OAKLAND, Calif. (KRON) — A heart-racing video shared to social media shows a group of civilians come together to try and save two people from a burning car on I-80 in Richmond.
The incident happened Saturday evening. Officials say the car had crashed into a concrete wall on westbound I-80 at San Pablo Dam Road.
In the video, which has more than 13,000 likes on Twitter, about a dozen Good Samaritans got out of their cars to try and pull the two occupants out of the burning car.
At one point, one person was seen using a saw to cut into the car. The brave bunch was eventually able to pull the driver out of the car.
Unfortunately, the driver later died at a hospital and the passenger died at the scene, according to Oakland police.
No other cars were involved.
It is unknown if drugs or alcohol were a factor in this collision. The collision is still under investigation.
