It was a dramatic rescue early Saturday morning as a College Station police officer pulled an accident victim from a burning car.
Just after 3 a.m., authorities say a 20-year-old Bryan woman was heading south on Texas Avenue at what they call a high rate of speed. She apparently lost control, left the road and hit a utility pole between the Knight's Inn and Applebee's near the University Drive intersection.
When a pair of officers arrived on scene shortly thereafter, the car's engine was reportedly on fire with the driver semi-conscious. Quickly, the officers cut the woman out of her seatbelt and carried her away just moments before the entire vehicle became engulfed.
The woman was taken to St. Joseph Regional Health Center with what are describe as non-life-threatening injuries.
Once the vehicle fire was put out, authorities shut down Texas Avenue until 7 a.m. in order to investigate the wreck.
An investigation is underway.
