Santa directs traffic

You better watch out, you better not cry. You better not pout, I'm telling you why: One day, Santa Claus himself might pull you from your burning Ford Explorer Sport Trac before you're engulfed in flames. Brad Luddeke was on his way to deliver gifts to needy children when he came upon an accident just outside of Dallas, Texas. Luddeke saw the vehicle was beginning to catch fire and helped pull the man from the vehicle before the flames consumed the rest of the truck. No one was seriously harmed in the incident, but Luddeke wasn't through performing his good deeds for the day.

The good Samaritan then proceeded to direct traffic through the smoke-filled intersection to prevent another collision. Something tells us the former fire fighter has definitely made the 'Nice' list this year. Click past the jump to view a quick clip of Santa's traffic-directing skills in action.
