BINGHAMTON, NEW YORK — A massive ten-car pileup on the highway in upstate New York almost resulted in the death of a woman trapped in her vehicle. Thanks to a group of fast-acting fellow drivers, miraculously, they were able to pull her from the wreckage of her burning car.
Dashcam video recorded August 25 shows the moment the horrific crash occurs. A tractor-trailer reportedly lost control and plowed through cars in a scene resembling a monster truck rally.
Moments later, drivers in nearby vehicles notice a car caught on fire. A woman is trapped in her car pressed against the side of the highway. The video captures the other drivers rushing to her aid, smashing windows and trying desperately to rip the car open in the face of the scorching flames. One of them grabs a fire extinguisher out of their car and unleashes it on the burning vehicle. As he puts out the fire, more people rush in to help, and they manage to get her out. Fortunately, there were no fatalities, the only being minor cuts and bruises.
The Mayor of Binghamton published this video to Facebook to thank the brave citizens for helping a stranger in face of danger. He also noted that the heroes have yet to be identified, and would like to recognize them for their courageous efforts.
