FHP: Good Samaritan helps crash victims

Troopers: Good Samaritan pulled victims from fire


ORLANDO, Fla. – At least five people were hurt in a fiery car crash and saved by a good Samaritan, who pulled them out of the vehicles, according to Florida Highway Patrol.

Orange County Fire Rescue said two vehicles were involved in the crash on Narcoossee Road Monday afternoon.

According to Florida Highway Patrol, the driver of a 2004 Mercury was traveling on southbound Narcoossee Road when the driver lost control and traveled into the northbound lanes.

The Mercury struck a box truck that was traveling northbound and the impact caused both vehicles to catch fire, troopers said. 

Authorities say Stuart Chaffin pulled a victim out of the car before help arrived and then started helping others out of the truck.

Chaffin suffered minor burns and was taken to a hospital.

Four people were taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center, OCFR said. It's not clear what the extent of their injuries are.

Northbound Narcoossee Road was closed at Emerson Lake Boulevard to State Road 417 as the investigation continued for hours.

The identities of the victims were not released.
