A teen driver who had become trapped within his vehicle was fortunately pulled to safety by CHP officers yesterday morning, September 11. Connor Hicks, a 19-year-old teenager, was unconscious when reached by the California Highway Patrol officer, who saved him from car accident injuries which could have been life-threatening.
Hicks was traveling southbound on Interstate 5 during the middle of the afternoon in the vicinity of Camp Pendleton. Driving in his 2003 Lincoln Navigator, Hicks inexplicably strayed off his course on the road into a Dodge Ram that was sitting stationary on the shoulder. Hicks’ vehicle, the Navigator, then became engulfed in flames on the shoulder with Hicks inside. Before Hicks himself began to catch fire, a CHP officer was able fortunately able to reach the scene and the flaming vehicle, grabbing unconscious Hicks in adequate time to save his life.
Authorities said that Hicks sustained several injuries during the accident and resulting fire, including third-degree burns and an injury to his jaw. An individual that remained in the parked vehicle on the road was also taken to a nearby hospital after taking on major injuries in his arm, back, and legs.
