A Michigan firefighter was caught on video racing to rescue a man safely after his car overturned in a car crash and rolled into the path of an oncoming train, officials said.
Portage police and firefighters responded to reports that two vehicles collided at the intersection of Shaver Road and West Center Avenue around 6:20 a.m. Friday, Portage Public Safety said.
First responders arrived and found a Chevrolet Cruze with a badly damaged front end at the intersection and a Jeep overturned and straddling the tracks.
Authorities said the driver of the jeep was still in the vehicle and was unable to move due to back pain.

“Firefighters, realizing what was about to happen, dragged the jeep driver to safety and pulled him to safety just seconds before the southbound train entered the intersection and collided with the vehicle. I took him to,” he said.
