Bridgeport – Motorist Rescued From Vehicle Blaze

A woman was rescued from a burning car in Bridgeport early Tuesday morning.

At approximately 4:15 a.m., Officer Kathleen Ramirez was traveling on Chopsey Hill Road when she discovered a vehicle that crashed, overturned, and caught fire. She immediately reported the incident and then saw that a female motorist was trapped inside the burning vehicle. She attempted to extricate the person and was soon assisted by Sgt. Joaquim DeBarros.  A short time later, fire and EMS teams also arrived, and everyone at the scene worked to roll the vehicle over so that the victim could be safely extricated. The motorist has since been transported to the hospital for treatment. There is currently no indication that other vehicles were involved in the crash, but the case is still under investigation. Officials will release more details when appropriate.

Emergency responders are, without a second thought, always willing to risk their own safety to help/rescue motorists involved in various road incidents. This cannot be overstated, and authorities will also exhibit the same dedication when investigating these cases so that liable parties can be apprehended.
