Passing motorists save car fire victims

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Two passengers trapped in a fiery pickup truck are safe Sunday afternoon thanks to some quick thinking motorists. 

Investigators say a suspected drunk driver in a silver Subaru clipped the back of the pickup truck while traveling at speeds of around 100 miles per hour on the Northbound 163.

The truck flipped on its side, crashed through the roadside barriers, and caught fire.

Passing motorists rushed to the aid of the couple trapped in the burning truck.

Both victims were conscious and alert when medics arrived. There is no word on the status of the Subaru driver.
