Two women were pulled to safety moments before their car bust into flames in Houston, Texas.

A multi-vehicle crash took place around 2 a.m. Sunday, according to Houston police. An Uber transporting the women home was moving northbound on the Eastex Freeway, near Jefferson, when a truck crashed with it. The Uber, a sedan, crashed into the center divider and caught fire. Another car was also involved in the crash.

Clarence Shelvin said he observed the crash happen while he was driving.

“All of a sudden we saw cars coming from all directions and crashing through the wall and everything,” Shelvin said.

He stopped at the scene of the burning car, recruited several men and teamed up with them to rescue the women trapped in the sedan.

Once Shelvin saw the car was wrecked, he knew there was a gas tank right in the back, and at any time there was going to be an explosion.

After pulling the women from the Uber, the car burst into flames and an explosion went all over the place according to Shelvin.

One woman suffered minor injuries in the accident. She was taken to an area hospital for treatment.

An investigation into the crash remains ongoing.
