Twin Brothers Rescue Driver From Burning Car on Freeway Ramp

Two brothers helped pull a driver from a burning car early Thursday morning on a freeway near downtown Los Angeles. 

The Los Angeles Fire Department and Los Angeles Police Department responded to a car on fire at 12:50 a.m. at the 6th Street off-ramp on the northbound 110 Freeway. Upon arrival, they found that two twin brothers saved the driver from the car.

"With the first explosion, we stood back," said Kim Jamison. "By the time he got the back door open, we rushed in to pull him out before the second one happened."

The driver was travelling at a high rate of speed and lost control of his vehicle during a turn on the freeway. He reportedly overshot the off-ramp, sending him up through the trees and down a hill onto the 6th Street off-ramp.

He was transported in moderate condition to a nearby hospital, where he will be evaluated to determine if he was driving under the influence, according to the California Highway Patrol.

No other injuries were reported.
