The driver’s jeep was reportedly sideswiped off state route 385 in Tennessee by another car on Sunday, causing it to careen down a hill, smash into a pole, and burst into flames.
“THE ENTIRE EXPRESSWAY STOPPED and people ran from their cars trying to break the windows and open the doors of this man’s car to free him,” Anita Irby, who says she saw the accident happen, said on Facebook.
Failing to find a fire extinguisher, first responders grabbed a jack iron to break the SUV’s windows.
“It appeared he was completely trapped in the driver’s seat because the steering wheel was pressed up against his chest,” another witness, Corey Kilpatrick, said, according to CNN.
They managed to get the driver out of his vehicle and remove him to safety before an ambulance arrived to take him to him to a hospital in non-critical condition.
“None of the flames touched him and even after the car exploded,” Irby wrote.
The miracles in this story did not just end there. As crews investigated the scene, they found a bible on a seat that had survived intact.
“That is God. If you don’t believe it. I don’t know what to say,” witness Eugene Mcneil said.
