NASCAR driver Clay Greenfield owns Greenfield Pavement Coatings. Her driver, Josh Cozart, was eventually taken to safety by the soldiers. No one was seriously injured.
“When I first saw pictures I was like, oh my gosh he’s lucky to be alive,” Greenfield said. “It really makes you feel good to know that at the end of the day, and you need someone to protect you, it’s the men and women who protect us and just that they’re up for anything. moment.”
Although Cozart says he is in pain from the accident, he is overwhelmed with gratitude, thanking God for being alive and for everyone who helped after the sinking.
