Car fire slows traffic on I-75

Posted: Updated:

Monday, during morning traffic, a car burst into flames on I-75 and slowed traffic.

It happened near the Shallowford Road exit. One driver captured it all on camera.

Allan Valenzuela tells Channel 3 he saw the smoke from a distance and as he got closer to the fire he saw a woman pulling items from the car.

That's when he pulled over to help get the woman away from the car.

"She was shocked she fell into my arm when I finally got her away from that car. I felt her trembling and I think she didn't know what to think.  I think her life just in that moment would have took a turn and not for the good." said Valenzuela.

The woman was the only person in the burning car.

There were no injuries reported.
