BURLINGTON COUNTY, NJ – Dash-cam footage from a Burlington Township police officer’s vehicle shows citizens pulling a victim from a crash right before the car erupts in flames.
According to Daily Voice, the accident happened near a gas station at Sunset Road and Salem Road on Sunday morning. Officers responded to a report of an SUV accident and found that two bystanders had already begun to remove an unconscious man from the heavily smoking car.
An officer helped as they took the victim to a grassy area away from the car, which then caught fire. Firefighters arrived soon after to douse the flames.
Dominique Golden and Larry Scott had stopped to help even before authorities were arrived on the scene.
Further details have not been released.
