HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. — Three good Samaritans were able to help a woman out of a burning car on Friday in Huntersville.
According to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, the trio, including a CMPD officer, sprang into action when they saw a woman trapped in the burning vehicle around 8:45 a.m. on I-77 near Gilead Road.
The three took turns trying to free the woman, switching places near the car when the smoke was too much.
