MOUNTAIN VIEW (CBS SF) — A Mountain View police officer’s actions may have saved the life of a man involved in a fiery collision in a rescue captured on the officer’s body-worn camera.

Police posted a video of the May 13 incident from Officer Travis Herbek’s bodycam on Wednesday. The video shows Herbeck arriving at the solo crash site on Central Expressway at Ravendale Dr. and comes upon a car fully engulfed in flames.

As Herbek runs toward the car, he sees a man lying in the middle of the road as cars drove past the crash scene.

Herbek then jumps over the center divider and runs over to the man who said his legs were broken. Herbek then managed to pull the victim off the roadway and onto the shoulder of the Central Expressway.
