BARNSTABLE, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) -- A man passing by a car fire in the Marstons Mills section of Barnstable jumped into action Wednesday, rescuing a woman from the blaze.

The car went up in flames at about 6:15 p.m. after it slammed into a utility pole on Santuit-Newtown Road. The driver fled the scene, leaving a young woman trapped in the car.

The driver was later caught in a nearby wooded area suffering from an apparent head injury by off-duty police officer John Campbell.

A photographer at the scene said a man named Mike McNally pulled the woman from the wreck. She suffered burns over 30-percent of her body and was transported to the hospital via medical helicopter.

The driver was transported to the hospital. His condition is not known. A police official tells FOX 25 he will likely face charges.

The crash is under investigation by Barnstable police.
