CRESTVIEW HILLS, Ky. -- The best of humanity was on display when several drivers stopped to help people injured in a crash Thursday night, a local fire chief said.

Three people were injured in the chain reaction crash near Exit 82. Fort Mitchell Fire Chief Gary Auffart said the crash had the potential for very serious injuries.

"I found multiple people injured, but they were being taken care of by bystanders that had responded to help out," Auffart said.

One person was seriously injured.

"The first person I saw had a pretty good head laceration that was bleeding," Auffart said. "There was a nurse practitioner on scene and she had controlled the bleeding."

That nurse practitioner was Mandy Dalhover, who stopped to help with her husband.

"I hope she's OK, I know she had a pretty bad head laceration," Dalhover said.

Seeing the Good Samaritans help out made a lasting impression.

"The world is so chaotic at times, and just having that renewed faith of basic human kindness, you know that's just our job as people just to help," Auffart said.
