A police officer pulled a woman from a burning car after it crashed in El Segundo Sunday evening.
Officers said the woman crashed into two power poles on Aviation Boulevard and El Segundo Boulevard just after 6 p.m. The car burst into flames.
The woman was taken to the hospital with serious to critical injuries.
In video from the patrol car’s dashboard camera, Officer Armando Rodriguez is seen running to the burning vehicle to pull the 22-year-old female driver from her car.
Officer Rodriguez is heard calling for paramedics and checking to see if other passengers are in the backseat shortly before the car is engulfed in flames.
The footage shows three good Samaritans approach the car to check if others are in the back. Officer Rodriguez is heard calling for help and shouting for the others to get to safety.
The driver was taken to the hospital with major trauma. She is currently in stable condition.
Officer Rodriguez was transported to the hospital after suffering smoke inhalation and minor burns. He has been released and is expected to return to work next week
