BONNERS FERRY, Idaho (AP) _ Montel Williams is more than just talk.

Police credit the talk show host and ex-Marine Williams with helping save a 16-year-old from being burned following a car accident Saturday.

After the teen’s pickup spun out of control and struck a tree, Williams and his driver stopped and pulled the boy from the vehicle just as it caught fire, police said. Williams carried the boy on his back up an embankment a safe distance away.
