Details of the tragedy that resulted in Jerry Brown Jr.'s death has taken another turn. When news first broke of the car crash, we heard that when Police arrived, they witnessed fellow Cowboy and friend Josh Brent trying to pull Brown from the vehicle. But an eyewitness has come forward to say that was not the case at all at first. She arrived at the accident shortly after it happened and saw Brent just walking around while Brown was still trapped in the car, calling for help. “Josh looked at me and he said ‘(Brown) won’t get out of the car,’” McWilliams told the Dallas Morning News. “And I said ‘well you can’t just leave him in there and let him die, you’ve got to help him. Go get him.’ I commanded him several times and Josh looked at me again and he said ‘he won’t get out of the car’ and I told him ‘you can’t stand here and watch him die. You’ve got to get him out.’ He still didn’t move so I thought he wasn’t going to help at all.” According to McWilliams, he was pretty reluctant to help his friend out of the car. As she went to get her cell phone, he did finally help, which Police arriving at the scene witnessed. “I want people to understand that Josh Brent is not a hero,” McWilliams said. “I keep hearing reports of how he was there to pull his friend from the fire but he had to be coerced and pushed and begged and pleaded to get his friend out of the fire and when he pulled him out, he just left him in the street. He didn’t tell him ‘hang in there, help is on the way.’ Nothing. He just left him there and I want the magnitude of that to be understood.”
