Good Samaritan puts out fire after I-15 rollover crash
SAN DIEGO, CA – A good Samaritan stopped and put out a vehicle fire after a car accident on Interstate 15 in Oceanside on Monday afternoon.
According to CHP, a yellow Mitsubishi sedan was northbound when it crashed with a pickup truck and overturned just before the offramp to Rainbow Valley Boulevard at about 5:20 a.m. The overturned sedan was blocking two freeway lanes and several vehicles then stopped and blocked at least one more. Debris was also scattered across the freeway.
When the sedan began to catch fire, a quick-acting good Samaritan pulled out a fire extinguisher and knocked back the fire.
An ambulance was called to the scene. It has not been confirmed whether anyone was injured.
Alcohol was suspected to be a factor in the crash.
