FCA Design Chief Uses Jeep Wrangler to Help Victims in Fiery Crash Scene

The FCA head of design, Ralph Gilles, reminds us once again how useful the Jeep Wrangler can be when he rendered assistance with his Wrangler at a fiery crash scene that left one victim dead.  The fiery accident occurred two weekends ago north of Detroit when two vehicles collided head-on.  Coming upon the scene, Gilles used his Wrangler to push a Ford Edge engulfed in flames across the road in an attempt to free a couple trapped in the other vehicle.

Of his actions, Gilles said: “I still have no idea where that (thought) came from. The only thing I can remember thinking (is) I’ve got a Jeep, it’s got a bumper on it, I think I can do this. All I could think about were the two people still inside the other car.”
