Thirty-five-year-old Holly McNally helped two men smother the driver’s flames Thursday and move him away from his overturned truck on Interstate 465.

Officials say the 59-year-old driver remains in critical condition Friday morning.

McNally tells WXIN-TV in Indianapolis that she had just visited her newborn boy at a hospital when she saw the burning truck.
