What an amazing man! The car appeared to have skidded on the wet road, hit a ditch and flipped over, according to TMZ. The upside down car landed in front of Jamie’s house, and burst into flames; in photos from the scene, it looked absolutely crushed. Jamie told CHP (California Highway Patrol) officers when they appeared at the scene that as soon as he heard the crash, he ran outside, and upon seeing Brett still buckled in the front seat, knew he had to do something — the flaming car could burst into flames.
Jamie unbuckled him, and dragged him 30 feet away from the wrecked car! The driver suffered serious injuries, including broken bones and severe burns, but Jamie saved his life. The man was taken to the hospital as soon as police and firefighters arrived on the scene to assist him.
After arriving at the hospital and treated for his injuries, Brett was booked for a DUI. This is apparently not Brett’s first serious accident; his truck flipped over in 2007 after hitting a drainage pipe.
