Man Saves Driver from Accident Before Car Erupts in Flames

On a Virginia highway, Meredith Congress, 65, was able to rescue a driver from a crashed vehicle before it exploded into flames.

The Toyota sedan was traveling on Interstate 64 in Henrico County around 4:15 a.m. on Saturday when it ran off the road and struck a sign post. Congress saw the car and was able to pull the driver out of the car on the passenger side.

Henrico Fire Capt. Daniel Rosenbaum identified the hero as Meredith Congress.

Congress was on his way to work when he saw the car smoking heavily and the driver screaming for help. Henrico County Division of Fire units arrived in five minutes to find the car completely engulfed in flames. Crews were able to extinguish the car fire and treat the driver who was transported to a nearby hospital with "significant" injuries.

Congress has since been called a hero and "Good Samaritan" by residents on the fire department's Facebook page. One Facebook user said, "Thank God for good and decent people in this world!" Congress spoke with police then went to work.
