CORINTH – A Corinth man is lucky to be alive after being pulled to safety from his burning car Saturday afternoon.
Maine State Police said 59 year old Bryant Haskins failed to negotiate a corner, went off the road, and lost control of the vehicle.
We are told it rolled several times before catching fire.
Ralph Grey witnessed the accident and was the first on scene.
He jumped into action when he saw flames shooting from the car.
“I ran up to the car, opened the door, and pulled him out of his seat belt.” said Grey.
The single-vehicle crash happened on Tate Road just before 2 p.m. on Saturday.
“As i was running up, it was flaming up towards him.” said Grey.
No one else was in the car at the time of the crash.
Grey said the driver was in shock but was able to walk away without major injuries.
“He wasn’t going very fast. That’s why it startled me how he hit it so hard. He wasn’t going very fast.” said Grey.
Maine State police say Haskins received minor injuries.
