A Houston couple is lucky to be alive this afternoon after being involved in horrific crash which led to their truck catching fire and exploding into flames soon after. A local man, driving behind the couple, pulled over immediately, ran to them, and pulled the screaming couple out of the truck seconds before it burst into flames.
Lalo Ponce is the name of the local hero that pulled the couple out of the truck, and after taking them both to safety, he shared a video of what was left of the vehicle and told his story. We were able to speak to Ponce EXCLUSIVELY and he told us that it all happened in a matter of minutes, shortly after the couple was pulled out the truck, it exploded into flames.
Check out the footage:
“I am very thankful with our lord and savior, Jesus Christ, for putting me at the scene of the accident to be able to help,” Ponce said, “I think of my kids and if they were in a similar situation, my hopes are that someone would do the same for them.”
We wish the couple a speedy recovery and we are glad that there are plenty of good people in Bull Country willing to do anything to help a brother or sister in need, AMEN!
