CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. (WIVB) — When motorists were stopped in their tracks after a dump truck carrying stone flipped and burst into flames, some stopped to record.
One motorist captured video of the wreck flaming, and another captured images of a driver being rescued from the flaming wreckage. Larry Coulter, the driver, was shaken, but he survived and was out of the hospital soon after.
“I was very, very, very, lucky. If he wouldn’t have been able to break that glass, I would have died,” Coulter said. “He saved my life today. I owe him eternal gratitude.”
Coulter and the man who rescued him were reunited less than 24 hours after the visual accident. You can watch that story live at 5 p.m.
