Car Fire Rescue

This accident happened on March 23, 1993 in Stockbridge Massachusetts. I used to work for Ryder Truck Rental as a "transfer driver" which means I would pick up a particular truck at one dealer, and would deliver it to another dealer who needed to rent it out.

On this particular night, there was alot of snow on the ground but it was the time of year when the snow melted during the day, and froze at night so it made the roads dangerous at night.

At 11:53 PM, I had come around a corner and saw this car off the side of the road burning. As I was passing it, someone came running at me out of the dark and I had to swerve to avoid hitting him. Thinking it was the driver of the vehicle, I pulled over to try to put the fire out for him. When I got up to the car, I saw that the driver of the car was actually still in the car knocked out from hitting the windshield with his head. I used my fire extinguisher to try to put the fire out, but it re-ignited and all me and the other person (the front seat passenger of the burning car) could do, was pull the driver out throught the window and drag him to safety.

After the Fire Department; State & Local Police and an Ambulance had arrived that the Police Investigation into the accident revealed that there had been black ice on the road at the particular corner that this vehicle had come around, and they lost control and hit a tree and then caught fire.

9 times out of 10 seat belts save lives, but if your knocked out and your car's on fire, it makes it alot harder for people to be able to pull you out. I cut my arms on the broken glass of the window, but it was worth it to pull a stranger out of this car when he needed someone the most.
