Three good Samaritans helped pulled a man out of a burning car that got hit on Interstate 5 in Tacoma on Thursday night.
The 39-year-old Auburn man was injured and taken to a local hospital for treatment, the Washington State Patrol reported.
No other injuries were reported.
The man’s car had been disabled. It didn’t have any lights on and was in a lane of northbound I-5 just south of South 56th Street, the Washington State Patrol reported.
A semi-truck struck the disabled car, pushing it up the embankment on the right shoulder. The car burst into flames.
The semi-truck went up the embankment about 50 yards away. The driver was not injured.
Three Samaritans stopped, got the man out of his seat belt and pulled him from the car.
The crash was under investigation.
