Stamford teen earns kudos for rescue

STAMFORD - A Stamford teenager is being hailed as a hero for helping rescue a child involved in a three-car crash.

Aston Crosswell, a junior at Stamford High School, says as he waited for the school bus on High Ridge Road Tuesday morning he heard a loud bang. Crosswell says he ran over to a Saturn and found a middle-school passenger in the back seat and helped him get out.

Stamford police say all four people involved in the accident were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
