INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — An Indiana woman who had given birth three days earlier says her instincts kicked in when she stopped along a highway to help save the driver of a tanker truck who was on fire.
The truck loaded with jet fuel later exploded.
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.
