HAMILTON, NJ – A Hamilton police officer and another bystander acted quickly to pull a 43-year-old man from his car after a fiery crash last week.
According to NJ.com, Officer Ryan Fratz arrived at the scene at the Klockner Road and Kuser Road to a fully engulfed vehicle at about 2 a.m. last Wednesday. The driver, Auner Rauda, had been driving a 2002 Honda CR-V east when he crossed the center line and slammed into a tree.
The responding officer and another man, John Hodniki, each grabbed one of the man’s arms and pulled Rauda from his burning vehicle.
He was transported to Capital Health Regional Medical Center with serious injuries. An update on his condition was not available, but the victim has made a point to offer his gratitude to the officer and civilian.
The accident is still under investigation.
