That's exactly what happened on a busy Dallas highway recently and it was caught on video which you can watch at the bottom of this article. The recording was posted by @MrWilson339528.

That is a Big Fire

The footage begins with a guy driving a big rig approaching a car engulfed in flames. You would have to wonder if driving that close to a car on fire is safe. 


The Driver is Safe

The man narrating the video says that the driver is out of the car and safe, hanging out on the side of the road, so that's a relief.

Where are the Fire Trucks?

There are three police cars on the scene, but no fire trucks. We assume those are on the way. Seeing a car on fire is scary, but it's important to know that help is always on the way. We should all remember to stay safe when we're driving and to be careful with our cars. Let's hope incidents like this don't happen again anytime soon.
