The Billings Fire Department responded to a two-vehicle accident on Sept. 29. Firefighters said no injuries were reported, but both vehicles sustained major damage, making them undrivable.

Firefighter Ryan Benton noticed one of the passengers was a young girl. The 26-year-old took a book and started reading to her to take her mind off the traumatic event.

A bystander snapped a photo and posted it to her Facebook page.

"Sweetest thing ever!" she said. "This fireman is reading books to a little girl after being in an accident. First responders are amazing."

A spokesperson for the Billings Fire Department said that whenever Billings firefighters respond to a fire or a crash, they always carry book bags containing a stuffed animal, a book about firefighters and another book that helps children relate to a scary situation.
