BEL AIR, MD – A man was turning left in his car at an intersection when a school bus ran a red light and hit his car. Witnesses immediately called emergency officials, notifying them that the car had started on fire. A bystander jumped into action by flagging down a different school bus, grabbed a portable fire extinguisher, and put out the flames. When first responders got to the scene, the fire was out and they were able to focus on removing the driver from the car. The father of the car crash survivor told reporters that the bystander who put out the flames and saved his son was an “Angel”.
