Man Pulled From Burning Vehicle in Hubbard County
A man was pulled from a burning vehicle seconds before it was engulfed in flames Thursday south of Becida on County Road 3. Responders at the scene say the woman who pulled him from the wreck likely saved his life.
Yesterday, just before 6 PM, two employees of Precision Pipeline witnessed a vehicle lose control at a fast speed and then veer off of the road and become airborne after it hit a driveway, eventually smashing the front of the vehicle and starting a fire. The workers quickly jumped in and dragged the man away from the vehicle, which then burst into higher flames.
After the car had been extinguished, firefighters told the employees that their quick thinking had saved the man’s life. The man was responsive following the accident and was given first aid at the scene.
