hour to get to the hospital. >> reporter: a ft. worth cop offered an extra push today. icy treacherous roads vexing drivers across the south. in north carolina, slippery highways tossed suvs upside down. one driver died in this crash blamed on ice. but there are also tales of survival. like that couple near charlotte rescued thursday from their car after sliding into this creek. and in minnesota, ryan neslund is counting his blessings tonight. he was on an ice fishing trip when his truck fell through, sinking fast. >> as soon as i knew i was out of air up there i'm like, well this is my last breath that's available so i said, "i'm just going to go for it." and swam down, out the window. >> reporter: saving himself without using his legs. neslund is a parapelegic. >> really, really lucky that i'm here. >> reporter: here in colorado, denver just broke its record for

torn to through the years, at times distancing him from the character. he wrote two books, "i am not spock, " but then "i am spock." in the "star trek" revival, he was cast as an older version of spock. spent years writing poetry. but nothing quite as poetic as his final tweet. a life is like a garden. live long and prosper. and even though he went back and forth over the years about his "star trek" character, he would ultimately say, if i had to be someone else i would be spock. much more coming tonight.
