Three Fort Worth, Texas, patrol officers responding to a major traffic accident pulled a driver out of a burning vehicle involved in a crash on Northwest Loop 820 early Thursday.
The vehicle was on fire when the officers freed the trapped motorist and a civilian who was riding along with one of the officers used a fire extinguisher from a patrol car to help put out the blaze, police Capt. Shawn Stone told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
The driver was taken by ambulance to a local hospital in unknown condition. No other injuries were reported.

ICE issued a statement that reads in part: "This incident may have been prevented if ICE had been notified about any of the multiple times Hernandez-Morales was released from local custody over the last few years. This is an impactful, scary example of how public safety is affected by laws or policies limiting local law enforcement agencies' ability to cooperate with ICE."
