Good Samaritans Rescue Woman Trapped in Burning SUV near Highway 52

 
MIRAMAR, CA (September 18, 2018) – Two people were hospitalized Tuesday morning following a fiery crash on Highway 163. The identities of the victims were not immediately released to the public.
 
According to the California Highway Patrol, a speeding white box truck rear-ended a 2006 Toyota Highlander at about 8:00 AM near Highway 52. The impact of the crash pushed the SUV into several vehicles, after which the Highlander went off the roadway and caught fire.
 
A US Marine, identified as Marine Sergeant Gary Wilson, was on his way to work when he saw the collision. He immediately exited his vehicle and rushed to the burning vehicle to rescue the trapped driver. Wilson broke a passenger-side window with his elbow and pulled the woman to safety with help from a bystander.
 
The 48-year-old Highlander driver and a 29-year-old Poway woman were transported to the Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla with moderately serious and severe injuries, but they are expected to survive. No other injuries were reported by the authorities.
 
An investigation is ongoing to determine the cause of the crash and to identify possible contributing factors. Additional information will be released once available.
 
When driving, it is important to keep your distance from the vehicles ahead of you, especially when traveling at high speeds on the highway. Always keep an eye out for fellow motorcyclists, pedestrians, bicyclists, and other cars that are sharing the road. By obeying traffic rules and driving defensively, dangerous accidents can be prevented.
