Three Fairfax County police officers who came upon the scene of a burning car just outside Fairfax City pulled the driver from her car just before it exploded, Fairfax police said.
The unidentified driver, a 23-year-old Ashburn woman, had plowed her Mustang into a parked bulldozer in the work area on Route 50 near Waples Mill Road, early last Friday, April 15, around 2:15 a.m., according to Gregg MacDonald in the Loudoun Times-Mirror.
Lieutenant Kevin Barrington was first on the scene, followed by Officers Jessica Kane and Nate Sloan. The three smashed in the driver’s side window, pulled the woman out and tried to extinguish the flames before the car exploded, MacDonald reports.
The woman suffered minor injuries and was later charged with drunk driving.
