It was a normal Tuesday for Kellen Vetter, a natural gas technician with We Energies. He was on his way to a job site in Dane County when he missed his turn.
Like always, his GPS sent him down a different route. Moments later he noticed people waving him down. He hopped out of his truck and was told a woman was trapped in her car.
"I was nervous," Vetter said. "I was scared because I didn't know what I was going to see."
He saw the woman and noticed injuries, but he did not see the most severe injury.
"She said, 'I think my arms severed,'" Vetter remembered.
In an instant, the technician used what he learned in the military as an Army paratrooper and sprang into action. He used a belt as a tourniquet to stop the bleeding and waited until first responders arrived.
In a dash cam footage from Dane County Sheriff's Office, you can see the deputy arrive on the scene and Vetter walk back to his van and drive away.
He said he promised the lady he would stay with her until help arrived.
It's almost been a month since the encounter, but when you ask him why he did it?
He quickly responds with, "We Energies is a company and we put people first."
Whether that's to get people who've lost power back on the grid or help save a woman after a crash. Through it all, Vetter said the only thing that mattered is that she is OK.
"It would be really good feeling to know that she's doing OK," he said. "That's the biggest thing I care about."
Vetter said he's looking forward to meeting her again, this time under better circumstances.
