Good Samaritan Saves Driver From Burning Car After Crash
Occurred on December 3, 2022 / USA
Info from Licensor: My Boyfriend and I were coming back from our date night. We enter the freeway and once we kept driving further down we notice this person inside the car kept swerving. Our plans were to get down from the freeway and get some food. However, my boyfriend and I decided to call 911 and report it. Then the driver swerving started racing other cars so we had lost him. They said to just avoid him and if we see anything else to call. Once we get down to the nearest exit, we see he is in front of us and just stopped. My boyfriend honks at him so we could get through. Then he wakes up. We try to get his attention by seeing his face and how he wasn’t looking so great. We try to avoid him from crashing or anything worse happening, but he decides to carry-on and drive. Then he starts swerving again and leaning into the ramp and we are guessing that scares him. He was about to crash into the wall by the freeway once you enter the freeway. He misses but still starts driving in the other direction from left to right. Then he starts driving straight forward near some bushes and near electricity poles and a brick wall, behind that wall there was some apartment complex. He speeds and goes straight towards a bush. He hits a street sign pole and then the car hits the bush. The car rolls over like twice and lands near an electricity pole. Then immediately the car starts getting caught on fire. Slowly escalating into a bigger fire. My boyfriend gets down to go help and so do I. As I see that the car was very crashed and there is only one way to open the door to get him out I decided to instead record to gather proof of what exactly is happening. My boyfriend right away opens the door from the passenger seat. I see he was in the process of getting him out. I scream “hurry baby”, because I start seeing the car getting into the fire and I see the smoke inside the car. My fear was that both would be caught in the fire. So I decided to just cut the video and see why he wasn’t coming out to see if there was any way I could help. I was also thinking of calling the cops. Then once I was about to do that, thankfully my boyfriend gets the unconscious person out of the car and takes him out of the fire. We then call the cops and try to calm down the person that was just been injured. He seemed confused and wasn’t understanding what just happened. We told him to sit down and he kept asking if that was his car, I kept telling him yes but to just sit down and everything was going to be okay. He still seemed very unconscious and didn’t even remember his name as I kept asking if he can tell me his name. Minutes after that the cops showed up.
