Neighbors pull driver from fiery crash in North Carolina
KNIGHTDALE, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina authorities say people living near a crash scene helped pull a driver to safety before the car was engulfed in flames.
WRAL-TV reports that the crash happened Sunday night in Knightdale.
Troopers say the car was traveling 80 mph or higher when it left the road, hit a driveway and went airborne. It then hit the ground and caught fire.
Authorities say neighbors heard the crash and ran to the scene. It took them several attempts to break into the rear window and get the driver’s door open. Authorities say the neighbors pulled the man out just before flames engulfed the car.
The driver was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.
