Seven people were taken to the hospital, including two Prichard police officers.
Larry Johnson and his relatives say they heard the accident on Highway 45 and immediately ran toward the crash, pulling the victims from the wreckage.
Mayor Troy Ephriam presented the family with a city Heroism Award for their actions.
The two officers remain hospitalized with broken bones. The 5 other people injured in the incident have been released from the hospital.
