"I knew what I had to do and I slowed my mind down and made sure that we did everything we could to help save this guy," Herkert said. "Time was going so fast, slow, with all the chaos -- pretty sure it was an hour I was on scene. Once paramedics were on scene, they had me go to my car and hang out in there so I wasn't a danger to any traffic coming by."
The driver of the vehicle that hit Quin also pulled over and tried to help. The Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office said that driver showed no signs of impairment.
Despite the efforts, Quin died at the scene.
According to the GoFundMe page, the plan is to have a memorial for Quin in Milwaukee -- and then move his body closer to his parents and siblings in Memphis, Tennessee. CLICK HERE to read more.
