Several Good Samaritans came to the rescue of a Franklin man who was trapped in a fiery crash in Johnson County early Thursday morning.

Indiana State Police responded to the crash on southbound Interstate 65 at County Road 600 North around 2:15 a.m.

Preliminary investigation revealed 27-year-old Anthony Ingle was driving his 2011 Pontiac Grand Am on I-65 SB, when he lost control of the vehicle and drove off the roadway.  The vehicle went up an embankment and struck the CR 600 overpass before catching fire.

A UPS driver stopped and used his radio to ask for anyone with a fire extinguisher to respond to the scene.  Other motorists also stopped to assist in freeing Ingle.  Authorities said two men used a pry bar to release Ingle from the wreckage while the other motorists used fire extinguishers to contain the blaze.

Ingle was transported to Methodist Hospital due to injuries sustained to his head and burns on his knees.  He was released after receiving treatment.

Drugs nor alcohol are believed to have been factors in the crash, and no charges will be filed.
