Witnesses save driver’s life after fiery crash in Lake Highlands

A two-vehicle collision involving a garbage truck and a sedan on Wednesday, Nov. 25 trapped the driver of the sedan as flames rose from the hood of his car. A couple delivering cookies to the nearby Walmart inadvertently became the first responders and helped call 911 and extinguish the flames from the vehicle.

According to preliminary investigations,  garbage disposal truck driver had struck the BMW sedan as it was coming from the opposite side of Northwest Highway, and as the truck driver had been trying to make his way into a parking lot from the same highway.

Dallas Fire-Rescue search and rescue crews were able to extinguish the fire, separate the garbage truck from the car, and get the victim out of the burning car.
