CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"


Video shows over 10 people, including one woman, who lifted the side of a car enough to pull a man to safety from a fully involved motorcycle fire and well-involved car fire above the victim.

Brandon Wright, 21, and his motorcycle crashed with a BMW Monday morning on eastbound U.S. Highway 89 in Logan near Utah State University. The motorcycle became engulfed in flames and spread to the front end and engine compartment of the BMW. Brandon Wright was under the BMW engine compartment after the crash.


Bystanders checked in disbelief as they checked an saw his body under the vehicle. Over ten people, including a woman, lifted the side of the BMW just enough to pull Brandon Wright, unconconscious, to safety. His shoe and foot was just starting to ignite with flames as the bystanders pulled him out. The flames on his shoe extinguished spontaneously in the cooler position of safety. The woman who helped lift the side of the car is seen in the video getting on her knees to check the victim’s precise location before the lift.

Construction workers, a police officer and bystanders are seen in a well-coordinated impromptu effort to rescue the victim. A construction worker that actually pulled the man from underneath the vehicle was actually one of the last on the scene. He just ran up, while more than 10 other people had the car propped up, and pulled Brandon Wright to safety.

Brandon Wright was airlifted to Intermountain Medical Center in Murray where he his was listed in critical condition. Wright’s father later told Logan Police he is stable.

The video was captured by a Utah State University graduate student who was about to record a lecture.

    It looks to me like they lifted the car more than “just enough”. Nice team effort!
