A driver in Texas fell asleep at the wheel and slammed into a tree, causing his car to burst into flames, police say.
A police officer on his way home saw the fire and jumped into action.
A sergeant in the department spotted a wrecker driver trying to free the trapped man and stopped to help, police said. He called for backup as the flames spread closer to the driver.
“We might have to break your leg, bro,” a deputy said. “I’m sorry.”
“No, no,” the driver said.
