Hinton Heroes

(Des Moines) -- Twin brothers from Hinton were honored Friday at the Iowa State Fair for their heroism involving an accident on Highway 75.   Cameron Pierce was presented the Lifesaving Award from Iowa Governor Terry Branstad during ceremonies held Friday.  The Pierce brothers were traveling on Highway 75 south of Hinton last November when they witnessed an accident between a semi truck and a payloader.

The brothers also provided aid to the driver of the pay loader. The semi driver, a man from Texas, survived the fiery crash and Cameron said he received a note from the man's wife days later.

Cameron said. His brother, Riley, was unable to attend the awards ceremony at the Iowa State Fair. The traffic accident last November may've been a sample of what's to come for Cameron. The 20-year-old hopes to be a firefighter. Cameron recently graduated from Western Iowa Tech Community College with a degree in Fire Science.
