Connecticut State Police have identified a good Samaritan who they said rescued a man from a burning vehicle in Stamford earlier this month.
Troopers said the man was driving a tow truck on Sept. 4 when he stopped at a burning vehicle and helped pull the driver, who was trapped, to safety. It happened around 5:25 a.m. on I-95 near exit 9 in Stamford.
The good Samaritan's actions saved the victim's life, police said.
State police said they have since identified the man, but they have not released his name to the public.
