On Nov. 4, the New Jersey State Troopers Thomas O’Connor and Christopher Warwick rescued an unconscious man from a flaming car in the middle of the State Highway 42 in Gloucester Township, Camden County.

The troopers had received a call at 11:23 p.m., about a car that had crashed into the grass median strip.

By the time they arrived, they saw a Ford Fusion against the metal guardrail with smoke coming off the car. The driver was unconscious with his foot pressed against the accelerator.

Not long after O’Connor and Warwick arrived at the scene, the front end of the car burst into flames.

They immediately rushed over and began to free the driver from the car.

The flames were spreading very quickly, but the two troopers were able to pull the man out of the driver’s side window. He was then dragged to safety, just as the vehicle became fully engulfed in flames.

Once the driver was out of the car, he regained consciousness. He did not sustain any injuries from the crash.

After EMS evaluated him, the driver declined further medical help or attention.
