. “There was a baby inside & grandma,” Trejo explained. “I crawled through the window, but she got in & undid the seatbelt.”

“He was panicked. I said OK, we have to use our superpowers. So he screamed ‘superpowers’ &we started yelling ‘superpowers,” Trejo said. “I said, do this, with the muscles. He said ‘muscles.'”

Trejo is well-known for his unforgettable role in the AMC series Breaking Bad, the Spy Kids movie trilogy, along with films Heat, Con-Air, & Desperado. With his tattoos & tough demeanor, Trejo appears to be one of the scariest males on screen, but in person, he’s as sweet as can be.

Afterward, he told ABC News, “Pay attention,” he said, “And the only thing which saved that little kid was his car seat, honest to God.”

The breaking news of Trejo’s voluntary involvement in helping save a baby boy in the car accident quickly went viral on Twitter. When there seems to be horrible & tragic news flooding Twitter’s timeline, Trejo’s story was a happy reprieve. He was called the”Latin Keanu Reeves,” & users wondered if there’s anything this action fanatic cannot do.

How Do Car Accident Cases Involving Minors Differ from Cases Involving Only Adults?

All personal injury cases can be potentially complicated, but the complications only grow when minors are involved. In a normal personal injury case, for example, a motor vehicle accident that only involves adults, there is a two-year limit starting at the accident’s date for the statute of limitations. When there is a minor involved in an accident, this is not the same.

With a minor, the statute of limitations starts after the minor turns 18. This means that if a 7-year-old were in an accident, the statute of limitations for filing a lawsuit would not start until the child turns 18, and then would have up until they turned 21 to file. All personal injury cases can be potentially complicated, but the complications only grow when minors are involved.

At Arash Law, we have handled all types of car accident cases for plaintiffs that are of all ages across all of California, including locally in Los Angeles and Sylmar, to be more exact. Cases, where minors are involved, are indeed more challenging, but we have the experience and the knowledge to handle all cases.
