Dramatic video shows Michigan cop pull man from fiery car wreck

Dramatic video footage shows a Michigan cop running toward the flaming wreckage of a car – then pulling the dazed driver to safety.

Harper Woods Officer Luke Pauly’s bodycam footage shows him speeding to the near a massive crash on Interstate 94 outside Detroit last Sunday.

Flames blaze and smoke pours from a car in the distance while traffic is at a standstill.

Pauly, 30, then sprints towards the engulfed car as skid marks, twisted metal and debris from the crash are seen scattered across the highway and its shoulder. People along the highway tell Pauly someone’s in a car that apparently flipped in the crash.

“He’s in the car?” Pauly is heard asking bystanders as scorching fire is seen in the distance.

When he gets to the car, a man is seen on the passenger side, reaching over the window to clutch the door handle on the outside. The man was the driver, who Pauly told WDIV may have ended up in the passenger seat by force of the impact.

The driver attempted to escape through the passenger side as the flames spread throughout the vehicle.

He was apparently fighting off passing out to try to get away from the blaze as it grew in intensity.

In footage from the camera of another officer, Pauly is seen pulling the man from the wreck by his arms, dragging him across the pavement until he’s a safe distance from the flames. The man was coming in and out of consciousness, reports said.

“I was worried it was gonna blow up,” he told FOX 2. “I never knew that cars don’t explode so it was popping … I think it was from the tires.”

The man is recovering and no one was injured despite the severity of the accident, the station reported.

The officer told WDIV things may have turned out more grim if police arrived even a few minutes later.

“All I could think was perfect timing,” Pauly said. “Glad we got here.”
