Good Samaritans Pull Man from Burning Car in NJ

In the Franklin Township of New Jersey, police are looking for two Good Samaritans who pulled a man from his car after it smashed into a tree and caught fire.

According to officer Dominick Zeveney, the victim probably would have sustained life-threatening injuries without the assistance of the samaritans.

The department wants to identify them so they can be “publicly recognized for their brave and heroic efforts to save the driver,” he added.

The accident was near 384 Sidney Road (Route 617) on Friday, April 12, just after 1 p.m. Patrolman Kevin Bollaro responded to a 911 call and learned that a 62-year-old Califon man was traveling southbound and swerved to avoid striking a deer that had entered the roadway.

His SUV left the road, slammed into a tree on the east side, sustained heavy front-end damage and caught fire. Two people pulled the driver from the burning vehicle and placed him next to it.

R.J. Fisher of Fisher Auto Body in Croton responded to haul the wrecked car away on a flatbed wrecker.
