Good Samaritan saves two people from burning car
Police say speed, alcohol, and maybe even drugs played a role in the Sunday afternoon crash, but both victims survived the fiery crash. And a passer- by is being credited by police in being at the right place...at the right time.
Police told WYMT-TV the pair wrecked after their Ford hit a culvert and flipped. The car burst into flames and the Good Samaritan jumped in…to pull them to safety.
Police say the driver, Alen Wombles, 30, said a motorcycle pulled out in front of him. But police say alcohol and possibly even meth were factors in the crash.
Regardless of charges, police say it’s good that a Good Samaritan was willing to help.
Both victims were taken to UK hospital but police say they will face charges upon their release, depending on the results of lab work..
