NAPLES (AP) — Two good Samaritans pulled a Maine woman to safety after she became trapped in a burning car in a violent crash.

Twenty-five-year-old Alicia Szostak says she was driving in Naples when she jerked her steering wheel to avoid hitting a deer. The Bangor Daily News reports she crashed into two trees and the car was left on its side — where a fire began burning.

Szostak says her legs felt numb and she couldn’t get out, before hearing two men stop their car and climb inside to help her out of the vehicle.

Szostak and her husband say the two men saved her life, but the Cumberland County Sheriff ’s Office says one of them left without being identified.

Officials want to recognize the men for bravery.
