Kevin Durant saw an emergency vehicle stuck in traffic while driving around in his Ferrari. He decided to lend a hand to help clear the way.
EMSA paramedics credit Durant, who plays for the Oklahoma City Thunder, with helping him respond to two emergencies.
“We were stuck in traffic, so pretty much cars surrounding us all over,” EMSA paramedic Peter Radford tells News 9. “All of a sudden, I see a silver Ferrari or a silver sports car pull in behind us.”

Durant was completely calm and collected through the entire situation like any other emergency personnel would be.
“He waves to me. I just thought that was so cool that someone like Kevin Durant would take the time to assist this emergency vehicle getting to an emergency call,” Radford said.

“I see this Ferrari has it’s flashers on,” he said. “It’s actually making way for us to get through and navigate all the traffic.”
“Once we actually get through all the traffic, this silver Ferrari comes over to the side and waves to my partner,” Radford said. “And my partner goes ‘Do you have any idea who that is?’ And of course I’m clueless. ‘That’s Kevin Durant.'”
Durant says the whole thing was no big deal.
“I saw the ambulance from behind me, and it was kind of slow in front of me, and I moved over. I said, ‘I’m just going to follow the ambulance so I can get through traffic real quick,’” Kevin Durant said. “So I moved over. I can’t take full credit for that.”
Durant’s Thunder will play the Golden State Warriors on Monday so he needs all the good karma he can get.
