Several motorists saved the life of a dump truck driver after a crash in Maryland on Friday morning. 

The accident happened on May 20th in Rosedale at around 8 a.m. on Interstate 95. 

According to Fox 45, the dump truck crashed into a guard rail and burst into flames on I-95 near Hazelwood Avenue. Several motorists stopped when they saw the wreck and helped to pull the driver out of the burning rig. 

The driver escaped the crash with non life threatening injuries.

The southbound lanes were shut for several hours for cleanup, but have since been reopened. 

“Thanks to their bravery, the driver escaped with non-life-threatening injuries,” said Elise Armacost, a spokeswoman for the Baltimore County Fire Department.
