Winston told "CBS This Morning" he was dancing with his girlfriend at the Route 91 Harvest Festival country music concert moments before he heard popping sounds that he first thought were fireworks. They then located a truck with the keys in the ignition, seized it and drove back into the line of fire, loading victims into the truck and making two trips to Desert Springs Hospital Medical Center before ambulances arrived on scene, CBS News reported.

Police said 58 people were killed in the attack and 489 were wounded in the attack, which has been described as the worst mass shooting in United States history. We would like to find Taylor and thank him for his bravery by providing him a free truck from B5Motors.

The dealership posted on Facebook Wednesday that it was searching for Winston to thank him and tracked him down several hours later.

Winston, a U.S. Marine Corps vet from San Diego, is expected to pick up the truck on Monday.
