BODY CAM VIDEO

The officers’ body cams were on as they rescued a distraught woman from a burning car (CBS 2’s Chris Tye reports).

Zion police and firefighter/paramedics responded to a vehicle crash at approximately 11:30 pm on Friday, October 11, 2019, near the intersection of Sheridan Road and 29th Street. Witnesses reported that a vehicle was on fire. Officers discovered that a single vehicle had struck a light pole on 29th Street just west of the intersection and flames could be seen coming from the engine compartment. The silver Buick Lucerne struck the pole directly in the center of the front of the car at the engine.

Zion police officer Steve Vines discovered that the female driver was lying across the front passenger seat, bleeding heavily from the head and complaining of an injury to her leg or foot. Officer Vines attempted to open the driver’s side door but was unable to due to damage to the door. He attempted to use a window punch to break the driver’s side window but it was unable to shatter the window due to a window tint application. Officer Casey Taylor arrived on scene and the officers moved to the passenger side. The front passenger door was also damaged by the impact and could not be opened, but the passenger door window was already broken. Both police officers were able to pull the driver through the broken window in the front passenger door and away from the burning car at a scene near Zion City Hall.

Officer Steve Vines noticed a gas can had been placed and transported on the back seat of the burning car, but both police officers, taking significant risk, were able to safely pull the female driver and sole occupant of the vehicle from the car without the gas can igniting.

Zion Fire-Rescue Department firefighter/paramedics arrived soon afterwards, and extinguished the flames and treated the woman. Firefighter/paramedics transported the driver to Advocate Condell Medical Center for treatment. The cause of the crash is under investigation by the Zion Police Department.

On Facebook, Zion Fire-Rescue Department complimented the officer at Zion Police Department.

Tonight crews responded to a vehicle vs. pole with fire. Kudos to our partners at Zion PD for removing the patient from the vehicle prior to our arrival and preventing further serious injury! The patient was transported to Condell Medical Center.
