A Maryland man who helped save a passenger in a car that drove off the road and hit a tree said police seized his vehicle.

Benjamin Davis told Fox 5 DC that he feels he was treated like a suspect and is now stranded at his home because police took his car following the deadly accident in which he risked his life.

“I don’t know those gentlemen–I don’t know anyone–I just saw an accident happen. I just wanted to help someone and that’s what I thought I did. And I was treated like a suspect,” Davis told the station.

He was driving on the evening of Dec. 9 when he saw the car driven by Kyree Payne, who died in the accident, veer off the road.

“I rushed down, and out of the passenger window there was an individual hanging out halfway, and his friend was like crushed down on top of his body–the hood of the car was crushed down,” he told Fox 5 DC. “I pulled him out onto the ground. The other guy, he appeared already dead to me. He was trapped in by the roof and everything.”

Davis said he waited for paramedics and answered cops’ questions before getting permission to leave the scene. He said he drove a block away before he was pulled over by law enforcement and his car was seized.

This is strange, they just sent me away from an accident scene. So why are you pulling me over?” Davis said. “They were like–no, if you don’t want to stay, your car is being towed. So l was like, ‘What is going on here? What is this really about?’ They said, ‘You don’t want to cooperate, your car will get towed.’ My vehicle was stolen. I was not written a citation or ticket or anything for any infraction, so there is no probable cause to even pull my vehicle over. I’m just upset that someone lost their life. They had no respect for human life.”

Davis told Fox 5 that he’s contacted a lawyer and that he heard that the man whose life he saved is in the hospital fighting for his life.
