Couple crashes vehicle, passersby rescue both from burning car
GRAVES COUNTY, Ky. — Two people likely survived a fiery crash because of passersby who stopped to rescue them from their vehicle.
Kentucky State Police said Marilyn Lee Feezor and Tony Neal Walker were traveling northbound on KY 129 when the passenger side tires left the road. The driver over-corrected, causing the car to lose control, rotate counter-clockwise and leave the road.
The car hit a tree on the passenger side and the car caught fire. At that time three passersby stopped to check on the wreck and pulled both Feezor and Walker from the burning car.
The driver, Freezor of Mayfield, was treated and released at the scene. The passenger of the car, Walker of Palmersville, Tennessee, was taken to the hospital for injuries sustained during the crash.
